Thanks rty. Looks great. As for the cover image, i was thinking something like this.

I tried to find the code to insert it myself, but even in the tutorials on calibres website, but i couldnt see it. Also seems weird calibre cant process more than one source per digital newspaper. You would think a lot of people would want to roll their own custom papers with their fav. comics, and editorials + reliable news sources.

Here it is. (See attached zip file) I modified it a bit to pick up the logo you provided.

For some reasons, it works now. Please see the attached ZIP file. There are 2 recipes inside. The extra recipe is for one with Winnipeg 7-Day Weather Forecast as you requested.

This particular news feed recipe is broken. All it generates is just a table of contents. Could it be fixed, please?

Gizmodo works awesomely now, thank you.

With MaximumPC tossing out some Calibre love, I'm surprised that I can't find a MaximumPC recipe. Has anyone had any success in doing this? Or is it in the defaults, and I'm just missing it?

Looks like a basic Custom RSS Feed add will get me the articles, but they have all the added nav cruft. The print page uses a special code that I can find in the source of the article, but haven't the foggiest notion of how to get that into the print URL. In short, I've tried the basic stuff, but it's ugly. Functional for now.

If someone wants to fiddle with it, the web address is http://www.maximumpc.com.

This is a link to all their RSS feeds:
http://www.maximumpc.com/rss_feeds

I'd love to have a purty recipe for this, but it's beyond my abilities.

How do you get Calibre to see the new recipe? I have added it to the recipes folder but that doesn't do anything.

Sadly, the Honolulu Advertiser was bought by the Honolulu Star-Bulletin. The new paper is called the Star Advertiser at www.staradvertiser.com.

Any chance of a new recipe? And the old ones are no longer valid...

Fetch News - click the small triangle to the right of that button, then choose Add a Custom news Source, then choose Load Recipe from file.

MaxPC

I had the exact same issues when I tried to modify a recipe to use for MaximumPC. I have asked for it a couple of times here. I know these guys are pretty busy. At some point I will sit down and figure out how these recipes work so I can help. If I get one for MaxPC, you'll be the first to know.

Here's my humble quick and dirty attempt on MaximumPC. It's far from perfect , for example, it can't handle articles that span multiple pages, etc but... I am still learning as well.

MaxPC

rty: That looks pretty good. I'll take a look at your code. Maybe I can learn something as well. Thanks for the help!

If you want help on multipage, search in this thread, then feel free to ask. Learning to do a multipage recipe is lots of fun. Print article methods are easier, but you learn less. Start here for multipage.
