Can anyone tell me why Calibre works on 4.80 like a charm and when I updated to 4.83
I am able to get the main page but cannot fetch news as nothing happens when I try for specific newspapers or periodicals that worked on the 4.80 edition?
Also, is it possible to get back versions on the Calibre website such as 4.80. At least if one has a working edition of the Calibre, and then tries to update to a new edition and it does not work, they can always go back to the edition that works..

Thanks in advance for any assistance.. I love the program and have used it every day and now I am stuck without and periodicals to read..

I dont keep old versions, its too much work for me to maintain them. When you say nothing happens, what do you mean? Does the hourglass not start spinning?

click on the hourglass and then double click on the job and post the log here (wait for at least 10 minutes after starting the download before doing this to ensure that the process is really hung).

Hmm start a command prompt (press windows key + r and type cmd.exe). AT the command prompt type:
Code:
feeds2lrf --verbose Newsweek
What do you see?

Try again with two dashes ('--' vs. '-') before the 'verbose'. So exactly like:

Code:
feeds2lrf --verbose Newsweek

Looks like the new proxy detection code is failing on your machine. Do you have a proxy setup needed to access the internet from your machine?

I am afraid I am not that proficient in the running of my computer and have no idea what you are referring to...

Sorry...

Is your internet connection a direct connection to the web or is it via a proxy?
