[squid-users] Accessing squid from a url rather than proxy settings

I want to have users access squid directly from a URL like this:
Rather than by setting a proxy in their browser. Then I want squid to rewrite the URL “my.squidserver.org” to the site I want users to access. The reason I want to do this is in order to access ONLY a certain research database through the proxy server, not all HTTP requests.
When I set up squid to do url rewriting, everything works, if I configure my browser to use my proxy server. However, when I try to access squid directly like mentioned above, it refuses to try to rewrite the URL. Squid just sends back an error like this:
The following error was encountered while trying to retrieve the URL: /testurl
Some aspect of the requested URL is incorrect.
Is what I’m trying to do even possible? If so, how do I fix my problem?
Thanks in advance,
