How To: Categorize Torrents by Tracker in Azureus
If you're like me, you probably have trouble remembering which torrents come from which tracker, and which torrents you need to pay extra special attention to because your ratio is getting too low. I just noticed a few days ago that there was a category column on Azureus, and I thought it would be really great if I could automatically categorize my torrents when I started downloading. Fortunately, someone already thought about that way before me and created Auto Categorizer. It's a pretty simple plugin. You can automate the process of categorizing torrents by filename and tracker URL.
Anyway, I'm doing this tutorial in Azureus Vuze 22.214.171.124 using the Classic Interface. I'm not 100% sure this will work in all versions, but it works in the latest version. If you don't want to read my tut, you can download the plugin here: Auto Categorizer
Step 1: Enable the Category column
In your downloads section, Right Click > Column Setup
Find Category and click Add. Click OK.
Do this for your uploads section as well.
Step 2: Download and Install Auto Categorizer
Go to Plugins > Installation Wizard... > By list from sourceforge.net
This will bring up a list of plugins you can install.
Check Auto Categorizer then hit Next and Finish.
Install the plugin.
Step 3: Setup Auto Categorizer
Go to Tools > Options > Plugins > AutoCategory
Make sure Autocat enabled is checked and Change already-categorized torrents is checked.
In Trigger, enter a tracker url. It doesn't have to be the entire url.
In Category, enter what you want that tracker to be called.
In Field, select Tracker URL
Click Add and Save.
And there you go. It should work. If it doesn't, um.. grrr?
If anyone has alternative methods, or if someone knows how to do this in uTorrent, please post in this thread, and I will link it here. I've never used uTorrent, so I'm not sure if it's super easy to do or if you can't do it at all.
