#958 closed feature-request (Fixed)

Search by name in torrent list

Reported by: civmaniac@… Owned by: andar
Priority: minor Milestone: 2.0.0
Component: GTK UI Version:
Keywords: search Cc: spinup@…, annanfay@…, zamabe@…, tschunschi@…


It would be quite handy to have a capability to search torrent list by name. I see several approaches:

  • It could be a text entry in toolbar (like search in firefox).

  • Search bar with text entry invoked on Ctrl+F

  • Use default treeview search popup summoned by Ctrl+F

Vote for this feature. It can be even simplier, like in file manager - if user hit letter on keyboard selection moves to first torrent starting with that letter. Additional letters then can refine search and selection moves accordingly.

Ctrl + F pops up a "search" box. However, it only searches from the start of the torrent name.

I find this a irritating because many of my torrents have names like: "[Commie] 「K」 - 01 [A231ED03].mkv"

Not only do I normally not remember the subbing group, of which there are sometimes multiple, I also can't normally type 「 and 」 characters into the search. Currently I have 142 torrent files loaded into Deluge so a real quick search feature would be very useful.

At least one other person has been confused by the current front-only-search:

"[...]ctrl+f causes the little box to show up underneath the sidebar. typing something and subsequently pressing enter does nothing (as far as i can tell)[...]" - dwagonfwy

This newer search will only be in the next major release (1.4) so it is not in 1.3 which still only has the simple search that you describe.
