There aren't any setting to change, really. What version of Tellico are you
using? ARe you doing "Update Entry" or adding from the "Search Internet"

Create a new Simple Text field, call it IMDB. Then create a URL field, call
it IMDB Link, and check the "Use dervied value". In the value template box,
enter "https://www.imdb.com/title/tt%{IMDB}" without the quote marks. That
should do what you want. Whenever you put an ID number in the IMDB field,
the URL is automatically updated.
