I'd like to assign custom labels to torrents the way I did in µTorrent for example. Or any other way to categorize them. As far as I can tell, there must be Label plugin bundled with deluge, but does it really work? I don't see any way to assign labels. If not, are there other torrent clients able to do this?

Yes you can use the Label plugin to do this.

Enable the plugin by opening Preferences, navigating to the Plugins page and ticking the Label plugin:

Create a label (or modify it options) by right-clicking on the Labels section in the sidebar:

Assign a label to a torrent by right-clicking on the selected torrent(s) and then select your label from the sub-menu:

The Label plugin is included with Deluge but there is also a more powerful third party plugin LabelPlus with the following features:

  • Sublabels
  • Less restrictive label names
  • Ability to rename labels
  • Relative move completed paths
  • Auto-labeling based on torrent name or tracker
  • Limit torrent speed by label

I realized, I have to enable this plugin first in Preferences. Thanks a lot :) I believe it makes sense to add this information to your answer. – x-yuri Sep 26 '13 at 12:08
Also note that adding a label with spaces in the name seems to just not do anything. I realized after looking at the image above why my label was not being made. – d3vkit Feb 4 '15 at 5:41
