Problem: Recipe for Foreign Affairs not fetching premium articles

Hi,

The built-in recipe for Foreign Affairs does not fetch premium articles. I have an online subscription with Foreign Affairs. I'm pasting the recipe code below so maybe you can help me tweak it so I can fetch premium articles:

Code:
from calibre.web.feeds.news import BasicNewsRecipe
import re
from calibre.ptempfile import PersistentTemporaryFile

class ForeignAffairsRecipe(BasicNewsRecipe):
    ''' there are three modifications:
    1) fetch issue cover
    2) toggle ignore premium articles
    3) extract proper section names, ie. "Comments", "Essay"

I do not use this recipe but there is a switch:
... INCLUDE_PREMIUM = False
May be you need to change it to "INCLUDE_PREMIUM = True" ?

Edit: just seen you had done a second post and it is solved.
