Hit Counters on Every Page

I have a large web site hosted on http://www.freeservers.com They
allow hit counters on every page - the stats being stored in one file
- fpcount.js My site is over 10 years old, and many pages have hits in
the thousands. However recently I've noticed that some counters have
been reset to zero. I investigated and found that over the years the
fpcount.js file has become corrupt. Although I pay Freeservers to host
the site all enquiries to their Customer Service about the corruption
of the hit counter feature are ignored. Therefore I am seeking a
commensurate service. I have tried FP Hit Counters but it seems that I
can only have one - say on the home page. Also it doesn't seem
possible to set the cointer to say start at 5000 (which is where the
previous counter got reset to zero). Is there a service somewhere on
the web - perhaps provide dby MS or maybe supported by a server
running FP Extensions etc. Many thanks - Chris Brady.

The FrontPage hitcounter can be placed on every page - it creates a unique counter file in the _private folder for each page, and each can be set to start at any number you wish.
However, my experience of the FP hit counter is that it is not reliable, and in my opinion hit counters are so last century.

The hit counter requires FrontPage extensions on the server.
Open a page in FrontPage, then Insert->Hit Counter
To set the counter, open the _remote_ site in FrontPage (not the site on your PC), then open the _private folder.
Open the appropriate .cnt file and edit the number shown - do NOT change the number of digits. Save and close the file.

If you are looking for statistics, then try Google Analytics - this will tell more than you want to know about your site and visitors.  But it will start at 0.

Me I like http://www.pax.com/free-webmaster-tools.html Counters
But I not not like their Site Search is why I go with http://www.free.com 
for that!
I do not like http://www.freeservers.com/ free web pages is why I Go to My 
PC with a Web Server by NetworkActiv
Running my own PHP and MySql from my PC
with a Free SUB DNS ... like www.minpin.ath.cx Host by  DynDNS.org ... for 
free ..
I pay comcast $28 a mouth Why would have a for free Sub Host Name by 
http://www.free.com and get no CGI, PHP, and running FP Extensions ... when 
I can have it all now on my PC <<Hmm

Thank you for the help. I have managed to log in to my web site with
FP. I now have one page with a FP counter on it - just to see how it
works. It started at zero. I couldn't get it to start on anything
else.

Also I have managed to open my web site on the Freeservers server. But
when I looked in _private folder (at the web root) there was nothing
there!!! So where is the cnt file please? I guess there must be at
least one!!

I have tried Google Webmaster / Analytics and that's a very good
service.

AND the FP hit counter does not seem to change from '1' -

See: http://chrisbrady.itgo.com/canals/pamela.htm

This page also does not seem to have any _private folder associated
with it, and certainly no cnt file.

What am I doing wrong please?

The _private folder should be located at
http://chrisbrady.itgo.com/_private

I can see nothing wrong with the code on the page, but cannot access the _private folder - this is NOT a problem, I should not be able to access the _private folder.

As I said, I have found the hit counter to be unreliable.

To set the initial count - open http://chrisbrady.itgo.com in FrontPage, then either:
1) Open the _private folder, open the .cnt file in FrontPage and change the number shown - do NOT change the quantity of digits - then save the file.
Or
2) Open the page and right click the hit counter.
Choose "FrontPAge Component Properties"
Tick the box "Reset counter to" and type in the number to start at.
Save the page.

If the counter does not increment - it should every time you refresh the page - then you may have to ask your host to investigate.

Thank you again. Yes I do have a folder _private in the root of the
web on the server. BUT is has only one file in it =3D something.txt - it
is empty. There is no .cnt file there. And the folder /canals does not
have a _private folder either. I am quite happy to create such a
folder and .cnt file by hand - since FP doesn't seem to want to - but
I don't know the format. I'd also like to change the graphic of the
counter to something more resembling the default font for the page
(aka FP Theme). Cheers - Chris B.

The _private folder is the one you found in the root of the site, there should NOT be a _private folder in the canals folder - unless this is a subweb.

