Exclude Seeding Torrents From

Is there any way to exclude seeding/completed torrents from the queue?

I'm using Transmission on a QNAP Nas, I usually access it via the Windows Transmission GUI, but I have access to the web interface too.

What I mean is, is there any way for the queue to only count downloading torrents and to completely disregard seeding/finished torrents? Other torrent clients do this and I find it much easier to manage the order of my downloads as I have 300+ seeding torrents.

Sorry, I wasn't very clear with my question. That was my bad.

Are you saying the seed queue doesn't work?

Code: Select all

seed-queue-enabled: Boolean (default = false) When true. Transmission will only seed seed-queue-size non-stalled torrents at once.
seed-queue-size: Number (default = 10) See seed-queue-enabled.

Nope. I'm saying that I want seeding/completed torrents to not be in the queue, so that the queue only consists of downloaded or to-be-downloaded torrents.

If that's not an option, it's fine.

I may not understand your request, but try setting this to false.

The summary window on the left lists "All Torrents", "Downloading", "Completed", etc. If you click on one of those it will only display the corresponding torrents. I.E. if you click on downloading that is all you will see.

Also, if you sort the torrents correctly then the older ones will be off the bottom of the screen and you can ignore them. I sort by date added as it keeps the newer, active, torrents at the top.

Yeah, I know how to navigate the UI. Thank you though!

Windows Transmission GUI
I don't think there is such an animal. Do you mean 'transmission-remote-gui', which is a third-party app?

Just to clarify are you trying to have Transmission not process the older torrents at all or to be processing them but not display them? Still not sure what you are trying to achieve.
