Feature request: an option to (manually) reset a torrent instead of remove and re-add

Sometimes torrents get in "Error" state due to a removed file, a non-available file system, ... In these cases, transmission suggests to remove and re-add the torrent. The problem: If the torrent was added using a magnet link, I also lose the metadata. Additionally, I lose all settings I changed in ...

Re: Delay activating new seeding ratio

I also would like to vote for this request.

Making the changes effective on tab switch or dialog close would be the most intuitive behaviour to me.

Re: Successively file downloading feature

There already has been a similar request here: https://forum.transmissionbt.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=17239. And I personally think it's not a good idea to implement it, because torrents are a "cooperative community thing", and sequentially downloading files is more likely to harm the so called "torre...

Request: suppress writing to files that are already downloaded 100% and not corrupted

Hi, I'm using a inotifywait-based script that waits for files to finish downloading. As soon as a file is renamed from [something].part to [something], the file is made readonly (chmod 440) and a shasum is created. Most times, that's not a problem, but it looks like sometimes, transmission tries to ...

Re: Request: Add "move up/down/top/bottom" buttons to toolbar

OK, well, then I have to think again about switching from transmission-gtk to transmission-daemon. There is just one thing that held me back until now ... so far I could not find any transmission-daemon client that can rename files within the torrent. This is a feature of transmission-gtk that I use...

Re: transmission torrent won't reconnect to data folder

OK, that's really bad. I think by "restart" they mean "restart transmission" and that's what I always did before finding the workaround. And for me, the full restart worked 100%. The workaround I described just helped me to avoid the full restart. And for me, "Start Now" on the torrent works 95% of ...

Request: transmission-gtk: Use F2 for renaming files in the properties window

Hi, Nearly all programs I use that have a "rename" operation on items (File manager, JDownloader, ...) use F2 or two single clicks (select, wait, click again) for starting this operation. But transmission-gtk is an exception, using "space" or a a single-click to start renaming. You always need to ad...

Re: the problem with the "Paused" category

What makes it even worse is that torrents listed in "Finished" are not "Finished" any more after transmission restart. Instead the are in "Paused". At least in transmission-gtk/Linux.
This could indicate that "Finished" is handled as something special that can not be stored in the .torrent file.

Re: transmission torrent won't reconnect to data folder

Maybe the priority is not that high, because a simple workaround exists ?
BTW:
Does my workaround (see my psot right above yours) work for you ?

Re: Request: Add move up/down/top/bottom buttons to toolbar

Unfortunately, it does not work for me. First, I thought the reason could be that I have transmission-gtk running on a PC without monitor, keyboard and mouse, only controlled remotely via x11vnc. But now, I have installed transmission-gtk on a second computer with local monitor, keyboard and mouse. ...

Re: transmission torrent won't reconnect to data folder

I have stumbled on a workaround:

After you corrected the location, just click on "start now" in the torrent's context menu.

And BTW, transmission-gtk (on Linux) is also affected.

Request: An option to count inactive time "overall" instead of "per session"

Hi, I'm running transmission 24/7, only interrupted by rebooting the computer regularly due to system updates. Many of my torrents are quite old ones, and some of them took over a year to complete downloading. I want to give other people a chance to complete their torrents from me by setting the "st...

Re: Transmission keeps the file, even if it moved to another directory

I have a wild guess what could be going on, although I don't have detailed knowledge about your components (hard- and software) ... As far as I understand your first post, you configured the file move operation in CP and SR, but not in transmission, right ? Most probably, CP and SR do not tell trans...

Is there a remote UI for transmission-daemon that can rename files ?

Hi, Currently. I'm running transmission-gtk with the XFCE desktop on my Banana Pi. And transmission-gtk is the last remaining reason why there is a desktop at all. The Pi has no monitor and no keyboard connected, I'm doing everything via VNC. Now, I would like to switch to transmission-daemon in ord...
