If not, adjust, etc. until it prints the right tag.
Code:
    def print_version(self, url):
        raw = self.browser.open(url).read()
        soup = BeautifulSoup(raw.decode('utf8', 'replace'))
        print_link = soup.find('a', {'class':'printarticle'})
        return  'www.infomotori.com' + print_link['href'] 
        feeds          =     [(u'Ultime Novit\xe0', u'http://feeds.infomotori.com/ultimenovita')]
In this case the print link appeare good in debug, but the calibre return "can't download article. try -vv for details"

Recipe for "The West Australian" newspaper?

Hello,

I'm very new to this fantastic service (calibre) and to this site as well. If I'm reading correctly, it seems people here more knowledgeable than I are willing to create recipes for newspaper sites. If so, I'd like to take advantage as I'm a complete newbie at this kind of thing.

I'm interested in a new recipe for "The West Australian" newspaper, (thewest.com.au)

Thanks so much.


P.S. Many thanks for the existing service on some other Australian papers.

No. You may not be aware, but it's not polite to ask for help and to ask for it to be delivered personally via email.

Many, many thanks. I don't know how you did it, but it works perfectly.

Is it at all possible to adjust the recipe to include images? Please forgive if this is a stupid question.

Catholic News Recipe

I was hoping I could request a recipe for http://www.catholicnews.com. I tried doing it myself, but all the articles came up blank. There are 3 feeds. Top News, Vatican, and Movie Reviews........I would like all if possible.

Thanks in advance for the help......also is there any reason why just adding the feeds in Calibre doesn't work.........?

Here is the code for what I tried to do:

Code:
class AdvancedUserRecipe1272117202(BasicNewsRecipe):
    title          = u'Catholic News'
    oldest_article = 7
    max_articles_per_feed = 100

    feeds          = [(u'Top Stories', u'http://feedity.com/rss.aspx/catholicnews-com/UVNXUVU'), (u'Vatacan', u'http://feedity.com/rss.aspx/catholicnews-com/VVdQUFM'), (u'Movie Reviews', u'http://feedity.com/rss.aspx/catholicnews-com/VVRTW1Q')]
Thanks again.......

Because I sent you here, and more or less promised someone would help, I set out to do it myself. I first took my standard recipe and dropped your feeds into it.

It worked.

Since my standard recipe isn't too different from the default produced by Calibre, I wondered why yours didn't work, so I tried yours.

It worked, too.

So now I wonder why you think your recipe doesn't work?

The default could be improved a bit, but it's certainly readable.

Starson.....first off thanks for doing this I appreciate it.......I don't know what could be different? As I stated in my other post, it seems that everything is ok but when I click into a headline.......I get no article just a blank page that states "Article Downloaded by caibre...." an then the url but this is the only thing that shows. It seems to have the correct amount of pages, but again they have no text except for the message above. Is this not what you are seeing?

Thanks again.

I see the complete article, as it appears when I go to the article in my browser, with the "Article Downloaded by Calibre...." message at the bottom. Are you viewing your result as an epub on your computer or are you converting to another format first?

Edit: Do other recipes work for you?

Maybe that is my issue......I am using Calibre to transfer to my Sony PRS-700. The default format I am using is LRF. I am going to try epub and see how that works.............I tried it and still the same issue.........I didn't upload it to my device I just fetched it and viewed it through Calibre the articles still do not download...........just the "Article downloaded by calibre........."

Sorry I am not making this up.........just weird!!!
