Hmm, it looks like sherdog have changed their search method. How would one go about to find event id's now?

Samsung ES7005 55" led tv - Denon AVR-3313 - NAD C275BEE - B&W DM683 - B&W HTM61 - B&W 686
Asus EB1501P ION2 - OCZ Vertex 2 64gb ssd - Built in IR Receiver
And a Logitech Harmony Touch to control it all. http://www.OpenELEC.tv

Yes, but you cannot filter to events and whatever anymore. Which makes it utterly useless.

118 matches.. hehe

Sorry, I meant the "Fight Finder" search box on the right rather than the general search, it still shows events there.

Anyway, I've gotten fed up wityh trying to scrape sherdog and it's limitations, so I've bought a domain and my plan is to make an open database for fight stats/metadata (e.g. TVDB/TMDB for fights). I'll keep you posted as I make progress.

cool! let me guess mmadb.com?! Big Grin
really like this idea of an open DB. will be quite a bit of work to cultivate though. hope it works out!
maybe we can somehow import sherdogs already existing DB and build from there on...if that is legal?

something like that (metafight.com actually but there's nothing there yet) Wink yeah it'll be difficult to fill the database at first but i think it'll be worth it in the end to have an open site/api we can use for free. It'd be really simple for me to scrape all this data from sherdog but i really don't know if it's allowed.

AFAIK most of this data is public record as the results of fights have to be reported by the athletic commission. But i'm still not sure i'd be allowed to dump all of sherdog. We might have to start from scratch

Still nothing paddycarey, I can't find any way to get the id's anymore. So either I am stupid or it's not possible anymore.

use the search box in the sidebar at the right, just type the name of the event and it'll pop up below the search box

The easiest way that I've found to do it is to do a Google search that looks like:
  • Sherdog event ufc 144
The first result is usually the specific event page:
  • http://www.sherdog.com/events/UFC-144-Edgar-vs-Henderson-18347
And the event ID is set of digits at the very end of the URL
  • 18347

Pretty new to this thing, sorry for the incoming dumb question. Having a hell of a time trying to get this add-on started. Upgraded to Eden RC2 and still getting 'script failed' errors, then tried to uninstall/reinstall the plugin and now getting a 'dependencies not met' error.

Could someone help me out with telling me what i have to do to get this started?

Just to let everyone know I haven't been ignoring the plugin, real life (and other addons) just got in the way for a while but i've been working on a better scraping interface, it's just going to take a lot longer than I originally anticipated.

I can whip up something temporary pretty quickly to allow for better artwork scraping but the grand plan is to turn metafight.com into a sort of tvdb/tmdb for fights. If there's anyone here with some django/python/html/javascript experience that wants to help then I'd be very grateful for any assistance.

I hope to have some sort of update for you all at some point in the next week.

I'm using the XBMC Eden PVR version.
