Got a question, hope someone can answer... Where can I find a free iPage web host to publish my website? Many thanks for any comment. Another question on my mind: I'm not looking for anything that logs visits or anything fancy. Just want a simple text (or graphical if I must) counter for the index page only. We provide logs for our clients but one of them wants a counter so it shows his visitors how popular his iPage site is..

I've searched for a js on a1 (to no avail) and did a search on this iPage site & found a lot of resources for counters that use databases & stuff. Is there not a simpler counter I can use? I tried using something FrontPage has but it didn't seem to work and I'd rather not rely on a FP component..

Pls help! TIA..

Good question... I dunno what is the answer to your question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I discover an anything. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could answer your iPage question..

Leoo - i'm not sure if i'm reading it correctly or not - but doesn't the putrid counter just create a file w/ a counter in it? i'm not versed in php so i'm not sure - but that's what it looks like. all I want is a simple counter that will be displayed at the bottom of the page..

Transmothra - I checked out & they all seemed to be logging-type counters. since I have logs i'm not interested in using a counter that does that - just something that counts each time the page is hit. I don't think it can be done w/ js (after reading other common threads). i'm hoping to find an easy pearl script - but i'm still searching! thanks for the help...

There should be tons of Perl ones available through the first link....


Or there is one here too....


(requires Perl and SSI)..

You're almost there, all it is you have a piece of php code on your page, which writes the hits to a flat file, at the same time displaying the number of hits in a counter, problem with this is you would have to rename you index to a .php extension (unless you configured you server to parse .html as .php), easier would be to use a.


Counter like htmlite said..

A remotely hosted counter is by far the easiest just it also acts as a link to the counter host...

You could try.


If you sign up for TheCounter, then ditch their non-compliant code and replace it with:.

<! Start of Code >.

<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript"><!.



<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript1.2"><!.


If (v != "Netscape") {c=screen.colorDepth}.

Else {c=screen.pixelDepth}.



<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript"><!.

Function pr(n) {document.write(n," ");}.


If (navigator.appName == "Netscape" &&.

Navigator.appVersion.charAt(0) == "2") {NS2Ch=1}.

If (NS2Ch == 0) {.


Pr("<a href=\"\" target=\"_top\"><img").

Pr("align=\"center\" border=\"0\" alt=\"TheCounter\"").



<noscript><a href="" target="_top"><img.

Src="" align="center".

Border="0" alt="TheCounter"></a></noscript>.

<! End of Code >.

You will need to change the digits 000000000 to be your own ID number..

There are two separate places in the code where this has to be done..

The word CENTER can be changed to LEFT or RIGHT if you need a different.

Alignment of the image. There are two places that this needs to be done..

Make sure you refer to the correct server. Find the two.

Entries and change these to match the one your account is on. This may be.


Or even.

Whenever I have a real problem like this, I do the cheap thing (or I ask you guys). make a page with geocities and make a hit counter, then copy and paste the code.. hehe.....
