View Full Version : Counter

03-06-2007, 06:20 PM
I wanted to put a counter on my website and I found some free ones at a free counter site. It looks good to me and it gave me the code to "copy & past directly into your website's html code"
I don't get it. Does anyone know how to do that? Where do i find the html section and put this huge, long code into it?

Any help is, as always, much appreciated. I have tweaked the website too so if anyone wants to check it out and give me some input you can find it at www.dreamdesignlandscaping.com
Thanks again, JD

Julie can you tell us the website you are getting this counter from so we can see the code they want you to cut and paste as well?

Sure, it was easy, i went to www.free-website-counters.com and chose a counter I liked. Then i entered my web address and then the code popped up for me to cut and paste into my websites html - which i have no idea what that means. i found a lot of great clip art online and have added it to my site. i just dont want to go overboard and make a tacky site but it is fun to find them. CHeck it out and let me know what you think. http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/magicman.gif

Ok I tried it and came up with this code for you.

<table border="0" align="center" width="95%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tr><td>Code Sample </td></tr><tr><td id="CODE">

<table width='83' border='0' cellspacing='0' cellpadding='0'><tr><td width='83' height='19'><a href='http://www.shirtmagic.com' target='_blank'><img src='http://www.free-website-counters.com/counter/styles/colorful/1/users/9884/counter.jpg' border='0' alt='screen printing'></a></td></tr><tr><td height='13'><a href='http://www.free-website-counters.com' target='_blank'><img src='http://www.free-website-counters.com/counter/styles/colorful/1/users/9884/sponsor.jpg' alt='Free Website Counters' height='13' border='0'></a><a href='http://www.free-website-counters.com/counter/stats/stats.asp?id=9884' target='_blank'><img src='http://www.free-website-counters.com/counter/stats.gif' width='34' height='13' border='0'></a></td></tr></table><table width='83' border='0' cellpadding='0' cellspacing='0'><tr align='center'><td height='15' colspan='2'><font size='1' face='Arial'><a href='http://www.shirtmagic.com' target='_blank'>screen printing</a></font></td></tr></table>


Can you copy that code and paste it at the bottom of your home page? Then we can see what results happen.

HI. Ok, i used the code that i had originally saved, only because i liked the colors better for the site, and i did exactly as you said...i pasted it onto my webpage home page. I didnt realize that is what they meant so thanks! You answered my question and i got the counter up. Only bad thing is that it counts everytime I GO to the site. Even if i click FAQ or About Us and then go back to Home it adds to the counter. Oh well. It's free. http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

Jules, you can take this part of the code out, if you don't want the custom tshirt thing to appear.
