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 h=entry&content=Enjoyed%20reading%20this.&bookmark-of=https://example.com/interesting-article/
However, I haven’t been able to get this to work. I can save the link easily, but micro.blog 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.
