#4926 closed Enhancement (wontfix)

Better Magnet Addition UI

Reported by: funkstar Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Transmission Version: 2.52
Severity: Normal Keywords: magnet


Currently when adding a magnet link the UI is pretty basic, only asking for name modification.

I'd like to see the ability to customize, and in my case, completely remove the trackers, before starting the download. Currently the only way to do it is to copy & paste magnet links and manually remove the trackers from them, very annoying.

This is a great feature I miss from uTorrent and hope you folks can implement it!

There's only so much we can put in an info window without adding every single option. I see the use case for this, but I don't think enough people would use it for it to be useful.

Don't take this the wrong way. But, you speak as if you have many options and you feel you don't want to bloat the menu.

This would be understandable if you had several options, but at the moment, you have no options at all. (Unless you count the ability to edit the torrent name as an option, something I'd wager would be used even less than tracker customization).

I don't see the issue in having the same frame you have now for editing trackers, added to the magnet addition UI, that way trackers can be removed before starting it.
