Posterous

I have a lot of mess to clean up

I just noticed (rather late I would say) that all the posts I had transferred over from posterous don’t have any images any more.
I thought that when I transferred my posts to WordPress, I also transferred the images, but it turns out that I was hugely mistaken, so now I have a bunch of posts that don’t have any photographs at all… This is terrible annoying. I will have to go through each and every one of my 637 posts to edit and delete… Boring!

Anyway, I just felt like sharing that with whoever reads this.

Hey Posterous! What happened to the page redirects between my own posterous websites?

I just noticed that Posterous has deactivated the Page Redirects between my own Posterous websites. What do I mean? Well, I use Instagram. I love it. I love it so much I created the spinstagram.posterous.com blog. There is a minor issue though, Instagram only lets you post to you main blog. My main blog is spyros.posterous.com. For months now this has been only a minor issue, as I mentioned before. I just posted directyly to my spyros.posterous.com blog and then I moved the post from that posterous site to spinstagram.posterous.com. Posterous took care of the redirects and all my cross networking links still worked. Read More…

I never thought of sharing my Posterous theme but Viggo Andersen gave me the idea and so here it is. To be precise this is not MY theme, but a modified version of Cory Watilo’s Purple Theme which you can find in the Posterous Themes list.

I don’t have the time to upload an instructions manual for how to install it, so I guess some technical knowledge of HTML is needed in order for the theme to work properly. What I can say to make things easier is this:

  1. Download and Unarchive the ZIP file.
  2. The theme has 3 image files which have to be uploaded somewhere (anywhere).
  3. You must change the existing images location in the HTML code to the location of your images (mentioned in step 2).
  4. Open the HTML file in a TEXT editor and Copy all.
  5. Open the Posterous SETTINGS page and click on the EDIT THEME button.
  6. Once it has loaded, scroll down to find the PURPLE theme by Cory Watilo and choose it.
  7. Once it has been chosen, click on the ADVANCED menu item on the left and give a name to your theme.
  8. A text box with code will appear. Select all and delete. Then Paste the code you copied from my HTML file.
  9. Press Preview, then SAVE I’M DONE and you are done!

Hope you like it!

P.S. If you use it and feel like mentioning my post, that’s cool. If not, no prob. Cheers!
