Recipe request - Macleans Magazine

Hi All,

Newbie here and I have a question. Maclean Magazine is not downloading for me in Caliber and when I did a google search I found a recipe in the Caliber forums archives that someone had posted for Macleans Magazine (see below) but when I tried to use it to "Fetch News" in Caliber it doesn't work. Please help, how do I get the magazine downloaded into an e-book? It is a weekly magazine.

Thank you in advance!

@sexymax15: Thanks for posting several recipes.
A tip: It would be appreciated if you would put your recipes into code tags (use the hash button) and then surround the code tags with spoiler tags (use the button having an eye with a red X over it). The code tags preserve required Python formatting and the spoiler tags make the thread much easier to read.

It's not immediately obvious that Code tags are needed or that Spoiler tags are helpful, but when you've read a few hundred threads, or tried to answer questions about posted recipes that have lost all the Python-required indents, you will learn to appreciate the advantages of those tags. Thanks to all who use them!

I tried sexymax15's recipe. The table of contents shows all the articles but the links don't work.

I also updated Calibre to 0.8.22 (which has an improved Maclean news recipe). Still, the links in the table of contents don't work and also noticed that the articles were not actually downloaded.

Anyone else has this issue?
