Charles Trella | 6 comments We are having a problem getting the good reads data. When we use this URL:
http://www.goodreads.com/book/review_...
with this post {"isbns": "9780312193096,9780312194390, (we send 1000 at time)", "key": "iaR8dlC7RTD6osOhaU6pgA"}

to get the ratings data we are getting this error:
The remote server returned an error: (500) Internal Server Error.

The last time it worked was on Monday night March 18th.

Khashabawy | 6 comments All the post urls
Would you please try the link i gave u


message 8: by Michael (new)

Michael Economy (michaeleconomy) Ok, so you're passing a "review" parameters, but instead you need to do: "review[review]" and so forth. heres the specification:

http://www.goodreads.com/api#review.c...


You're super close to getting it working, but the square brackets are a pain to get the encoding correct sometimes.

just making sure, that api is supposed to work with a DELETE (per spec). Did you perhaps use a POST?
