How to add a friendfeed widget in the Posterous sidebar

Actually you can have widgets/embeds on the side of your Posterous.
Mine is a picture! An active picture made from a FriendFeed widget. Go to friendfeed tools and choose a widget you want but instead of javascript choose image.

Go here on friendfeed: http://friendfeed.com/embed/widget  - Instead of Javascript, choose image. Then you get the code to put in your posterous profile..

Posterous don't allow javascript but almost any other HTML, so you can use other widgets too. For example the Twitter counter I have.
Is there a particular width, or should we go with the default? In the posterous sidebar you should use 200 pixel width

Everything you put in your Posterous profile is visible in the sidebar, so the code from the friendfeed widget must be posted there.

I hope this helps.

Good post! Posterous could do with separate profile and sidebar setups.

Thanks. Yes, that would be the best. Maybe that feature is in the private beta? Because in that you can change all kinds of things like theming, colors and such?

Don't forget that you can add other widgets in the same way. You cant use Javascript or Flash, but almost any HTML. For example the Twitter follower counter as I have added.

Yeah, I got it in there last night. It didn't «take» the first time, so I thought I'd done something wrong. Started reading instructions all over again. Next time it stuck... it's neat.

Yeah, it's neat. I've had it there since I started my Posterous blog some years ago.

No it's not javascript. Normal HTML. Just use

around it.

hello,
Do you know of any other way to add a twitter feed to the sidebar? one that doesn't involve using FriendFeed.... The code spewed from the official twitter site all include javascript or flash....

cheers, man :)

@marcuslee No not what I can think of right now. Search for Twitter HTML widgets & see what comes up :)
Aug 10, 2009
Marcus Lee said...
ah yeah, I've tried that. I guess I'll just get a friendfeed account. There doesn't seem to be any other widgets that just use HTML without JavaScript.

oh and err... thanks anyway ^_^

@marcuslee You are welcome :)

Many thanks! I was able to successfully add a Sitemeter item to my Posterous thanks to this information. My hope is to compare Google Analytics vs. Posterous page views vs. Sitemeter. The discrepancies are huge.

LOL! E-Mail spam on your Posterous?! I guess that's a good thing. Spam/crap/arseholes and website popularity are directly proportional dontchaknow?

Svartling said...
Marcus: Not a good thing for me. I removed it now. Lets hope I'ts not getting worse. I guess that Posterous doesn't have any spam protection?

Marcus Lee said...
heh, I don't really mean it was a good thing but, I think there is some truth in that popularity theory ;)
