Counters (How Do I
How To Find The Following Screen In the Control Panel
First log on to your account control panel and then:
1. Click Counter Setup
2. Click Create Counters
Now you have found your way to the screen for creating counters
you should be faced with a screen similar to the one below!
the illustration may differ slightly
from the editor itself due to upgrades over time; but the
general format will stay the same...
Points to Bear in Mind
A. When you first
open your account you will
have no webpage counters installed on your account at all,
this is so you can independently name your counters to whatever
you like right from the start so only you can recognize them
and they can be named suitably after your web page.
B. The system will only allow you
alphabetical named counters it allows no other character other
than an underscore in your couter name this aids the automatic
sort in the boxes below the editor add function so that your
counters are listed alphabetically in order....
C. If you have a Beta Free account
the maximum amount of counters you can add is 3, however;
A registered account can request extra counters and there
is no real limit to the amount of couters you can add to the
editor on a registered account.
Adding A Counter to Your Account
1. Enter a unique
name that you can remember easily into the box as shown on
the illustration below (1 In picture),
this name you select is usually better named after the web
page the counter will sit on i.e. if the counter is going
on the first page of your site usually "index.htm"
name the counter "index"!
however if each counter is going
on a different site? name it after the site i.e. "globel.co.uk"
I would name my counter "globel", Additionally if
you are intending using lot's of sites and lot's of pages
it would be best to name your counters thus "globel_index"
& "globel_pagename" etc. and the same for any
other site and any other page, however please note there is
a restriction of twenty characters on counter names so if
necessary try shortening the reference i.e. "gbl_index"
etc. this will make your statistics later on very easy to
2. once you have decided on your
names for your counters and please put a little thought into
it as it will help your couter in the long run, you now create
the counters one by one inserting the new name in the box
(1 In picture) the pressing "Make-New-Counter"
(2 In picture) (wait a few seconds
for a new screen) and then enter the next.
3. On the creation of each new counter
you will see your new named counter appear in the box's below
as shown (3 In picture) the name
you have chosen will be capitalized for easy reading in these
box's and sorted into an alphabetical order, with each new
counter created the editor will create a new link to it's
own setup i.e. the link to the counter "PAUL"
(illustration) just click this link in your account to
Get The HTML code for that counter:
Note: the counter editor has been
created this way to give you maximum versatility naming your
counters; I receive so many variations of sites that the above
editor has been designed to hopefully suit all! However if
you are using a configuration that requires a different approach
please contact me, I can always review it and build it in
next time round.
