#5207 closed Enhancement (fixed)

Simplify GTK+ client's category filter to match Qt and Web clients

Reported by: jordan Owned by: jordan
Priority: Normal Milestone: 2.80
Component: GTK+ Client Version: 2.75
Severity: Normal Keywords:


The public/private and priority filters don't seem to be used very often, and people have commented on the category filter being overcomplicated.

Let's remove the public/private and priority filters s.t. the category filter acts as simple tracker filter, as it does in the Qt and Web clients.

Could you revert this change. I use to have many torrents(300+) from the same tracker. Right now the only way to manage this mess is to use priorities. Or could you introduce torrent groups with filtering option. Because of this commit I have to use version 2.77.

I think grouping might be a better way to do this; that way we wouldn't regress on the filter being too complicated.

Hmm, I have about 100 torrents and after this "simplification" my life also got considerably harder since now sorting about 100+ torrents turned into daunting task. I would rather prefer other clients to be uplifted in terms of sorting features for the very same reason. While I like transmission for being light, it one of few cases where simplification causes troubles in usual day to day operations.