Try opening the remote site, remove the hit counter on pamela.htm
Save the page, then insert a new counter.
If this does not create the .cnt file in the _private folder (in the root of the web), then there are other problems that your host will have to solve.

Go to http://www.95isalive.com/fixes/HitMeFP.htm and download the program described there. This will generate a custom hit counter image based on your own settings (font, size colours, etc.)

Thank you yet again for your help. I will have a go at buidling my own
counter graphic. And I'll have a go at the hints above for the
_private folder. Freeservers is suposed to support FP Extensions so
I'll have to consult with them if things don't work. My site is a
'paid for' site after all.

Meanwhile if hit counters are so last century what do advise as an
alternative. Google Analystics is a bit too detailed for me!!

Just downloaded HitMeFP as an exe file, ran it and got the following.
I'm using Win 7 on an Acer netbook.

Run-time error: 339:
Comp[onent CMDLG32.OCX or one of its dependenties not correctly
registered; a file is missing or invalid.

I'll try it on my main XP laptop tonight.

I have now found a 'canal' folder in the _private folder with a .cnt
file in it. So far so good!!

And I've made a gif file and put it into _private. Then embedded it
into my page, then uploaded the page and gif file to my website. But
it doesn't work for some reason. I used relative addressing too.

Am getting there.

Ok - final problem is where does the custom.gif file go please?
Wherever I put it all I get is a red cross and 'Hit Counter'

The code in the page with the counter is:

<!--webbot bot=3D"HitCounter" i-image=3D"5" i-digits=3D"0"
PREVIEW=3D"&lt;strong&gt;[Hit Counter]&lt;/strong&gt;" u-custom=3D"images/
counter.gif" i-resetvalue=3D"0" startspan --><img SRC=3D"_vti_bin/
fpcount.exe/chrisjbrady/?Page=3DTestPage.htm|Custom=3Dimages/counter.gif"
ALT=3D"Hit Counter"><!--webbot bot=3D"HitCounter" endspan i-
checksum=3D"54260" -->

Additonally the file fpcount.exe is in the folder _vti_bin

The above pertains to the client side running FP, and web server
side.

But the counter doesn't work. The contents of the file
TestPage.htm.cnt never changes.

It seems that the file fpcounter.exe does not action anything.

Just tried using direct addressing to a custom gif file - which
doesn't work either - and this is the code:

<!--webbot bot=3D"HitCounter" i-image=3D"5" i-digits=3D"0"
PREVIEW=3D"&lt;strong&gt;[Hit Counter]&lt;/strong&gt;" u-custom=3D"http://
chrisbrady.itgo.com/images/counter.gif" i-resetvalue=3D"0" startspan --
><img SRC=3D"_vti_bin/fpcount.exe/chrisjbrady/?Page=3DTestPage.htm|
Custom=3Dhttp://chrisbrady.itgo.com/images/counter.gif" ALT=3D"Hit
Counter"><!--webbot bot=3D"HitCounter" endspan i-checksum=3D"60459" -->

Also I tried using FP gif file (no. 4) - which also doesn't work - and
this is the code:

<!--webbot bot=3D"HitCounter" i-image=3D"3" i-digits=3D"0"
PREVIEW=3D"&lt;strong&gt;[Hit Counter]&lt;/strong&gt;" u-custom i-
resetvalue=3D"0" startspan --><img SRC=3D"_vti_bin/fpcount.exe/
chrisjbrady/?Page=3DTestPage.htm|Image=3D3" ALT=3D"Hit Counter"><!--webbot
bot=3D"HitCounter" endspan i-checksum=3D"48824" -->

I think that the 'bug' is the line:

SRC=3D"_vti_bin/fpcount.exe/chrisjbrady/?

