Hey Freddy

How TC adds Genre ? and if anything has changed in recent updates ?

for example in the series:

Star Wars The Bad Batch
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt12708542/
early added
Genre: Animation | Action | Adventure | Drama | Fantasy | Sci-Fi

and now it gives
Genre: Animation | Action | Adventure

Evil
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9055008/
early added
Genre: Crime | Drama | Horror | Mystery | Thriller

and now it gives
Genre: Crime | Drama | Horror

Liseys Story
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3319460/
early added
Genre: Drama | Horror | Mystery | Thriller

and now it gives
Genre: Drama | Horror | Mystery

I just need the full Genre of imdb

Take care

Nothing was changed at themaCreator.

You can literally see the genres in IMDB below the cover. They are correct what they show in IMDB.

All three examples only has 3 genres in IMDB now. They are all fetched correctly (that's literally the only genres IMDB has).

Looks like IMDB made some changes.

Report to IMDB.

under the cover on IMDB gives the most 3 genres but more genres is given below

Image

and, for example, in other series, TC gives more than 3 genres

Batwoman
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8712204/
Genre: Action | Adventure | Crime | Drama | Sci-Fi

Van Helsing
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5197820/
Genre: Action | Drama | Fantasy | Horror

in the earlier examples, I just noticed that it currently only lists 3 genres and earlier TC was giving more than 3

that's why I thought maybe there were some changes to the TC

They probably made changes how they API returns the genres as well. All the genres are exactly as they give them. I have no control over that.

You can enable to "Prefer TMDB information" in "TEMPLATES" -> "Video" -> "Settings" -> "IMDB / TMDB".

TMDB always give all genres which they have.
