Keyword search for outline.com doesn't work

Kuphostiwe

tried to to add outline.com to my list of "Add a keyword for this search", but it doesn't work. Can anyone help? When you type in your URL directly into the outline.com box, it comes out as a shortened/transformed URL. Can I still use Firefox's "Add a keyword for this search" feature with outline.com?

How to reproduce problem:

1. Go to outline.com

2. Right-click on the blank in the center of the webpage.

3. In the context menu that pops up, select "Add a keyword for this search"

4. A "New Bookmark" window should pop up. In the last blank ("keyword"), type "oo".

5. Open a new tab.

6. In the omnibar/searchbar, type "oo https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/29/magazine/sports-betting-washington.html" (without the quote marks)

7. You are then brought to https://outline.com/?=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.nytimes.com%2F2019%2F01%2F29%2Fmagazine%2Fsports-betting-washington.html with the following error message: "Something went wrong. We're sorry. This page failed to Outline. "


If you don't use keyword search, you won't get this error.

1. Go to outline.com

2. In the webpage's blank, type/paste "https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/29/magazine/sports-betting-washington.html" (without quote marks)

3. Press enter or click the "Create Outline" button.

4. You are taken to https://outline.com/g2CScH , with the webpage properly "outlined".

Unfortunately, the outline.com page is so sparse. It's pretty much just the text box. No "about"/contact info.

When I add a keyword from the search box, the bookmark is:

https://outline.com/?=%s

(Firefox replaces the %s with whatever you have as the query.)

The problem is that the form doesn't have an action URL, so Firefox is just grabbing the URL of the page, which doesn't work for this site.

What actually happens when you submit a URL in the form is that a script sends the URL to another script on the server, which returns some structured data which the script then converts into a page.

Example of what the structured data looks like:

https://outlineapi.com/v3/parse_article?source_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.userchrome.org%2Fhow-create-userchrome-css.html

Anyway, I don't see a way to trigger that entire process through a keyword bookmark.

You might ask the site whether they can add a submission URL, or create an add-on to "Outline this page" that sends the current page URL to the site. You can use their Contact email link at the bottom of an article.
