Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
I am trying to create a hidden counter. What would be the best way to create this. I know there are lots of scripts that I can use, but they are not easy to modify. I thought cgi would be the way to go but I am not sure. I want to maintain the number of hits for each page and then view them from a text file. So something like "URL of file : number of hits" should be stored in the file. Also when I include a cgi file to a .shtml page I get a 404 error, I don't know why?. I don't know how to get started or what would be the best way to create this. Thanks!
Alternatives? Well, you could always use a hidden image in your page to hit the other server with some type of query string that you could use to provide tracking.
