Hudson Atwell | 4 comments Do you have a button that a user can press to share a 'General Update' type status update from our website?

If we could use _GET parameters on https://www.goodreads.com/update_status to set the status mode that would help solve the issue for us real fast.

What do you think?

Hudson Atwell | 4 comments We are trying to allow our traffic to share the page they are on to the goodreads community. It's like a Twitter, LinkedIn, or Facebook general status share.

User clicks the goodreads button takes them to https://www.goodreads.com/update_stat... and crafts their general status and submits (with the link attached).

This way visitors won't be limited to the % of a book completed status template and can submit a general share status.

Hudson Atwell | 4 comments I've also tried really hard to use oauth to create a popup->authorize->post status funnel but failed at my first attempt. Going around oauth using the https://www.goodreads.com/update_stat... link would be easier and more ideal.

Ettore Pasquini Sounds like you should use user_status/create:
