How do I add sitemeter

  1. how do i make it so that people can't see the numbers and only i can?

  2. Make it not public at SiteMeter's end.

  3. I have read through this whole section and still cannot get sitemeter to work on my page to show the button and it actually track. I have used sitemeter for other pages and it has worked fine, but there are problems getting it to show up on my page even though I added the link correctly on a separate category and everything. I like using wordpress but I don't understand the difficulty in getting it to show up on the page and actually work!

  4. Hmm, I just realized that we can no longer assign pictures to links. Well that kind of rots....

    Add in the link via a text widget.

    My code for my account would look something like this:

    <a href="http://s23.sitemeter.com/stats.asp?site=s23drmike"><img src="http://s23.sitemeter.com/meter.asp?site=s23drmike"></a>

    Hope this helps,

  5. I'm a newbie with three blogs. Two are regulus templates and one is andreas 09. I have installed site meters on all of them a month ago and all the site meters are working just fine.

  6. I have another suggestion for tracking counts and visitors to your WP blog.

    activemeter.com
    use the non-javascript code and paste it in one of the text widgets. It works fine for me :)

  7. Just to share that my sitemeter is working fine too. And I used Links rather than Text Widget.

  8. Am I to understand correctly that if I add sitemeter it will show hits but (since we can't use javascript) I won't be able to see what URL visitors came from? If that's so, I won't bother, since I can already do that with my statcounter account. (I guess that also explains why I can't get the "came from" and more detailed info from statcounter that I could get when I was on blogspot.)

    Also, I believe that on the sitemeter site it says you can only use the free account if is visible. That if you want your stats invisible, you must pay for the account.

    Would someone either confirm these understandings or correct them? If confirmed, I know to stop trying!

    Thank you!

  9. All you do to do to get confirmation is to type the URL into your web browser go to the site meter site and read their very clear instructions posted there. I use them on all my sites. No a free account does not get an invisble site meter and no you don't get the referring URL on a free account either. Is one worth having? I think so. Why because it gives me a great deal more information than the WP stats counters do.

  10. Just added Site Meter this morning. Just checked and it says my blog got 2 visits in the last few hours and 7 page views. Could someone please tell me what the difference is?

    Also, just checked my own blog stats. It gives 7 people as well. Well, I 'm only assuming it is people. Could be other beings/robots. ;-)

  11. I also checked my feed stats. It says 8. Now ain't that weird? I mean I only started posting this morning, I haven't given anybody a link to this blog yet. Have 8 people just been browsing thru wordpress and liked my first post? But then how did they subscribe to my feed? There's no RSS thingy(what is it called?) showing on my blog.

    It means just what it says. 2 visitors looked at a total of 7 pages. Could be that one visitor looked at 3 pages and the other looked at 4 pages, or one visitor looked at one page and the other looked at 6.

    Have 8 people just been browsing thru wordpress and liked my first post? But then how did they subscribe to my feed?

    All the feeds have the same setup here so it could be that one person found the feed and checked it 8 times.

    Why all the worry about this stuff, anyway? Is blogging only about stats? How about just having some fun?

    Just wanted to know whether I 'm talking only to myself or not. ;)

  14. Ohhh...and is it OK that I have this second account now? I mean calliope? I got it when I was frustrated for not being able to delete previous blog.

  15. Brand new member of WordPress here, so I'm still getting the feel for it vs. Xanga or Blogspot, but I was able to follow the instrux for adding Site Meter to my sidebar, and it works just fine here. Since I have WordPress host this blog for me, I had to follow the alternate instrux that Site Meter gave me, vs. the default javascript, but it wasn't exactly difficult.

    Thanks so much for keeping this thread active in the FAQ for newbies to WordPress like me.

  16. Also a new member here, trying to add Sitemeter without success. I've tried both the Links method (or rather, Bookmarks, as I don't have a "Links" option in my Admin toolbar), as well as the Text Widget option, following both the Sitemeter's and Drmike's revised instructions exactly.

    I can't get a counter or a graphic to show up. Could it be that the theme I'm using (Benevolence) or the fact that I'm on a mac using Firefox and/or Safari?

    Any help would be appreciated!

  17. Think I answered my own question; it worked in a different theme. Bummer. I guess I'll have to choose to keep the theme I like w/o Sitemeter, or switch themes.

  18. I tried to use it on blix theme and got no joy. Let's keep this thread going and get everyone to list which themes do not support a sitemeter so that issue can be addressed.

  19. Well, to make things more confusing, I re-registered my site at Sitemeter under a different codename and changed the title of my website on the registration form and for some reason, it worked (with the Benevolence theme). So I don't know what the deal is/was, but it's up and running now.

  20. I added Sitemeter to my blog and if you follow the instructions carefully there is no problem adding it either as a link or a text widget. I have the regulus theme. There are 2 versions of SM, one one free and one paid. You can use the free one, which gives considerable information, used with the WP blog stats, gives even more.

    You can't use the paid version, because it contains javascript which is not allowed on WP.com blogs. If you use the free version, you will see that javascript, for certain information, is disabled.
    note - there are instructions on SM to add it to WP, you need to read these and remember to set the options you want, for privacy, ignoring your own visits etc.

  21. britgirl I have used sitemeter on several themes. you will see this when you go back through the tread. most themes it works fine on regulus included. now we are trying to isloate only the themes where there may be sitemeter support problems.

    (1) i had a problem with blix. is there anyone out there who has a sitemeter on blix and no problems?

    (2) are there other themes out there that have site emeter problems?

    however the thread from the staff point of view is marked "resolved" so in essence we could be speaking into the mist.

  22. I know it works on regulus. Did read the thread. Was referring more to the javascript options - or lack of them whatever theme is used.

  23. however the thread from the staff point of view is marked "resolved" so in essence we could be speaking into the mist.

    I always start when I finish the previous day and work my way through. The library lost power yesterday so I didn't get much done then. Catch up day today. :)

    The Javascript option is not usable here as Javascripts are removed from all users input for security concerns. Reasoning and examples provided here.

    I changed my text blog over to Blix and I see the SiteMeter thingie fine within a text widget fine.

  24. Great! Blix it is. Tx.

  25. text widget also works with StatCounter html version. Too easy. thanks for the info.

  26. (I just saw yugyug's post above, but here are some more specific instructions).

    I have succeeded in adding a "StatCounter" button on my blog, using the widget mechanism. You also have to remove the following section from the code that Stat Counter provides you:

    <!-- Start of StatCounter Code -->
    <script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
    var sc_project=1688131;
    var sc_invisible=0;
    var sc_partition=16;
    var sc_security="1fafe9bb";
    </script>

    Add a text box widget, and just put the remainder of the code that StatCounter provides you in there.

  27. I just added Site Meter to my site and it was very easy. Site Meter has instructions to allow placement in a WordPress Blog.

  28. That's good to hear. :)

  29. Hi, I just installed an invisible StatCounter on "Quentin", the way junohenry
    describes and it works fine :0)Thanks, this has been very helpful

  30. Ok...what am I missing here? I tried to add sitemeter per the "add link in blog roll" instructions. No luck. All it does is show up as a url link and not the usual image icon.

    And, what's with the add as a widget option? I am unable to edit anything when I try to create a new text widget. All I get is a new box that says "text 1" but I can't modify the text.

    Argh...I haven't had trouble with sitemeter on other sites before.

    Thanks...
