Delete posts not working after Dec. 17th

Hi Martin,

since the Tumblr killed NSFW on Dec. 17th, you can not delete your posts if your blog is marked as explicit. The reason is, that the archive page returns zero results. Do you think you can implement a small change and use posts page for scrapping? The URL of that page is: https://www.tumblr.com/blog/<blogname>

Or maybe this page is better:
https://www.tumblr.com/mega-editor/<blogname>

isn't there an option on the SETTINGS tab to use RSS instead? It will only give you the 20 most recent and probably will cache a bit, but maybe will update after deleting the recent posts?

There is, but it's not working on NSFW accounts, same as Archive.

Deleting through Mass Editor is probably the safest and fastest way how to delete the posts, as you can select up to 100 posts and delete them in one round.

Wow, that was a quick update, thank you :)

It's working now, however, I have noticed a small bug: the action now ignores the Max Search Result in the Scraping settings:

ah yes it will, I didn't add support for MAX SCRAPE RESULTS.

SCRAPE TAB
max results: (n)
custom search: my posts from megaeditor

this will save you a file of your posts
then DELETE FROM FILE

Could you please add support for it in the next update? Or is it too much work?
