Sorry, I got lost. I searched for pocket and calibre, trying to figure out why I couldn't transfer articles from pocket to calibre using the calibre recipes.

There are sevweral variations of it in github as well.

I bookmark stuff on the kobo into pocket all the time to share it with other web browsers, etc..

how do you bookmark within kobo app? and then you open the pocket on a computer?

I'm not sure what you mean. But, as a starting point, the calibre toolbar probably has an icon for news. It's an "N" with a downward arrow. When you click this, the "Schedule news download" dialog is displayed. The list shows languages. The Pocket recipe is in "Unknown". Expand the category and select it. You will need to enter your username and password. Press the "Dowload now" button to get the articles. Calibre will start a job to fetch the articles into a book.

The problem is in how Pocket works. When you add a site to Pocket, they classify it. Anything they think is an "article" will be downloaded to the Kobo devices. I doubt that they treat the printview version differently to the normal view. You need to ask Pocket to change the classification for the site.

I had the same issue with syncing some Pocket articles to my Kobo Glo. What I ended up doing is creating a HTML5 document on my website, copying the article I want to read on my kobo into my document and adding noindex and nofollow in the meta. Then I went and add my new website page to Pocket. It synced right away - ready to read it on my Kobo. The code looks something like this:
<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
<META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW">
<meta charset="utf-8">

<title>Original article title</title>
</head>

<body>
<article class="film_review">
<header>
<h2>some subtitle</h2>
</header>
<section class="main_review">
<p>copy of article I want to read</p>
</section>

<footer>

Use a simplify webpage service

I solved this problem by using a 'simplify webpage to print' service. Just paste the link of the webpage into https://www.printfriendly.com and then click the 'save to pocket' button on the modified webpage. The nice thing with https://www.printfriendly.com is that it saves the title of the work directly to pocket.
