While i see the direction is good, adding episodes is more work.

Wishlist for adding episodes:

-Autogenerated episode number (like before)
-"Save and add Another button" . I dont want to click save, then go back and add episode. Save us some steps.
- Get rid of so much vertical scrolling. Consolidate stuff side by side where possible. Episode name, number, airdate, and description should be at the very top... and add another save button at the top so i dont have to scroll down to the bottom to find it.

Yes, please implement all of this because it is so much more work now.

Side note: I do like how it works on mobile for the most part. It looks good and works well on my iPhone X. I never liked adding episodes on my phone before.

Awesome to see that you listen to the users/editors :) Big thanks for that!

Next suggestion from me - Consider making a "Classic Layout"-version of the site, that editors can choose to use.
I know that its much harder to implement, than it sounds, but I am sure it would be a big hit amongst the editors :)

I really would love to see the save & add another button. The one good thing about the previous iteration was being able to quickly add multiple episodes then edit the details.

FYI the autogenerated episode number has been added.

I noticed that if I enter a FirstAired date in the old format, such as 2018-05-18, the date is silently discarded instead of being accepted/converted (or at least warned about). It would be nice if these dates were still allowed.

I know there were plans to make the date format customisable per-user, and it's certainly something I'd like to see sooner than later. :)

It was really nice to be able to have all of your series on the home page and just click a link without having to search.


The feature is now back on. You can add series as favorite on the series' pages, and you can find all your personal favorites in the member dashboard under your pseudo on the top right of the website.

I’ve just added a special episode but I couldn’t add the “Airs before episode” date.
