|Run once only, not on refresh|
php counter problem
I have a PHP hit counter script that uses a flat file for a hit count, the problem is that if a user hit refresh the hit count goes up!
Is there a way to make this block of code execute one time only in some sort of IF stament?
I found include_once() but that was no help.
You could make a quick function that checks for a cookie, then if it is not present it sets one.
Then you increment your counter only if the cookie does not exist.
I thought of doing that after I made this post, and all is fine now!
