    36== What blocklist does Transmission Use? ==
    47
    5 Transmission can use any [http://www.bluetack.co.uk/ bluetack]-formatted blocklist.
     8The Transmission Project does not evaluate or endorse any specific blocklists.  If you do not know what blocklist to use, you might [href="http://www.google.com/search?q=blocklist+url" read about some third-party blocklists] and evaluate them on your own.
    69
    7 When you press the `Update Blocklist' button in the Transmission, a new copy of the bluetack level1 blocklist is downloaded from a [http://update.transmissionbt.com/level1.gz Transmission mirror] that's updated twice daily.
     10If "Enable automatic updates" is enabled, Transmission will refresh your blocklist each week.

     12When you press the `Update Blocklist' button, Transmission will download a new copy of your blocklist.

    20 Since transmission-daemon doesn't have an "update blocklist" button, its users have two options.
    21 They can either copy blocklists from transmission's directory to transmission-daemon's directory,
    22 or [http://update.transmissionbt.com/level1.gz download the level1 blocklist by hand], uncompress it, and place the uncompressed file in the daemon's {{{blocklists}}} folder.
    23 In both cases, you'll need to edit the daemon's [wiki:ConfigFiles settings.json file] to enable the "blocklist-enabled" setting.
     25transmission-daemon doesn't have an "update blocklist" button, so its users have two options.
     26They can either copy blocklists from transmission-gtk's directory to transmission-daemon's directory,
     27or they can download a blocklist by hand, uncompress it, and place it in the daemon's {{{blocklists}}} folder.
     28In both cases, the daemon's [wiki:ConfigFiles settings.json file] will need to be edited to set "blocklist-enabled" to "true".
