FT Life & Arts

Can the issue with Life & Arts not be circumvented by reading the rss feeds on http://www.ft.com/intl/rss? The LA Times recipe reads rss feeds. Maybe a modification of that recipe would generate a complete FT?

I tried this but am very limited in my programming experience and so ran into an calibre, version 0.9.32
ERROR: Invalid input: <p>Could not create recipe. Error:<br>'utf8' codec can't decode byte 0xfb in position 5490: invalid start byte

error when trying to read my .py file into calibre.

Thx for any help,

Piet

I have now saved my recipe as utf8 and can run it in calibre, but am too unfamiliar to get it to run.

This is what I tried - see attachment, which is the LA Times recipe, but with modifications to read from the FT Life & Arts section. (I had to change the .py extension to .txt to get it to upload).

FT has resolved the issue. The articles of the weekend sections are now displayed on http://www.ft.com/intl/uk-edition and http://www.ft.com/intl/international-edition. As of today, the Calibre recipe downloads everything correctly.

Unlike before the FT redesign, the weekend articles seem to be displayed even on weekdays. So your weekday issues may contain "Life & Arts" etc from last weekend. And the weekend issue may contain the weekday "Arts" section.

Anyways, I am happy now. Many thanks to everybody here for the help and support.
