Economist - Missing most photos

Just fyi...

Trying to download this week's Economist, but the lead photo in every article is missing. I tried both Economist scripts, and also both the "mobi" and "epub" preferred outputs.

I'm running Calibre v2.81 in a Win7 box. I even reverted back to v2.77 to see if it's Economist scripts could do any better, since they worked last week, but they produce the same output (w/no lead article photos).

Altho' Economist has gone full time to their new web page format, it's been that way for the past several weeks & the script has worked OK (altho' output is a bit different since Economist changed their web site). Apparently they've made some other changes since last week.

I tried 6 times, and I was logged in to the Economist at all times. But... do I need to also put username/password in the Fetch News setup? (I've never done so over the past year or more)

In the multiple "Fetch News Details" that I saved there's lots of "Recursion limit reached. Skipping links in..."

Anyways... just fyi.

Sigh, I wish they'd finish tinkering with their website https://github.com/kovidgoyal/calibr...79dd32ad7305d0

Wow! I mean "Wow!" It works beautifully now! I had no idea that the recipes were dynamic like that. I thought they were static & went with whatever version of Calibre that was installed, which is why I first tried to add your recipe above as a "Custom News Source." When that didn't work (compile error), I just reran the original Economist recipe & it worked great this time.

Mucho thanks! (and so begins my 'learning about recipes' journey..)

Also, I've sent a donation to Calibre. I'm a longtime user & have donated in the past, but it's definitely been too long.
