UI Extras

Speed Popup List

  • Override automatic speed popup list allows you to define the lists of speeds that are displayed when right-clicking the corresponding item in the status bar on the main window. If left unchecked, BitTorrent automatically generates the list in context, based on the current limit.
    • Upload speed list defines the upload speed list. -1 adds a separator to the list. 0 means Unlimited. Any other positive value is interpreted normally (as that value). Each value must be separated with a comma. The values are interpreted in KiB/s, so please enter them as such.
    • Download speed list defines the download speed list. -1 adds a separator to the list. 0 means Unlimited. Any other positive value is interpreted normally (as that value). Each value must be separated with a comma. The values are interpreted in KiB/s, so please enter them as such.

Persistent Labels

  • The field here allows you to specify permanent labels that remain regardless of the number of torrent jobs there are actually using that label. Multiple persistent labels may be entered, but must be separated with a | (vertical pipe). Note that persistent labels are given higher priority than normal labels in the category list, and so, are displayed above their normal counterparts.

Search Engines

  • This edit control allows you to edit the list of search engines that BitTorrent can use when using the built-in torrent search facility. One search engine may be entered per line, and must be entered as follows (where ?search= is arbitrary and depends on the search engine being used):
    Name|http://domain/path?search=
  • If found in the URL, BitTorrent will replace the following tokens as described:
    • %s is replaced with the entered search query. If this is not found in the search URL, then the query will be appended to the end of the URL instead.
    • %v is replaced with the client user agent ID.
  • In order to add custom search engines to the list on your own, you should have some basic understanding of HTML and how HTTP GET works. The topics themselves are outside the scope of this manual. The alternative would be to check whether your favorite search engine serves .btsearch files that BitTorrent can use to automatically add the search engine to the list.
  • Blank lines are displayed as separators in the search engine menu.
  • If you leave the entire field blank, the search widgets in the toolbar will be hidden from view.
