For me - the recipe (the one with The Economist logo on it) runs fine, and the first few articles display correctly. But everything from the letters page onward gives a paragraph or two followed by blurb asking me to sign up and talking about NewsGuard. Here's one example of an article - which for me looks like this (and looks similar on my Kobo Aura One).

Trying that article page in an incognito window, it looks like a different layout, with an older header, and different signup text (with no mention of NewsGuard).

(Trying again in an incognito window, I've been given the "NewsGuard" version).

I would therefore guess that they're testing a new version of their website, with different protection on it. I'd very much like a version of this recipe that I can log into.

I tried the other recipe (the one with the 'N' logo pointing downwards). That exhibits the same behaviour. Which looks like this, if you're interested.

Economist NewsGuard

As of the Dec 6 issue of the Economist (Britain's Nightmare Before Christmas) I have the same problem with NewsGuard limiting full access to the articles and asking for me to subscribe. I've tried updating Calibre to the latest 4.5.0 version - to no avail. Is there anything I can do to get full access once again, other than paying a very expensive subscription fee?

As has been stated repeatedly in this thread all you need to do is retry the download a few times until you get the full version.

Recipe

Hello,
I am new and am struggling to have full access to the latest issue of the Economist despite having downloaded version 4.5 of Calibre. I have tried several times already - to no avail. Can anyone explain what a recipe is ?
Many thanks & congratulations for creating Calibre

I successfully downloaded the latest copy of The Economist.
Unlike last week's edition there were no calls to sign up. Thanks Kovid

@kinming: Your version of calibre is too old for this recipe.
