Using the Hit Counter

Hit counters are used on almost every Web site to keep a running total of the number of visitors to that site. To insert a hit counter component into your page (normally it would appear somewhere on your site's home page), select Insert, Web Components and then select Hit Counter. The various counter formats appear in the Choose a Counter Style list box. Select the one you want; then click Finish to open the Hit Counter Properties dialog box (see Figure 8.8).

You can choose from five display formats or select a custom GIF of your own design. Such a custom GIF must include a full set of the digits 0–9. Make sure the digits are evenly spaced; some adjustment might be necessary for best results.
