I am researching if Drupal is the right choice for my project and so far it seems like it fits, except for one issue. I want to give my users ability to create new nodes from a page, let's say it could be something like creating a Facebook status and would reside at /statuses.
Then these nodes could be visible to other users from the same /statuses page. I don't want my users to deal with publishing and path and all those other options that are available via general Create New Node form - I just want to expose one field that they can fill out on /statuses, hit Submit and then have Drupal do the rest.
Is Drupal suitable for such tasks and what would be the most Drupal way to do it?
I am fairly new to Drupal but have tons of experience with other CMSs and frameworks.
I am not looking to create specific feed Facebook/Twitter functionality - it was just an example. The functionality that I am going to create will include much more than that. Feeds were just an example - sorry if I gave the impression that it's what I want to make.
The question is what would be the most Drupal-way to expose a single form field that will allow users to create a new node from a page.
Here's a mockup of the form and page that I want to make. So what would be the best way to proceed?
