Ok, I think I've worked out how to add the anchor text to Posterous now. There is no need to put the html code in, just click on 'Reader', then 'Manage spaces'. From the drop down menu select 'Pages & Links' there are two boxes, one for the link address ie: www.whatever.com and the other for the actual anchor text.
I assume the other guys worked this out already, especially as the last post before mine was pretty old, but figured I'd post this to save other people a bit of time trying to figure it out.
If I've got this wrong in any way, let me know.
Thanks since xanga and others aren't posterous compatible are there any other platforms that are compatible with posterous?
I'm finding that several of the blogging accounts do not allow autoposting from posterous. So, I'm trying to do the next best thing. I'm emailing to posterous for those that do, and forwarding the email to the others that don't (but allow post by email). Of course, you have to remove the email forwarding info you don't want included in your post.
I'm just getting into this. I was excited about using Posterous...but now I'm thinking it's somewhat useless. The only thing I got it to connect to was Twitter and Blogger.Com. I'm not sure it's much of an advantage to use considering the following:
1. I'm not sure I want to use Posterous with Twitter. I use Twitter a bit differently (hashtags, etc.) and don't want to confuse things...
2. Posterous won't connect to my Facebook Page
3. Posterous isn't compatible with Xanga
4. Posterous isn't compatible with Identi.ca
5. Posterous won't connect to Tumblr
