Give it a shot, thank Lord Sedrik for the functionality.


Yes, we'll add the ability to add aliases to other pages as well (teams, concepts...etc). I'll try and get that done this afternoon.

Note that it doesn't search against "real names". We're gonna run a script to add the real name to the list of aliases so that it'll work on those too.


But for editing purposes know that ONLY additions to the alias field will add that record to search.

Search also takes about 10 minutes to update to the live box, so your alias additions won't work immediately.

Any chance aliases will be added to creators too?
There are a few that uses different names. Being able to add an alias might prevent dupe entrys getting added.

Yes, every "page" on comicvine will allow aliases. I'm running out early today, but I'll try and get it into the templates by next week.
