Has anyone worked with thechive.com sites? Trying to get the proper settings or template so I can get the images from a link like https://i.thechive.com/halfassmonkeyboy

Appreciate any hints or help!
Thank you

One more request, if you have the time:

A template to handle tag searches on i.thechive.com. Example:
https://i.thechive.com/tag/sunset

Thank you in advance

Hmm. Doesn't look like it can be done. I can only get the first page of results, which is

https://i.thechive.com/rest/uploads?see ... tag=sunset

It can be generated using Custom Parsers from the page text of the original starting URL:

https://i.thechive.com/tag/sunset

But after that I need both "seed" and "tag" values and I do not see a way to generate such URL from the first page of results because it lists all tags for every submission and does not indicate which one was used to generate this page :( I would need to use both page URL and page text to generate the next URL and that's currently not possible. Custom Parsers work ONLY with the page text, they cannot use the page URL. This feature definitely must be added...
