Posterous Now Supports Drupal Blogs

I am a fan of Posterous and I am glad to see them support Drupal directly.

We're happy to announce our newest autoposting destination: Drupal! Now it's super easy to update your self-hosted Drupal blog using email. Before adding your site as an autopost destination, make sure that the "Blog" and "Blog API" modules are enabled (you have to be a site administrator to do this). Then just add your Drupal site URL, username, and password and you're ready to go!

Minor changes to the site theme

I succeeded in not blowing up the site again... I guess it helps if you don't try to update Drupal 6 with Drupal 5.

So what have I been doing?

Minor tweaks to the theme. Minor tweaks to installed modules. Adding modules to the new site. One of the modules I installed was Search 404. When I created this new site, I just started from scratch. All the original links that the search engines indexed are now wrong and without the Search 404 module, you'd be sent to a 404 page instead of the page you were looking for. What does this module do? Searches the new site for the article you were originally looking for and finds it for you. It's not perfect, but it finds most pages requests. I think this is going to be one of the first modules I will create a video tutorial on to show how it works. It's a site saver when you update your site with new URLs. Look for it soon here!

Other than that, I still have some tweaking to do, I still have to move a few of the old videos to Blip.tv, and I am going on vacation tomorrow for a week. Look for new videos after that. :)
