having trouble adding sites to download from the newest update of vuze.

i had to re-install my snow leopard OS on my mac book pro and since everything got deleted i had to reinstall vuze. when i downloaded and installed it only the vuze and mininova results would come up. i went to add/edit to add more but those two are the only ones available. i used to always download from kiskasstorrents and isohunt and ones i cant exactly remember but is there any way i can add these others on there? or do i have to re-download a different version of vuze?
thanks.

I'm going to quote bigfootballer7 here (search for his posts if you wish)

His previous posts have suggested the following:

Hi All,

I recently found this, as I had the exact same problem. Someone was kind enough to post this on another forum.

"Start Vuze, select File->Open->Torrent File... and select the 'Add URL button'

Enter

magnet:?xt=urn:btih:GKDZHHTCKP6R2XRNWYJLRQUYE4VPLEDU

in the box and hit OK.

This will add a download to Vuze that contains search templates - they are contained in files ending in ".vuze".

When it is complete navigate to the resulting files and either double click them to install or use the File->Open->Vuze File to do so."

I hope this helps.

I'm sorry, but I still can't figure out how to add different torrent sites to my Meta search

Did you do the following step?

File->Open->Vuze File

All I know is others have got those instructions to work which is why I post them verbatim. I don't actually use the inbuilt search which is why I don't know much about it.

I'm afraid I still can't solve this, despite following all the instructions. My firewall is off too, so it's not that. Do I need to re-start my machine?

Please help!

Hi,
I typed in the magnet info, and all i get in the downloads window is that the torrent is "queued". This never starts downloading. Any tips?

I have a decent list of torrent sites(11 so far) that Vuze downloads from currently, but I want to add a few more i.e.- clearbits, vodo. I haven't been able to find any search templates that include these. Can anyone help with this?
