Can OB download all images on a tumblr blog?

For example, the following Tumblr blog on Tigers:

http://everythingtigers.tumblr.com/archive

I want it to download all images linked on above page. But apparently it is downloading only a few.

I set it up for Level-1. The page and all images linked on it.

Its very simple. Why isn't it downloading them?

Thanks for advice.

Please try to set Level=10 to get all archive pages. Does this help?

Thank you for replying.

Never mind, I have found an app which can extract each individual image URL from all the pages of a tumblr blog and combine them into a text file. So now I just have to tell OB to download these links only (Level-0).

However I am facing some problems again as below :

1) In the above case, can we tell OB not to download certain URLs included in this list by using URL filters?

For example, there are following links which have been pasted into OB for direct download (Level-0) :

http://b.imagehost.org/0971/jump_to_top_arrow.png

http://31.media.tumblr.com/be1a082e05f5ee5819c59719a3eb4726/tumblr_mj4q18JbxL1qa9omho1_r1_500.jpg
http://31.media.tumblr.com/7d80ce0e7eb1e01f1c63a66f9a18eb18/tumblr_mqxp1mN4vc1qflg7co1_250.jpg

I want to tell OB not to download the 1st three files (these are just button images in webpages). So I try to use URL Filters in OB for Server URLs starting from :

http://static.tumblr.com.
http://b.imagehost.org.

However, the URLs filters are not working and OB tries to download all the files.


2) I have also tried with file keywords exclusions (like excluding filename 'jump_to_top_arrow.png') but it is also not working. (Can we just define exclusions or must we define inclusions also?).

3) I also tried to apply Limits, like time limit to stop downloading if it exceeds certain time but no success. Is it for an individual file or for the whole project?

4- For very large number of links in a text file (.txt or .doc), can we 'Import' that file directly into OB through some command rather than copying and pasting thousands of links into its pane?

Thank you for your help.

Actually, the logic here is to download all links from the URLs field without applying any filter. If a user specified some URL, it will be surely downloaded.

Regarding text files - you may use a URL Macro in the URLs field to load it:

{:file=c:\dir\file.txt}

Please place 1 URL per line.
