How-to: Add a Watch List item to your Watch List

To add a Watch List item to your Watch List, simply click on the "New Watch List Item", enter the text/title/show you are looking for in the "Name:" text box and click the "Add Watch List Item" button


How-to: Restrict a Watch List item to a certain Feed

You can restrict a Watch List item to only search for and display files from a specific feed. This can be done by changing the "Feed:" combo box when initially setting up the Watch List Item and clicking "Add Watch List Item". It can also be done with any existing Watch List items by selecting the item in the Watch List TreeView, changing the "Feed:" combo box and clicking the "Apply Changes" button.


How-to: Display the Entire Contents of a Feed

You may wish to create a Watch List Item to list every item found in a specific feed. To do this, create a new Watch List Item as usual. Select the feed you want in the "Feed:" combo box and check the box beside "List Every File in Feed". By checking this box you are telling Videora to ignore the name of the Watch List item and simply display the contents of the specified feed.


How-to: Restrict a Watch List item to match Option Box content

You can restrict a Watch List item to only search for and display files that match the content of one of the Option Boxes. This can be done by selecting which option box item you want from their respective combo boxes and clicking the "Apply Changes" button (See Customize Guide for more details on Option Boxes).


How-to: Display Files found by your Watch List item

To display what files Videora has found that are related to your Watch List item, click on the plus icon to the left of the Watch List item name (as seen in the red box in the following image). If there is no plus or minus icon beside the name that means that Videora has not found any related files yet. As long as the Watch List item exists, Videora will keep searching the feeds you are subscribed to and display any related video it finds.


How-to: Download Files found by your Watch List item

To download a file that was found by your Watch List item, simply expand the Watch List item and double click the filename. The file will start downloading in the Downloads section of Videora. If you are downloading a *.torrent file, Videora will automatically start downloading the actual using your Videora supported BitTorrent client. If an error occurs while attempting to download a file, Videora will indicate the error in the Downloads section.


How-to: Delete a Watch List item

Simply select the Watch List item you want to delete and click the "Delete Watch List Item" button.


How-to: Add a Watch List item with Boolean Operators

Videora supports the use of the following boolean operators in the "Name:" text box: AND, OR and NOT. While the ANDs and ORs can be used in any combination of each other, however, you can only have one NOT in your Watch List item "Name:". Also, all boolean operators MUST be in capital letters and must have leading and trailing spaces before the word (i.e. " AND ", " OR ", " NOT"). When using multiple different operators, nest your AND and OR statements in brackets. Examples of such Wish List items can be seen below.
