Inserting Page Counter code into WaterDrops theme Main Page
« on: January 08, 2005, 05:20:03 pm »

Hi,
I hope I am in the correct section to request some assistance as to where I should insert the following code - so that I get my Page Couter ( from www.statcounter.com ) to count hits on my Main Page of my gallery. My gallery at www.sundram.org uses the Water Drop theme. And StatCounter requires that I install this code :


<!-- Start of StatCounter Code -->
<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
var sc_project=305018;
var sc_partition=1;
</script>
<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript" src="http://www.statcounter.com/counter/counter.js"></script><noscript><a href="http://www.statcounter.com/" target="_blank"><img  src="http://c2.statcounter.com/counter.php?sc_project=305018&amp;java=0" alt="counter free hit unique web" border="0"></a> </noscript>
<!-- End of StatCounter Code -->

into the page to track my users who view the main page.

My problem is ...
Can I just go in an insert this code, as is, anywhere in the main index page ( and if so, which page would be best ? )

Any help ( including telling me to read the relevant section of the User Manual would be most appreciated.

Regards,

Thanks. I changed all the punctuation marks - so that they are the same " ' " one on both sides, but I still get the same error, when the page is displayed. Except that this time, they show the punctuation marks being of the straight variety.

Could it be that this code cannot be inserted into the anycontent.php file ?

Please post the entire content of your file.

It looks like you didn't put the statements between php tags.

Hi again,

Guess what ? I inserted the html code from statcounter into the template.html file under the Water Drop theme directory - and it works !
While I am quite sure the elegant way of doing this would be to insert it as PHP code in the anycontent.php file, this also serves my purpose - as I at least have some little understanding of HTML.

Thank you for your help.

Cheers,

Actually, either way is possible. The key thing was the placement (in this case, misplacement) of the last opening php tag. If the html code is outside of php tags, you don't need to use echo statements, as you can see with your table tags. If the code is between php tags, you need to use echo statements.
