Answers to some frequently asked questions that will hopefully help you get Plex Requests up and running smoothly!
After some thought, and with the help of @jeradin, users now require authentication to make requests. They just need their username so no passwords are required for ease of entry. A local token is also saved for future visits. Administrators can see who has submitted each requests, while users are not shown this information.
No, authentication is now off by default. Users are still asked to enter their Plex.tv username but it does not check them against your friends or managed users, merely shows you who is requesting content.
Yes! By default requests do not require approval. This setting can be turned on in the admin page. Any requests require your approval, which can be done from the requests page.
Requests aren't removed anymore. You have sort and filtering options, and an infinite scrolling list of requests.
We have recently switched to using TheMovieDB API for our search results. It has great support for both Movies & TV series and handles foreign language titles great as well. If you experience any issues with the search results, please let me know!
Your deployment options are limited to platforms that Meteor supports, so the short answer is no. However, if you’re so inclined, and your platform supports Node.js and MongoDB, you should be able to get it running using demeteorizer.
