  5. Thanks franklin this post helped me to design my contact page…

  6. And again Thank You @Franklin
    This and the related pages post have saved my sanity!
    I am a non techy and thats why I use posterous. And that’s why i was so shocked and disappointed to receive no help at all from posterous’ help people on how to get a form onto my blog.
    Your instructions were so clear I was able to do this and I don’t even use Kontactr, I use MailChimp!
    Thank you again

  7. Does it cost?

  8. Franklin,

    Thanks for the great post. Unfortunately, I tried to follow the directions but Kontactr seems to no longer offer an HTML script, just a 4-line AJAX script. Would it be possible for you to share the HTML embed widget you have (minus the id=).

  9. Hi I have a blogger blog, wordpress blog and I started a posterous blog for travelling journals. I cannot find anything I want when I search, even google hardly shows anything for posterous. Could you direct me on how to add GOOGLE FRIEND CONNECT onto my side bar? and how I add anything there. Really need some direction LOL

  10. Doesn’t work. Posterous doesn’t allow JS code.
