I don't know any surefire way to download the entire booru + child posts easily.

The most effective way would be to use Bulk Image Downloader, but it costs 25$ so you will either have to pay that or find a torrent of it. Either way, I do not know if it will make sure to include the child posts.

A free alternative is imgbrd-grabber. It can download most of the booru, but it requires many more steps, as you can only do a search for one tag at a time. However, you can do multiple searches, and batch download these. For example, you can do a search for Lori_Loud, press "get all" then do a search for Leni_Loud press get all, then do a search for Luna_Loud and press get all, and so on. Once you've done all the characters, you can go to the download page, press download, and it'll download all the images. It'll automatically avoid downloading duplicates (just in case the search for Lori and the search for Leni both turn up an image that has both of them in it.)


If you want to download a specific parent, like say a comic, you can put down "parent:XXXX" where XXXX is the id of the parent post, and you can bulk download that as well.

I recommend putting " %all% %md5%.%ext% " (without the quotation marks) into the name field of grabber. This will add all the tags to the images you download, which makes looking them up easier in your folder.

Ah ok. I'm not sure if it can grab child posts, but it's still a good way to grab a majority of booru content. I don't know if it can name posts like grabber can, but if it can, make sure to do that so it'll be easier to find images.
