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 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 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 link would be easier and more ideal.

Ettore Pasquini Sounds like you should use user_status/create:
