  • (2023-02-10) Алексей Семенов: There is no "Add torrent" button. So you can add new torrent only with a "magnet-link". In fact: this is only monitoring. Cause If you want add torrent you must use web-UI Transmission. P.S. Also need option "Delete only torrent / Delete torrent & downloaded files" Фактически: это только мониторинг того, как у вас скачиваются файлы, добавленные через нормальный web-интерфейс Transmission'а. Т.е. добавить торрент напрямую из этого расширения (без захода в web-интерфейс Transmission'а) вы можете только с помощью magnet-ссылки. А вот вручную добавить уже скачанный торрент-файл нельзя: нет отдельной кнопки "Add torrent". P.S. Сделает нормальное добавление торрентов - будет 3-4 звезды. Добавить опцию "Удалить торрент или Торрент и скачанные файлы" будет все 5.

  • (2019-07-05) Lyle Hanson: Having to right-click magnet links and select "send to Transmission" is a dealbreaker when other extensions let me just click the link.
  • (2019-05-16) Jokin Astobiza: Muy bueno! Lo utilizo para acceder desde el trabajo o portátil para acceder al NAS de mi casa sin ningún problema. Configuré mi DynDNS, usuario y contraseña de Transmission, y funcionando desde el primer momento. Recomendable! Una pena que no se desarrolle más... La página del plugin debería indicar claramente que solo es el frontend de Transmission, que debe estar previamente instalado configurado

  • (2023-08-23, v:1.0.0) Philip Terry: No filename or metainfo specified error
    When I click on a torrent link I get an error of No Filename or Meta Info specified. Is there a config issue or am I doing something wrong?
  • (2023-02-19, v:1.0.0) Rami Kattan: Latest Transmission v4, torrent are added in "pause" state
    After I updated to Transmission v4.0.0 new torrent magnets added with the right click are added in the pause state, any idea how to fix?
  • (2022-09-13, v:1.0.0) Ger Senden: Using a URL instead of an IP adress
    TLDR; dynamic IP adresses are solved with dynamic DNS. The extension cannot deal with URL's, only IP adresses. Right now the extension only allows IP adresses. This is fine if you want to use it locally, but if you want to expose transmission to the outside world, it would be very nice to use an address. When you are home hosting transmission you have to deal with dynamic IP adresses. The way to do that is with a dynamic DNS service. Thank you in advance!
  • (2021-05-13, v:1.0.0) alex cos: local host url
    what do i type in for localhost for transmission
  • (2021-03-09, v:1.0.0) Joseph Botosh: The red 0/0 numbers are annoying
    The little red box showing the number of torrents is distracting. It is red, so it attracts attention. Either make it another color, or add option to not display it at all.
  • (2020-04-05, v:1.0.0) Mikel Davis: Can't get it to work with torrents
    ....Can't get it to work with torrents
  • (2020-01-29, v:1.0.0) Mike Cunningham: Doesn't work with "site access" restricted settings
    It seems that if you set "site access" to either "on click" or "on specific sites" then the extension won't start properly even when clicked or on the listed sites.
  • (2019-02-14, v:1.0.0) Anderson Santos: Https
    Hello, Could you please update this extension to support https? You only have to update the permissions in the manifest with "https://*/". Thanks.
  • (2018-11-05, v:1.0.0) Van Nguyen: Can't send .torrent file
