Episode Details: AiredAfter and AiredBefore fields

Postby NYSNDGUY » Wed May 16, 2018 7:26 pm

I just went to confirm that S00E01 of the History Channel series "SIX" (ID 311809) was set correctly as aired after S01. Where those fields should there is a single line which reads "AirsAfter_Season, AirsBefore_Season, AirsBefore_Episode".

This is in the API?
I'm not seeing those fields on the actual site.

Sorry for the late response, my notifications where off.

These fields are specific to the 'Add' & 'Edit Episode' pages for eps in a 'Specials' seasons only, not for regular season episodes. It was how TVDB knew when to list a special between two regular eps in a season view, or say if a preseason recap episode should appear as an epilogue in the season list for the season it recaps or as a prologue to the season it proceeds. Now it seems like they are gone because the tags were never defined as fields in the new version of the site, and the page renders with the tags as plain text instead. See example below.

Special Numbering
If this episode is a special, it should be added to the specials season and these fields should be filled out.
AirsAfter_Season, AirsBefore_Season, AirsBefore_Episode


This section appears between the 'Episode Numbering' and 'General Information' sections of the page.

This was the next question I was going to ask about, but @NYSNDGUY beat me to it

On the old site it looked like this...

Those fields aren’t back on the new site yet.

I think I get what they're saying though, IIRC that text is still on the relevant edit pages.

Yes exactly, but not the actual fields.

Just following up to see if this is something that will be addressed, or if we should all just move on to other things.

It's going to be addressed, but we don't have a set date/time on it at this point, so I'd move on for the time being.

Personally, I'd like to see a set Milestone / ETA chart, but given the nature of this project, it's fast-and-loose at best.
