where to insert code Getclicky

  1. Hi- I have been doing some research on stat counters tonight, went to getclicky and registered. I am told that I have to enter their code into a text widget on the side bar or from my from the presentations--widgets. I am having a hard time deciphering the instructions below. Can some body help me understand what I need to do and where I need to introject the code? Thanks so much.

    <script src="http://getclicky.com/3207.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <noscript><p><img alt="Clicky" src="http://getclicky.com/3207ns.gif" /></p></noscript>

    WordPress
    If you are hosting wordpress on your own web site, or have the ability to edit the files directly, then you can put the code in any file that is used on any page automatically (such as sidebar.php). Otherwise, you'll have to put the Clicky tracking code into a text widget in the sidebar. More information on managing your blog and widgets is available on the wordpress.com web site. You can manage your widgets from the following area of your admin control panel: Presentation » Sidebar Widgets

    Note: several users have told us that wordpress doesn't allow external scripts to be included on their hosted wordpress.com blogs (e.g. myblog.wordpress.com). Two things of note:

    * We have quite a few wordpress.com blogs registered, and most of them are working fine.
    * You can still use Clicky to a limited degree without JavaScript, although it's not nearly as cool because we can't grab your visitor's referal info, and we can't grab the page titles. But if you want to use it that way, just use the image inside the "noscript" tags on your clicky code page. Be sure to NOT include the "noscript" part though, because you want every visitor's web browser to download that image, which will then be logged to your Clicky account!
    Example HTML: <img alt="Clicky" src="http://getclicky.com/12ns.gif">

  2. WordPress.com doesn't allow *any* java Script in thier widgets. it will eat it, and smile at you.

  3. You're using the wrong code. Use the code in the last line of your post per their instructions, which they supplied for WordPress.com blogs.

  4. In addition, I think that you have to delete"ns" so that /12ns.gif becomes /12.gif.

  5. RC Is this what you are making reference to in your statement?

    <img alt="Clicky" src="http://getclicky.com/12ns.gif">

    If it is, where should I copy and paste this code in my blog to get the best results, without java __ which I realize WP does not allow?

    I do not want to insert the code into the wrong widget or whatever and mess up up my whole blog. If you would, please be as specific as possible?

    Thank you!

  6. Use the code in the last line of your post per their instructions, which they supplied for WordPress.com blogs

    Follow the instructions of GetClicky's site for which code to use for WordPress.com, then put it in a text widget.

  7. Judy,
    Thanks for getting back to me. I am a traumatic brain injury survivor. The way that I learn is through direct answers to my questions. I still am unclear concerning their instructions or the answer that I received back from you and raincoaster. Please give me specific instructions as I DO NOT UNDERSTAND GET CLICKY'S INSTRUCTIONS...AS I MENTIONED IN MY ORGIONAL POST ABOVE.

    RC gave me some instructions and I was asking for clarity. If anyone can give specific clarity, as presented to RC in the following questions, please help me? Thank you.

  8. Paste the code right into a Sidebar Text widget.

    Try this: <p><img alt="Clicky" src="http://getclicky.com/12ns.gif"></p>

  9. Craig,

    sorry. You need to put a text widget into your sidebar, which you should be able to do under Presentation->Sidebar Widgets. Just drag one from the bottom and drop it wherever you want the GetClicky stuff to show up. Click on the little white box with the lines in it on the widget to open the widget settings. Next, copy and paste the code that GetClicky gave you -- i suspect it will be more than what you have posted here, since that only gives you an image -- into the widget. Click on the "x" in the upper right corner of the box, and save your changes.

    As far as the code from GetClicky, i don't think we're able to tell you what it should be, because it will be customized for your account. Look for the wordpress.com instructions that GetClicky gives you, and copy & paste all of the code they give you in that section.

    If you need more help, give us a link to a screenshot of the instructions from GetClicky, and we should be able to see what's going on.

    I hope this helps. Sorry i was short with you earlier :-)

  10. The 12ns is the customized part of the code.

  11. Now this is what you really need to insert to get clicky to begin tracking correctly:

    <p><a href="http://getclicky.com/12" target="_blank"><img alt="Clicky" src="http://getclicky.com/12.gif"></p>
    <img alt="Clicky" src="http://getclicky.com/12ns.gif">
  12. Hi Judy and Disembedded,
    I appreciate your help. I am not sure if it matters which widget that I place the code from getclicky according to what you shared. I have alot of different widgets that are in my side bar. Which one to chose???

    Disembedded: above you gave me:
    Try this: <p><img alt="Clicky" src="http://getclicky.com/12ns.gif"></p>

    And then in the next 2 post entries you give me 2 other ideas to consider:
    The 12ns is the customized part of the code.

    and then:
    <p><img alt="Clicky" src="http://getclicky.com/12.gif"></p>
    <img alt="Clicky" src="http://getclicky.com/12ns.gif">

    I am confused at to which code to put in which widget. I do not want to TRY something and it cause my blog to flatline. Thanks for specificity here friends.

