harvard business review (hbr) disabled?

Hi,

trying to get hbr to download (not the blogs) and i get an error that the recipe has been disabled because hbr uses javascript login/.

is there any way to make it work?

(calibre 8.26)

here's the exact error:

calibre, version 0.8.26
ERROR: Recipe Disabled: <p> hbr.org has started requiring the use of javascript to log into their website. This is unsupported in calibre, so this recipe has been disabled. If you would like to see HBR supported in calibre, contact hbr.org and ask them to provide a javascript free login method.
</p>

Calibre 0.8.26

You quoted the suggested way:

It's unlikely there is any other solution. I've written recipes that have interacted with javascript sites, but only by ignoring the javascript and doing what I want without it. That only works occasionally.

So HBR is still not working. Has anyone found a workaround? If yes, could you please share?
