Bookmark query

I’ve been using a Shortcut to save bookmarks, which is one fewer step than using the bookmarklet. It seems to work well, but I have a query.

In the Micropub section of @manton book, he gives an example of saving a bookmark of a url with some additional content (in this case “enjoyed reading this”):

POST /micropub
Authorization: Bearer 123456789
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded


However, I haven’t been able to get this to work. I can save the link easily, but just pulls the title of the post instead of this additional content that I have written. Depending on the setup of that website this can be ok, but I also have one bookmark that just tells me the name of the website - which is not helpful when I can’t remember what the link is about!

Am I missing something or is this not enabled? I feel it would enhance the functionality of the feature a lot if it was possible.

Thank you.

This is a limitation in It currently ignores the “content” field when saving bookmarks. To be honest, I can’t exactly remember why we did it that way… It does seem like we should add the content too. For example, maybe content and then the title of the bookmarked page.

I’ll make this page.
