Hi,
In the latest version of SP Movie DB actors and directors isn't required. So, now you can insert items without it. But in this case you may need to do this: https://www.joomshaper.com/forums/error-while-placing-fimes-in-highlight-in-sp-moview#reply-149043

Hi,
it request component code customization, sorry but it's beyond support. Contact with PHP developer.

I only need to know which files to edit. I am pretty sure that is something you can provide. Thank you!

But select field "Director(s)" and "Actors" you do not have to fill to add new movie.
So they are not mandatory.

More info you will find in that file:
administrator\components\com_spmoviedb\views\movie\tmpl\form.form.xml

have fun with customization.

Thank you! I understand your point. The problem is, if I add a movie without Director and Actor, and choose it as a Featured movie, my website gets broken (error 1064). If it is not a featured movie, then all is well. Is this still a customization issue? or a bug?

Hard to say. I am not PHP developer.
Maybe you should add default value for those 2 fields. And just hide those field from front-end.

I edited the xml file but it has no effect. How will I hide those field in the front end, when the data is in the module? Will it prevent the Error 1064 when movie is Featured? This is not a customization issue. This is a bug in the slider component. The movie is doing ok as a recommended movie link. And the Directors and Actors field are not shown. Again it is only when the movie is featured that the website gets broken. Please help!

Thank you Paul! Would look forward to your developer's feedback. Until then, please do not mark this issue resolved. There are several posts regarding this issue and the common answer was either to get the Admin log-in details or the component code customization, sorry but it's beyond support excuse. It would be beneficial for everyone concerned (customer and your company) if the solution is posted in this forum. Again, thank you in advance for your help!

Hi,
I saw currently actors and director field isn't required field. You can skip it if you want. if you leave it blank then it won't show in the frontend. http://prntscr.com/hirgo8

Hello Rifat,

If I leave it blank, and I chose the Featured option so it would be in the carousel/slider, my website gets broken and shows only the Error 1064 message. I have sent you a log-in detail, and you can try this yourself. Thanks!

I can understand the stress level here. However that field also important to relate between celebrities and movies. If i can suggest, we can create a new Director profile name as "n/a", and also Actor/Actress name as "n/a" and select those when feel lazy to create new profile to relate with the Movie....

Thank you, it worked perfectly.
Then I encountered a problem when reordering movies in the backend (1054 Unknown Column 'Status' In 'Order Clause') and solved with this https://www.joomshaper.com/forums/error-order-administrator

Those two problems were solved.
I have a new issue now, but it's not related to this post. The module for trailers and videos is not creating the thumbs but I understand it does not belong to this thread so I will be opening a new post as soon as possible.
Thanks for asking.

Hi, when is the upcoming update? web visitor does not care about actor /director.
It is good if you can make it able to insert subtitle file, will increase your sales of this template. Your competitor can do insert subtitle file into the movie but not user friendly and the template is not nice as moview. Thans

Sorry not soon, so I suggest hiring a freelancer (php developer) if you're in hurry.
