Ok, glad you asked
And yes, I'll try to get in that area soon and write it in simpler terms... What's posted here will help a great deal in deciding how to make it easier for all
The quick fix tutorial is as follows:
You can put whatever code you'd like before and after the counter tag... For example to arrange the size of text around it or center it on the page etc etc....
Make sure you have at least the following in place with your counter tag....this is the minimum needed...
Remember to replace UserName_count with your username... if all of your counters only contain UserName then they will ALL add one for each time any page is loaded... the df attribute defines a file that is holding the number to add to... it can be called whatever you'd like... you could for example define each page on your site with a seperate counter df=UserName_index.html and df=UserName_page2.html etc etc....
Now to add different features to your counter you can do this in any order seperating them inside the tag with what we call pipes
--> | <-- Making sure everything is contained within the quotes...
A pipe is created by holding the shift key down and hitting the \ backslash key...
so if you wanted to add the dd tag (dd defines what images you want the counter to be displayed in) to your counter you would add it like this
Replaceing Whatever with the name of the images you want to use in your counter..
And if you wanted to add the ft= option to your counter also (ft defines the border width) you would just tack it on like this
The same goes for any of the MANY MANY options that are available with these counters adding any of them by seperating them with the pipe....
Hope this helps a lil bit... Please feel free to ask any questions in this area... the true counter help file is HUGE because their really are sooooo many options and ways to utilize this script.. so detailed questions will be easiest to answer
I'm going to head over to your page and see if I can pinpoint the problem your having
p.s. the counters will not allow the same IP to just 'reload, reload, reload' in order to count... so if trying that is what is making you think it's not working hehe nope that's not it.. it likes to wait a while before it counts the same person again or it will wait until another person loads it then it will count you again.. so two different ppl reloading a bunch would make it jump but one person doing it will not
