Request: Standard-Freeholder (cornwall edition)

I am trying to create my own feed from the following site:
http://eedition.standard-freeholder....6255&type=full

I used calibre the basic method cause let's face it that's all I know about this recipe creating thing. Unfortunately, my culinary skills have followed me to this also :-)
Anyway, all I get is the table of contents.

What am I doing wrong? I really do not want a fancy one. Pictures would be nice and having the sections separated would be nice also but I'll take what I can get.

I am able to go to this site and click on the various links without registering.

Can this particular rss feed even work?

Your time in this is much apppreciated,
Sylvie

I suspect you would be better starting with the standard site rather than the e-edition:
http://www.standard-freeholder.com/rss/

Hey I figured out how to get some of it by adding a couple of lines:

class AdvancedUserRecipe1304536828(BasicNewsRecipe):
title = u'TSF Cornwall'
oldest_article = 1
max_articles_per_feed = 100
remove_javascript = False
use_embedded_content = True

feeds = [(u'daily', u'http://eedition.standard-freeholder.com/epaper/services/rss.ashx?cid=6255&type=full')]

but it looks god aweful and it's still not a complete listing...

I did it!!!

The e-edition was a bust.

The print version did not work for me as it would only show the first page on my K3 but looked fine in calibre. So I abandoned that.

So I had to figure out how to remove all that extra garbage at the top and bottom. The keep only tags worked and now I have all my feeds without added garbage.

class AdvancedUserRecipe1304600593(BasicNewsRecipe):
title = u'Cornwall SF'
oldest_article = 2
max_articles_per_feed = 100
no_stylesheets = True
keep_only_tags = [dict(id=['ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_pMainContent'])]

feeds = [(u'daily', u'http://www.standard-freeholder.com/rss/')]

yeah for me! Thanks so much for the tip!
