Washington Post recipe error

Hi, I'm a Calibre user (and donator ) since version 1 - it is an absolutely wonderful service.

Lately I have noticed however that the Washington Post Recipe fails with the final line in the log being: ValueError: No articles found, aborting. Have they changed the format again?

While on the subject, the Atlantic.com recipe downloads OK, but for many articles it now shows just the same set of static photos, rather than the article that is linked from the article index. A similar problem perhaps?

I am on the latest 3.2.5 version....

Works for me, are you sure you are using the builtin recipe and not a custom one?

Puzzling that it works for you. I just tried again from the drop-down menu and it gave the same conversion error.

I just tested and see the same no-articles-found error. Are you a paid subscriber? They seem to have gone full paywall now. Also I'm seeing there's a GDPR interstitial if you're outside the USA too which maybe mucking things up

There is no field for subscriber username/pw in the recipe I have - is there a version of the recipe that allows that? Looks like otherwise the Post is a gonner. Shame. I wonder how it is that Kovid's recipe works given these problems ?

EDIT: Never mind, I guess this has to do with GDPR

you might be better off finding a free proxy or using a US based VPN when downloading if it's GDPR related.

The recipe can probably be fixed to workaround it, but it has to be done by someone that can reproduce the problem.

Thanks Bobbysteel it does indeed work via a VPN to the US. That will do as my workaround - I have an annual VPN contract, so it just needs enabling permanently on my Calibre server. Much obliged - I missed my daily dose of Jeff Bezos dinging Donald Trump.

Happy to help @cchutney.
Kovid, seems to be IP based blocking on their end from what I can tell. All hits redirect to the paywall/login page here https://www.washingtonpost.com/gdpr-...ination=%2f%3f and it's not able to be bypassed easily AFAICT.

Hmm, well, in that case I'll just add a note to the recipe description saying that the website is blocked in europe.
