#1072 closed defect (fixed)

Add magnet link should auto-start

Reported by: zzz Owned by: dg
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.9.9
Component: apps/i2psnark Version:
Keywords: Cc: killyourtv
Parent Tickets: Sensitive: no


Adding a standard torrent link in the 'add torrent' box auto-starts it but adding a magnet link doesn't (only if auto-start is disabled?). We should be consistent and auto-start added magnet links too, to save the user an extra click. No reason to have a stopped magnet sitting there after adding it.

<dg> zzz: #1072 does this work/acceptable: http://pastethis.i2p/show/OBPpqhstYNBbTd1f16Vn/
<zzz> dg re: 1072, yes, that looks right, but I'm thinking the premise in 1072 is wrong. Adding a torrent in the UI when auto start is off does not start the torrent.
<zzz> So I don't know whether to change regular torrents too, or leave it all alone. What do you think?
<dg> is it worth putting time into? if we merge this, we at least give what users expect and we can forget about it for a while at least
<zzz> should adding a torrent in the UI auto start or not?
<dg> for me, 'auto start' meant 'start Snark when I2P does', not 'Start torrents when I add them'. So, I think it's alright. —— yes
<zzz> then can you change it for regular torrents too?
<dg> okay
<zzz> ok, I will paste all this into the ticket and assign it to you
