The continued numbering option only works for a continuously threaded text frame -- one long story spanning several pages. You probably have one single stand-alone text frame per page.
Either make all the text frames into one long story -- you can link two frames together by clicking the Out-port of the first and then clicking on the next frame, and you can use any of ID's numerous page break codes and/or sryle options to have the story break to the next page or frame -- or fake the footnote numering by setting the style of the code in your text to something like .1 pts, No Color and entering the right number manually. The number in the footnote itself can simply deleted.

instead of footnotes you can create a numbered paragraph style for the "footnote" and use cross-referencing...
Thanks very much for the replies! It helped me solve the problem. I made the text frames into one big story, as suggested. Thanks again.
