    • search is slow

      Also, posting under a different category so it reaches the right people, sometimes the searching page gets stuck for a few moments when you type the first few letters of your search. Maybe it's just for me, I use google chrome on windows 8.1

      • misisng

        you've said that you import your movies from tmdb but Hedwig and the Angry Inch (https://www.themoviedb.org/movie/13403-hedwig-and-the-angry-inch) and When Harry Met Sally (https://www.themoviedb.org/movie/13403-hedwig-and-the-angry-inch) don't show up in the search.

        Just pointing this out so you can add it and maybe check why they weren't her in the first place :)
        Nice website!

        • "SEE ALL" on Plan to Watch jumps to Anime

          on the dashboard, the [SEE ALL] button jumps to:

          https://simkl.com/anime/all/plan-to-watch/all-years/<userID>

          I assume it should go to my entire watch list that includes TV, anime, and movies.

            When you’ll have more plan to watch items in your library, you will have separate lines of plan to watch for movies, anime and movies with appropriate links to separate lists.

                • Multiple episodes selection

                  Being able to select multiple episodes — or a full season — and then set them to watched/etc. For now we can only do this for a whole series or one by one, that's not very handy.

                                • Missing shows in My Calendar and Today Pages

                                  Hello,
                                  I have joined recently and it looks like among similar type of web sites Simkl is the best suited to my taste.
                                  I don't know if it is better to open a new post or continue from the previous completed bug. I chose to open a new post, I hope it is OK. I have some shows missing from Today and My calendar pages. Mostly new shows.

                                  Dr. Ken is missing from My Calendar
                                  The Simpsons, Crossing Lines is missing from Today Page
                                  New shows The Last Kingdom,Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is missing in Today Page.

                                  • Series status

                                    Hello,
                                    where do you get the TV series status from?
                                    For example Lucifer (https://simkl.com/tv/497502/lucifer) is marked as ended, even though it didn't started yet.
                                    The TVDB shows it as continuing.
                                    How can I help to fix it?
                                    Thanks

                                      The TV show The Knick started back up (Season 2) but the page for it still say's that the series ended, so it's not popping up on my list of shows to watch!
