Dave Driesmans (davedriesmans) | 3 comments Hi,

I'm doing some research on the goodreads api.

How come this sample url showed on https://www.goodreads.com/api/index#b... isn't working for me:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/isbn_t...

It results in Page Not Found


but this does work
https://www.goodreads.com/book/id_to_...


Seems like a lot of the samples aren't working for me? What am i doing wrong?


Dave

David (wispborne) | 8 comments Hey, not a Goodreads official or anything, but I figured out that you need to use querystring params.

That is, this works:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/isbn_t...

You need to use ?isbn=value1,value2,value3 rather than have it as a path variable.

And no, this isn't documented anywhere :)

David (wispborne) | 8 comments Oh - just saw that this is submitted as a bug elsewhere with a solution. No response from GR.
