Running convert to generate a webarchive from a bookmark often takes more than one attempt, it will just create a duplicate bookmark on the first try. Also seems to take longer than it used to / should?
An example URL would be useful, especially dynamic web pages might require more time as the clipping tries to simulate scrolling by the user to load (hopefully) all contents.
Having trouble reproducing now. I’ll post a link when I see the issue again, thanks.
Okay, here’s one. I really suspect the issue may not be with the site as opposed to my setup, but this:
First try, long pause and it just generates a duplicate bookmark, no webarchive. Second try converting the same bookmark works. It’s weird.
Yeah, I’m sure part of the problem is just the general awfulness of the internet in 2023, contra what I said before. But the thing where it fails the first time and then not on the second attempt is weird. And subjectively it seems notably slower but who knows what that’s about or whether it’s real.
What you could do is to retrieve the
innerText of all
p elements with a class of
paywall (how inventive a name). Something along these lines
paywall paragraphs. It requires the website to be loaded in the first tab of the topmost window of Safari (or simply the only tab of the only window).