This is referencing a path on the server that does not exist. On the
server there is a _vti_bin/ folder in which there is the bin file
fpcount.exe

However the reference to chrisjbrady/ comes from the folder in which I
am using FP to building the web on my D: (data) drive. This
arrangement is not replicated on the server. The label 'chrisjbrady'
does not exist on the server. The web on the server is http://chrisbrady.it=
go.com

For executing fpcounter.exe the path is:

http://chrisbrady.itgo.com/_vti_bin/fpcount.exe

I think that I need to remove the chrisjbrady/ from the code on the
server - but I'm not sure how it got there or how to stop it
appearing.

Please can someone advise. Thank you - Chris Brady.

Open http://chrisbrady.itgo.com in FrontPage - this is the site on the server, not on your D: drive.
Open the page with the hitcounter
Remove the hit counter
Save the page.
Insert a new hit counter
Save the page

Check if it works.
Since you are editing ON THE SERVER there is no chance that your folder on your hard drive can be involved.

OK - I reduced the HTML of the version on the server from

<!--webbot bot=3D"HitCounter" i-image=3D"3" i-digits=3D"0"
PREVIEW=3D"<strong>[Hit Counter]</strong>" u-custom i-resetvalue=3D"0"
startspan --><img SRC=3D"_vti_bin/fpcount.exe/chrisjbrady/?
Page=3DTestPage.htm|Image=3D3" ALT=3D"Hit Counter"><!--webbot
bot=3D"HitCounter" endspan i-checksum=3D"48824" -->

to this

<!--webbot bot=3D"HitCounter" i-image=3D"3" i-digits=3D"0"
PREVIEW=3D"<strong>[Hit Counter]</strong>" u-custom i-resetvalue=3D"0"
startspan --><img SRC=3D"_vti_bin/fpcount.exe/?Page=3DTestPage.htm|
Image=3D3" ALT=3D"Hit Counter"><!--webbot bot=3D"HitCounter" endspan i-
checksum=3D"48824" -->

That is I removed the [chrisjbrady/] from the path, and the counter
worked at last.

So now I only have about 100 pages to modify.

However thanks for everyone's help and support.

I'm using Publisher 2003 for our department newsletter. Most of our agents do not have Publisher so I need to either email the newsletter as the body of the email or as an attachment they can open. I have figured out how to both put it in the body and save as another type of file however, the newsletter is 3 pages long and when I use either of these options, it only does the page selected not all three. Can you help me? Thank you so much! Use .pdf files. -- JoAnn Paules MVP Microsoft [Publisher] "Sheila" <Sheila@discussions.microsoft.com> wrote in message...

Is there a way to limit access to a page in Excel to one person?
Is there a way to limit who has access to a page created in Excel to only the people who need to have the access? Like perhaps to put a block on it?? Or fix it so that you have to have a password to gain access to the particular page?? Any help would be greatly appreciated. What do you consider as a "page"? What is printed out is usually referred to as a page or pages. Perhaps you are referring to a particular worksheet. If a worksheet, you could hide the sheet under Format>Hide>Sheet then Protect the Workbook under Tools>Protection>Protect Workbook and enter a ...

Hit Counters on Every Page
I have a large web site hosted on http://www.freeservers.com They allow hit counters on every page - the stats being stored in one file - fpcount.js My site is over 10 years old, and many pages have hits in the thousands. However recently I've noticed that some counters have been reset to zero. I investigated and found that over the years the fpcount.js file has become corrupt. Although I pay Freeservers to host the site all enquiries to their Customer Service about the corruption of the hit counter feature are ignored. Therefore I am seeking a commensurate service. I have tried FP...

Web page-from Pub to Front Page
Hello, I want to convert a doc made in Publisher 2000 to a web page that I can put in Front Page. I tried save as web page and then opened it in FP but the text was all over the place and overlapping. Is there a specific way to do that so that I can work with the text in the paragraphs they were in? Thanks, Catt Nope. If you were to browse our forum at - microsoft.public.publisher.webdesign - you'd find threads where I strongly discourage Publisher customers from trying to use FP with a Pub web. If you are wanting to switch from Pub to FP you should re-design it in FP. David Bartos...
