#4488 closed Bug (wontfix)

Paused list shows paused and finished torrents

Description

I would like to request that in a future release the paused list only shows the paused torrents not paused+finished.

I built the transmission-trunk-r12890 for linux and it still shows both paused and finished under the paused list.

A simple patch to separate Paused and Finished for Qt, Gtk+, and Web clients. We don't have to suffer just because Mac people wants to put things into 4 piles.

works nice, I like it. Patch adds new filter plus clarify and describe the filter meanings.

bandit, are the finished torrents you're seeing also paused?

transmission-gtk's filter code for showing paused torrents, and for showing finished torrents, are currently unrelated to each other:

        case ACTIVITY_FILTER_PAUSED:
            return st->activity == TR_STATUS_STOPPED;

        case ACTIVITY_FILTER_FINISHED:
            return st->finished == TRUE;

A torrent cannot be finished without being paused. That finished filter will be a subset of the paused filters.

  • Resolution invalid deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened

Please look at the following example...
I have a total of 400 torrents
3 active
8 downloading
0 seeding
392 paused
326 finished
In my mind paused should = 66 neither started, active, or finished just PAUSED
Combining the finished and the paused, makes the finished tab seem redundant.
Going through 392 paused/finished torrents to change one from paused to finished or just start it again is a a real pain.

Even a way to sort the paused list to only show those not finished would at least be somewhat a fix.

There are a lot of filters that are useful that could be added. The current filters are correct; you just want a "paused-not-finished" filter. A solution could be to sort by progress, which would be closer to what you want.

Replying to livings124:

NO what I want is the freaking paused tab to show a paused torrents list not and finshed. In gtk-transmission it is either active,downloading,seeding,paused+finished, or finished.
THAT MAKES NO SENSE!! Why even have a paused list it should be renamed the paused+finished list to better state what it is.

It should be active,downloading,seeding,paused, OR finished. Alas that is not meant to be.

Relax, don't take the response so personally. Although I am basing this off the Mac client which does not have a finished filter.

comment:9 Changed 10 years ago by bandit

That does sound harsh.I apologize.
I wondered what client you used, and if each was different. I keep so many torrents in finished so that I don't re-download the same ones again.
Even if you sort by progress the paused torrents are still intermingled through out the list with the finished ones. Switching to compact view does make it a little faster but you still have to go through the whole list to find each of the paused torrents.
