Instructions

Search on IMDb.com for the title you want. On the Wikipedia page of the film concerned this can often be done with the link produced by previewing IMDb title at the Internet Movie Database (this may not work if the page title is more than just the film title). Click on the correct link to go to the movie's page (or whatever you're looking for). Be sure you're getting on the correct title page.

The page URL should look like this:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt######/

where ###### indicates a number.

Copy the ID number that appears after tt in the URL. The leading "tt" is not required, but the template will still work if it is included. The leading zeros in the number are not needed, but are recommended for Linksearch uniformity.

Add the following to the external links section of the article:

{{IMDb title | ###### | Film Name }}

or {{IMDb title | id= ###### | title= Film Name }}

where ###### is the number you've copied, and Film Name is the title of the movie or show.

(Optional) If you want to add an additional description to distinguish this film / show from another that may be on the same page with the same name, use the following text:

{{IMDb title | ####### | Title | Description }}

where ####### is the number you've copied, Title is the title of the movie or show, and Description is the description of the show, in parentheses.

(Optional) There is also the section parameter which can be set to awards to link to the Awards section of the site.


Example

{{IMDb title|6214468|The Russian Bride}} gives The Russian Bride at the Internet Movie Database
