Access counter | Control of count and display (invisible counter)

Not allowing the counter to increment


Specification method

Example : incr=N

  • You may have noticed that on every page with more than one counter, no two counters display the same value. That's because the script is accessing the CGI file for each counter. If you want to put two counters on one page, and not have them increase twice every time you get a hit, put incr=N in the second one.
  • To use more than one parameter in a counter, separate them with & or the | symbol.

Hiding the counter


Specification method

Example : sh=N

  • This tag will make an invisible counter. The information on number of hits will be stored, but not displayed on the page. If you want to display the information on another page, use the same file(.dat) name, and include the incr=N tag. Omiting the incr=N tag will cause the value to increase by one every time the second page is accessed.
  • You can put the counter on an unlinked page if you want to know how many hits you get, but you don't want the rest of the world to know.

  • To use more than one parameter in a counter, separate them with & or the | symbol.

Invisible counter with confirmation counter on second page.


Specification method

Example : Page 1: invisible counter sh=N
  Page 2: confirmation counter incr=N

If you want to hide the number of hits on a particular page, but still want them to be counted, you can create an invisible counter.
In order to move the counter, put the same access counter place-record (df=xx.dat) where xx is the same on both page 1 and page 2.

The access counter on the page open to the public (page 1) is not displayed, while the access counter on the confirmation page (page 2) is set to confirm the page 1 count, while at the same time does not increment when you simply enter the confirmation page.

Examples

The tag will differ depending on which homepage service is being used.
