View Full Version : hit counter not counting

I recently published my first homepage complete with hit counter. Alas, it won't count!
I used FP2000 to create the work.

FP 2000 counters are a pain, they count a visitor everytime they return to the front page (or where ever the counter is sited). Try using a 3rd party counter such as sitemeter (www.sitemeter.com) You get more accurate stats and the results provide much more detail such as referer country etc.

Check with whoever is hosting your website that the server supports FrontPage extensions. If it doesn't then some of FP features such as the counter don't work.

thanks heaps Andrew and Vaughan!
I did a bit of jiggery pokery with html (another new language for me) plus a new counter and all's well.
