    • now OWR is in the list, you just have to select it, and enter your keywords !
  • adding a stream externally

  • adding OpenWebReader to your dynamic bookmarks reader (Firefox example)

    • type "about:config" in the url bar
    • READ and accept the warning
    • in the search field, type "browser.contentHandlers.types", you will see examples like google or netvibes
    • add the three lines corresponding at your configuration, like those examples : => name="browser.contentHandlers.types.6.title" value="OpenWebReader" => name="browser.contentHandlers.types.6.type" value="application/vnd.mozilla.maybe.feed" => name="browser.contentHandlers.types.6.uri" value="https://yourdomain.tld/PATH/TO/OWR/?do=add&url=%s"
