(somewhat cross-posted with the Format Conversion forum, but for good reason i think) Is this the tool I should use to convert a webpage with .html in it to .lrf? There was a fanfic that i wanted to read on my 505, and I just right clicked on a link to the page and saved as .html and then used calibre to convert to lrf. Unfortunately, the resulting file had improper margins (really large, not the way I've set calibre to convert) and even worse, it has page turns of 2-3 seconds as opposed to more like 0.5. I usually have to hit page turn an entire paragraph before I'm done to get the timing right, and it usually isn't quite right, which is frustrating..

But this tool seems to be for news sites. Will it work for just one big long .html webpage and if so, do I use calibre or some kind of cmd interface? Any tips would be appreciated. Or is the html file itself somehow problematic, such that I can't fix the long page turns without just copy and pasting it to .rtf or something?

Thank you, Kovid. Itching to test it out now, too bad I'll be at work for the next 12 hours or so today.. (projects, projects..)

I use Calibre GUI for Windows regularly to download feeds. It is wonderful software. Yesterday I decided to set up some batch files using the command line interface so that I could schedule downloads to be ready every morning.

The line in the batchfile looks like this:
"C:\Program Files\calibre\web2lrf" nytimes --username user --password pass

but when I opened the .lrf up in my 505, the file had the correct table of contents, but none of the navigation links at the top and bottom of each article. Is there some flag I need to set to have the navigation links added to the file? I couldn't find a mention of it in the web2lrf docs.

Thanks again Kovid, this software has added a lot of value to my Reader.

first of all, coming from a PDA WM6 world, I'm must admit I'm a complete newbie on this e-boook reader field, I have found myself almost completely lost after purchasing my prs505 today.

After updating to the latest firmware, I downloaded geekravers Web2Book, BBC news site was all I was able to get working. So I proceeded to Calibre.

I was very impressed with the commercial looking layout and everything looked straight forward. However, even with the present recipes, for example Wired, I get failed downloads as pasted below:

Code:

Any Idea what could be causing this? Additionally, Slashdot RSS feeds turn out to be 99% comments using http://rss.slashdot.org/Slashdot/slashdot as feed. any help would be appreciated.

So what does the New York Times actually look like on the reader? How's it presented?
