Need help creating a news feed
I am trying to create an ebook version of my local commuter newspaper so that I can read it on the subway without needing wi-fi on my iPod Touch.
They have RSS feeds available here:
I previewed each list in my web browser and got what I wanted: a page of story titles with one or so paragraphs of text, the idea being that I could download the whole thing and get a mini-newspaper in Calibre.
So I went to create my custom news feed. I put in the section title, copied the URL from the orange RSS button for each section and thought I had done everything right. It would not download right away. I quit Calibre and restarted it, was able to download it...
And it was blank. I had section titles (Local News, Business News, Entertainment News etc) but no headlines, no stories, nothing. Just seven pages each with the headline of a section and nothing else. What I am doing wrong here?
