Today, our test subject will be service Posterous . Unlike Squidoo, this is a cross platform blog. However, it has some interesting features. Let's start with a simple registration and account creation on Posterous.
https: // posterous. com /
The main feature Posterous - publication through the mailbox .
Everything is done very simply. You create a letter. The title will be the subject of the letter, and the main text will be the body of the letter. Posterous will accept your letter and at the address that will act as an account, publish an article or message on your blog in the system. It is clear that first you need to register a mailbox in Posterous.
There are 2 ways to create an account on Posterous . I have already mentioned the first one. Now a little more. When sending the first message to Posterous, the system accepts it and fixes it. In response to your mail will come about this message.
The system will report that everything is OK, the message has been received. But, it has not yet been published, because you do not have a Posterous site.
In the email below you will see the link Click here to set a password for this site (click here to set a password for your site). OK, we click.
Set the name of our site and password. After we press on Sign Up . Sly registration 🙂
After that, a window will open where you fill in your personal information: first name, last name, photo. In the field YOUR BIO (your biography) you can enter the URL and anchor. Fine! How to register anchors remember?
. a href = "http: // www. YOURDOMAIN. com". YOUR ANCHOR TEXT. / a.
The second way to create an account is to simply register in the old-fashioned way. On the main page Posterous in the section Get Started we register our mail, password and the desired name of our site. We confirm our e-mail. You know the rest.
This is the second Posterous feature. You can publish articles yourself using mail. You can, by the way, post your hands. However, more of this system is used for cross-posting . Our receiver will be a blog on the WordPress engine.
In the control panel, click on the section Autopost . And then the Make Changes button (change).
Next, click the Add a Service button. Choose WordPress.
Next, the system will ask for the login and password for the WordPress account.
In the Blog URL field, write the address of the blog. In my case, this is http: // challenge. co / blog. Specify the login and password from the blog. All crossposting is configured.
I note that the cross-post comes from Posterous to other services and sites. Everything that you send from mail comes to Posterous and is published on it, and also the cross-post goes to services connected to Posterous.
!!! Attention !!! We do not recommend connecting to Posterous blogs created and managed through WPD. The problem is not compatibility. It's a WP. Everything is OK with him. These are business blogs and they need a manual approach, not posting plagiarism. Posterous can be used for satellites of our main blog.
