I added Statcounter on my blog by installing the code in the text widget sidebar. But it's not displayed properly on the site as apart from the Statcounter button there're also parts of the code being displayed on the site too.
I already checked this FAQ: http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/07/28/can-i-have-a-statcounter-on-my-blog/, but there's no information about Statcounter code installation there.
However when I tried to get HTML code from Statcounter it says the following:
[OPTIONAL - HTML Only Counter
So it would seems like Statcounter and WordPress are not really meant for each other, is that right? If that's the case can anyone recomment a WordPress-friendly counter that still offers the same features as Statcounter?
