Stefan Tandecki | 4 comments Hello, I have a Problem with using the owned_books.create API, you might shed some light on... I successfully logged on using OAuth and api/auth and owned_books/user work like a charm. But when I try to add a book using owned_books.create by POSTing to http://www.goodreads.com/owned_books.xml I always get a "401 Unauthorized" as result. Is there anything Special (besides OAuth) to consider when using that part of the API? Thanks in advance, Stefan

Stefan Tandecki | 4 comments sorry for bothering, but isn't there just anybody using that API? I'd really appreciate getting some help here to use that... Stefan

Ettore Pasquini Hi Stefan, I'm going to look into it and report back once I have an answer.

Ettore Pasquini Hi Stefan, sorry for the delay. Our tests for that api check out, so I'm not sure what's happening. I know that there are some clients that have problems in submitting requests that include square brackets in parameters, so that could be something to look into: make sure the framework you're using to submit requests supports them. There are some posts in this forum that talk about that.
