Website Counter

I have just realised I put this in the wrong section.  So forgive me if you have seen this already.
I have been playing around with trying to get a counter on my website and I am having no luck at all.  Here is the code I copied from Plusnet
style="vertical-align: top; width: 1030px; background-color: rgb(17, 22, 17);"> 
           
       
           
&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;<big><big><big><span
style="font-family: Segoe Script;"> </span><span
style="color: white; font-family: Segoe Script;">Sheila<br >
      < br >
      <img
src="http://homepage.plus.net/.../count_elect?photoplus_ss ">
      <br >
      </span></big></big></big></td >
    </tr >
    <tr >
      <td =""></td >
    </tr >
style="vertical-align: top; background-color: rgb(17, 22, 17); width:
1030px; height: 47px;"&gt;
  </tbody >
</table >
<br >
</body >
</html >
I really don't know anything about HTML.  I am using Komposer as you can plainly see from the rubbish design.  But, it's simple and I am hoping it will help my wife get her books off the ground.  I need though to get that counter going so as we can assess the hits.  I can't get the <img src to stay on the same line?

Re: Website Counter

I think the problem could be typos in the image counter URL. The source for your page shows this is
http://plusnet.plus.net/cgi-bin/count_elect?photoplus_ss
According to the Plusnet help page here the "plusnet" text should be "homepages" (with an 's') and "elect" should be "elec" (without a 't').

Hi Tony,
This isn't quite what you'd asked for, but have to say it's worth getting your head around html.  If I can do it, anyone can :/
A good place to start with basic html is Arachnophilia.  The guy who wrote this is an absolute genius, as you'll discover if you use it.  soooo simple.  Maybe start at http://vps.arachnoid.com/lutusp/html_tutor.html (see also
http://vps.arachnoid.com/lutusp/pagebuild.html ). The *free* (careware, no cash) program "Arachnophilia" is at
http://vps.arachnoid.com/arachnophilia/index_old.html - there's a java version but we still use the old 4.0 version for pagebuilding here.
Basically once you've built a page using his instructions, you can look at the source code and figure out what equates to what (ie how what's in the source code matches up with what's visible in the browser).
As soon as you get to the point of understanding what the html "means", you're almost there.  Won't take you long - couple of days, at most, probably a lot less than that.  You don't need css, you don't need content management systems, you don't need java ... just some very basic building blocks out of which you can create more or less anything.
Just strikes me you'll get a whole lot further with a program like Arachnophilia (and have a lot more fun building your site) than struggling with something which won't even let you put img src etc. on a single line.
Just my view, for whatever that's worth to you :/
Best regards,
Penny.

Re: Website Counter

Many thanks for the link.  I shall have a look at it when I haven't had too much morphine as I have at this present time.  I am happy with the result of the pages as its to do a job.  I just really wanted the counter to work for my wife.  She can then keep nagging the publishers to show how much interest she has.  Also, it may tell her the opposite.  We hope that won't be the case
Thank you so much for your advice

Good luck with your site (and the books).

Re: Website Counter

You can get a Website Counter from Addfreestats Free Web Stats it is better van the Hit Counter from PlusNet.
To put the code in your page use Notepad, Notepad will not mess up the code.
Hope this helps.

Re: Website Counter

Thanks for the tip.  The website you gave me WOT gave it a no go area.  I tend to stick to their comments.  I think I shall have to contact Plusnet to see what they say.  Thank you again

Re: Website Counter

The Plusnet counter will work if the changes I suggested in Reply #1 are made.
Also to remove the < style= .... > text that appears at the top of the web page that text needs deleting between the closing < /tr > and < /tbody > tags near the *end* of the page.
