Over the last couple of days Posterous has added new features. Most welcomed (by me anyway) are the “page breaks” which let you display a shortened version of a post on your main listing pages. You won’t have to scroll and scroll now at sites that have longer posts (like my Seward Profile site where the neighborhood e-newsletter can stretch out a ways). The feature is a new icon (
) in the web editor or you can type “#more” on a new line in an email post like I’m going to do right now.
The second feature is timed releases. I don’t have a need for this right now but as more people want to post to the Profile site, I could see spacing the announcements and posts out over the day. One downside of this feature is that there still is no time zone chooser in Posterous so you have to time your releases for Pacific time.
