Is there a way to add a counter to the main page? I would like to see the amount of hits to the site.

you can add it to the theme/yourtheme/template.html.

the easiest way is to find {GALLERY}, then add <br> your counter code.

this places it at the bottom of the page, just after the 'powered by coppermine'.

Hi,

I think this is because you have used the code for special characters, instead of the character itself (did you use a wysiwyg editor), so try changing this;

Code: [Select]
<PRE>&lt;!-- Start counter.bloke.com --&gt;
&lt;table border=4&gt;&lt;tr&gt;&lt;td&gt;
&lt;applet
CODEBASE="http://www7.counter.bloke.com/c/"
CODE="Counter.class" WIDTH=75 HEIGHT=20&gt;
&lt;param name=URL value="http://www.porcupinepc.com/family"&gt;
&lt;param name=reset value="0"&gt;
&lt;param name=img value="/c/default.gif"&gt;
&lt;/applet&gt;&lt;/td&gt;&lt;/tr&gt;&lt;/table&gt;
&lt;font face=arial size=1&gt;Powered by &lt;a
TARGET="_top" href=http://counter.bloke.com/&gt;counter.bloke.com&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/font&gt;&lt;br&gt;
&lt;!-- End counter.bloke.com --&gt;
</PRE>


to this;
Code: [Select]
<PRE><!-- Start counter.bloke.com -->
<table border=4><tr><td>
<applet
CODEBASE="http://www7.counter.bloke.com/c/"
CODE="Counter.class" WIDTH=75 HEIGHT=20>
<param name=URL value="http://www.porcupinepc.com/family">
<param name=reset value="0">
<param name=img value="/c/default.gif">
</applet></td></tr></table>
<font face=arial size=1>Powered by <a
TARGET="_top" href=http://counter.bloke.com/>counter.bloke.com</a></font><br>
<!-- End counter.bloke.com -->
</PRE>


Hope this works.

OK tested on my site, and it's the <PRE> and </PRE> that causes the problem.

get rid of these, and it works.  :wink:

i still get the raw html code showing on the coppermine page. Im using Microsoft FrontPage to edit the template.html file. Does this make a difference?

Yes it does, coppermine hates wysiwyg code for some reason.

I suggest you alter your template.html in notepad, or use something like firstpage2000 (what I use).

If you take the original code, and add the code I posted ealier (without the <PRE> and  </PRE>) it should work.  It did on my site, where I simply copied and pasted the above code.  Note, I did not include the table formating, just paste the above after the {GALLERY}.