    Craig

  13. The last code that I posted is the best one; use that. It's the code that I have on my blog that makes Getclicky work just fine. It will give you the clickable widget, plus insert a tracking code. Paste it just as it is in my last response (I customized it for your blog) into a sidebar TEXT widget.

    If you'd like, you can see it in my right sidebar on my blog. Find it and click--you'll see that it's working.

    Also, don't worry, trying it out can't mess up your blog. If you find it doesn't work or isn't working, just go back to the widget and erase the code. That's all--no damage, no problem.

    Remember--use the code that I posted for you in my last response.

    I'm going to take a nap, so you're on your own for a while. Remember: "God helps those who help themselves."

  14. Thanks so much for getting back to me my friend. Like the song says, I get by with a little help from my friends. You Rock.

  15. One last question: Does it matter which widget I place the get clicky code or do I need to use a specific widget?

  16. There is only one kind of widget you can put it in and it's called a text widget. Mark has provided excellent illustrated instructions in the FAQs for using text widgets http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/12/24/using-the-text-widget/

  17. Thanks so much Timethief. I found it in the Presentation>>Side Widgets. Low and behold it was in the list. I had not seen it before. Can I put other codes from other places like getclicky in that Text 1 area in the future, say if I want to add another counter or feedreader? Thanks for your patience and help.

  18. I entered the code that you gave me disembedded into the Text 1 widget and opened my get clicky site and nothing is showing up, stat wise. There does not appear to be an indication on my site, that points to getclicky as there is on your site that you pointed me to. Have I done something incorrectly. Help me learn. Thanks.

  19. I simply listened to raincoaster's podcast http://raincoaster.com/2007/02/24/stats-the-forbidden-love/ and made notes in the comment box on what I heard.

    I do not use "getclicky". I have sitemeters on all my blogs and they are all I need.

    I follow the FAQs instructions to create text widgets and to fill them with text and/or images. Provided that you have positioned the text widget in your sidebar by dragging it out of the available widgets box and dropping it into the sidebar widgets box, correctly followed the instructions and inserted the correct code into the text widget as disembedded told you and then clicked "save changes", it should be working.

    If not then I'm sorry but I have no further help I can offer you.

  20. I am sorry for the multiple posts as I have tried to figure this out. I found out what I had to do, and got the getclicky thing in my side bar on my site. This is a good sign. It will be good to see how getclicky shows my stats. Thanks again disembedded for the clarity and the code. Helped me volumes. Have a good weekend.

  22. Hello. It is me again. Thanks for your patience. I entered the code, got the getclicky box on my blog near the bottom right side of my blog. I have clicked on getclicky shortcut and am taken to their page. I login and look for my stats. Nothing has shown up all evening. Very curious to me. Got any ideas disembedded?

    I still have stile meter on my blog too. Is there a conflict between these two stat counters that is interfering with getclicky working. If so, how can I remove stile meter. In my newbiness I do not know where I placed stile meter's code.

  23. You generally have to have a stat counter up for 24 hours before it starts returning reports. I would give it some time. I don't know of any interference between GetClicky and Sitemeter, and think with the HTML version you're using on both you won't find interference.

  24. Hi Raincoaster,
    Thanks so much for getting back to me and the heads up. I thought I read in their literature that I would be able to receive stats about 10 minutes after I got set up and logged in with getclicky. It was like that with site meter. Interestingly, I have no stats whatsoever in get clicky. Do you think this is because of the weekend? I will keep you posted if no stats show up. Thanks again for your patience with me. Have a great Sunday.

  25. I think it probably means you've done something wrong with the installation. I wonder if they have help forums there that might have an answer for you.

  26. Hi Raincoaster,
    Got in touch with Sean of Get Clicky and he gave me the correct code. I am up and running. Thanks for all your help.

  27. So, what IS the correct code? I'm sure a lot of people are interested.

  28. Hi RC,
    Sean from GetClicky sent me this code. He also wanted me to know the below information.

    <img alt="Clicky" src="http://getclicky.com/3207ns.gif" />

    Remember that because you are using Clicky with a wordpress.com blog,
    we are very limited on the amount of information we can collect from
    your traffic. You won't be able to see any search terms that your
    visitors use to get to your site, and you won't be able to see
    referral links (e.g. that a visitor came to your blog via
    "somesite.com"). This is unfortunately a limitation of a wordpress.com
    blog.

    While we think our product is great, and you seem to as well from your
    dedication to get it working, I just want to warn you that you might
    be a bit disappointed.

    Sean

    RC, per your encouragement, I did some research and found a blog /site that gave me some insight into what is available stat counter wise out there and what those options provide. http://www.alexpooley.com/tag/getclicky . It was based on the information that I found at this site that I decided to give get clicky a look.

    Thanks for all your help in this stat counter search!

  29. Great, thanks for filling us in. Sean seems very helpful; maybe if there's enough demand WordPress will find a way to work with GetClicky in the future.

  30. You are welcome raincoaster...glad to give back. Hey can you please me. Check the new topics.
