assign/change category after download

Post by redfox314 »

I am an avid user of Sabnzbd+ but one feature would be extremely handy for me.
I frequently have this situation: "oh that dl should have been that category",  either because I forgot to set it or because I wasn't fast enough and the download was already complete.
Would it be possible to include a feature that allows you to change the category after download (and move the files accordingly)?

Once the post-processing is complete, SABnzbd doesn't touch the results anymore.
Especially not because a user's post processing script may have manipulated files.
You can change the category as long as the job is still in the queue.

Before i did this by editing the atrib file in the temp download folder. but with the new versions of sab this is not longer a clean text file to edit.

Why do you want do to that? What would be the point of changing it all the way when the download is finished and everything is processed?
