    I have a film that was originally released as a short film in film festival. Subsequently it had a full length DVD and Cinema general release. I would like to put the short version in with the full length version folder.

    Will the HT recognise the suffix -short after the main name? Or what is the best strategy. The original short version was released on Youtube under it's original Brazilian name. I plan to rename it to the English title.

    At the moment HT has found it OK under the Brazilian name and treated as a different movie without cast or crew details etc

    The protocol is under section 2 in the attached..

    So you could have:

    MovieName.(1#Full Version).ext
    MovieName.(2#Short Version).ext

    This shows two versions under the same poster.

    Thanks for the help but I noticed next to the way I did it first, just a simple 1 and 2 a question mark, upon inspection it showed how to do it - really good.

    Also, if two different files are identified as the same movie by the scraper but no suffixes are used, HT will still add the selection boxes, but they're just labelled "A" and "B"
