Error in the Fetch News

In the 'Fetch News', I came across an error message like this in the working progress 97% or 98%.

It's so long that I can't copy it here.

I wonder why its error message appears in the program.

I have the same problem. It seems to be a problem with decoding some characters in the newsfeed. For me it is usually the 0x9a character. An easy solution would be to set the unicode decoding errors to "replace"/"ignore" instead of "strict". The fetch process would just skip the problematic character. But that has to be changed somewhere in the code, which is beyond my skills/knowledge.

I'm afraid it's not that simple, which is why I haven't fixed it yet....it's on my TODO list when I get a block of time to look at it.

I've been having problems too, however I cannot bring up the list of jobs by clicking. I usually have no idea whats happening when fetching as it is anyway, however this makes things worse.

Open a terminal and type
Code:
feeds2lrf --dedug "Newsweek"
to see the output when fetching NEwsweek for example.

Is there a way to change the standard News recipes? It would be nice if the user can make some changes in the way the fetched output looks like. Could be also very nice to just copy an existing recipe and use/adapt it for another similar news source.

Yes, I read the menu. What I wanted to ask is if you can change the standard ones. Not write new ones from scratch, just change some parts of the fetching.

There's a link to the source code of the built-in recipes. Modify away.

Can I get help on this. I'm not sure if its been discussed (but I can't seem to find it anywhere here)...

I tried to fetch Google Reader but keep getting zero data from the fetch. The process complete in Calibre but it shows no content just the headings.

Thanks Kovidgoyal! Your program rocks!
