Usage

1

post.delete(base_hostname = NA, id = NA, token = NA, consumer_key = NA, 
consumer_secret = NA)

Arguments

base_hostname

The standard or custom blog hostname. See Details.

id

The ID of the post to delete.

token

Represents the complete set of data needed for OAuth access: an app, an endpoint, cached credentials and parameters. See Details.

consumer_key

The consumer key provided by your application.

consumer_secret

The consumer secret provided by your application.

Details

Each blog has a unique hostname. The hostname can be standard or custom. Standard hostname: the blog short name + .tumblr.com. Custom hostname: Anything at all, as determined by a DNS CNAME entry.

The API uses three different levels of authentication, depending on the method. None: No authentication. Anybody can query the method. API key: Requires an API key. Use your OAuth Consumer Key as your api_key. OAuth: Requires a signed request that meets the OAuth 1.0a Protocol.

The API supports the OAuth 1.0a Protocol, accepting parameters via the Authorization header, with the HMAC-SHA1 signature method only.

Value

Returns 200: OK (successfully deleted) or an error code.
