New to Recipes

I am new to the entire concept of Recipes in Calibre so please bear with me if I am asking the wrong questions.

I have added custom Recipes for several of my favorite news feeds with no problems, but I cannot seem to understand how to add a feed that requires a username and a password?

There appears to be a number of sources for custom templates for recipes but I have not yet figured out how to use them. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Cheers,

Robert Porter

Thank you for the link, I have actually gone through that page and what I need does not appear to be shown. The feeds I am trying to access are RSS Secured feeds. They are not web sites with a login page, nor are they article based.

My standalone newsreader is Feed Demon and it detects the fact that the feed is secured and prompts for a username password. The recipes I can see all seem to assume there is some dedicated login page. My feeds expect the username password passed in as part of the standard RSS header request.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'd scrape the RSS feed page with parse_index to get the articles. To get the RSS feed page, add whatever username password headers it wants with Mechanize.
