Hello Border Pcsolutions,

I am happy to report that the bug you were experiencing has been fixed and we will do all we can to prevent this from re-occurring in the future. If you do still see a problem, clearing your browser's cache will most likely take care of this: clearing cache.

Thank you very much for your patience while we worked on that and please let me know if you have any further troubles.

Go to www.hit-counts.com, choose a hit counter, and create an account at the bottom, it'll give you an HTML, copy it and add the custom HTML to your website, save it and you have a hit counter, and it adds one each time someone comes!

Louis Vuitton, a worldwide renowned brand, was an international French fashion house which was engaged to produce a wide range of products, such as leather goods, Louis Vuitton handbags trunks, garments, louis vuitton purse, jewelry, shoes, watches, accessories, sunglasses, and so on. Although the term Louis Vuitton is deeply rooted among people, it was originally referred to LV Malletier. It is well known for its iconic Louis Vuitton monogram and logo which symbolize an everlasting good reputation and wealth. This designer cherishes a large number of high-end products in the international fashion industry.

Dated from to the year of 1854, Louis Vuitton began to dwell on its legendary story in the world. It has its unique and thorough way to sell its products, in its own retail Louis Vuitton Outlet, high class shopping malls and even some small boutiques as well as online shopping. Day after day, year after year, Louis Vuitton continues to perform a fierce competition with those luxury brands such as Hermes, Versace, Burberry, Chanel, Gucci, Dolce &Gabbana, Christian Dior, Fendi, Coach and Prada.

Hi Robert

Thanks for this great tip. I am sure it will be useful to many people!

Some people have asked how they can track visitors without a visible hit counter, and Google Analytics is great for this. If you want a hit counter, however, then I suggest you try what Robert has recommended. You could also consider holding off on adding a hit counter until your site is attracting a steady stream of traffic as this will make your hit counter look more impressive!

We really appreciate it when our users share ideas that have worked for them!

Did you know that Widget Box, one of the widget galleries we have integrated with in SynthaSite, offers a several hit counter widgets? Here is the link: http://www.widgetbox.com/search?q=hit...

To add this widget to your site:
1) Drag and drop a Widget box icon onto your page (you will find it in the "widgets" folder)
2) Click on the link in the dialog that will take you to Widget Box and search for "hit counter"
3) Copy the code
4) Paste it into the SynthaSite dialog box

That's it! You will have a hit counter for your site!

Yeh good, but what really puts me off using widgets like that is the 'get widget' buttons on the bottom of the widget. Would it be possible for Yola to do a deal with widgetbox to remove this button when it goes through the Yola builder? Just an idea!

Hi Winston,
Truste should have provided you with some HTML code to place into the dialogue box that pops up when you place the Truste Widget on your site. Do you have some HTML code from Truste?

I installed a guestbook this morning. I had some trouble but it seems to be installed now. I tried installing it on my contact page. That did not seem to work. So I created another page and installed it and now Guestbook appears on all the pages. I don't know whether that is gonna stay that way or not but feel free to visit my site and leave a comment. I would like to make it so folks could add to my link library if they wanted to.

Also...the first link in my link library is drum columbus. I can not get that into an official link no matter what I try. Let me know what you think. I have checked out many sites here and I am impressed. I will happy to sign your guestbooks if you have them. I realize this may be off topic...but attracting people to your site is one thing and getting them to sign a guestbook might tell you more about what you need to know...ya know?

Love it, I can't believe all the help I can get for free with you guys!!

I added a counter to my site www.funkyheartgallery.com and think I've done it right. Please fell free to check out my site (you know I'm going to get all excited when my counter is more than zero!!!)
Also, I read in your help section to add a Digg button to my site to increase chances of traffic. This isn't against their rules is it? Would it only be against their rules if I submitted my site myself??? Not sure..can you help?

Cheers funkyheart

Fabulous site! I was excited to see that you have your photo gallery with clickable thumbnails working really well. I can see that you have put a lot of work into your site.
Adding a Digg button to your site is not against their rules. Here is a link to Digg tools: http://digg.com/tools/integrate

I am glad you like SynthaSite and were able to find the help you needed. The more people ask questions and share ideas, the better the help becomes, so please feel free to post something any time you like. If you ask a question, chances are someone else also needs the answer. If something has worked well for you, please share it so that others can benefit!

Hi there,

When i try and add the Google Analytics code using the HTML widget on my page i get the following error message:

oops, an error has occurred with your javasript code. Please check your code,

I am using the HTML code which i copied off the google analytics website:

Any ideas how i can get this to work on my synthasite webpage?

Thanks,

Ben.

I'm having difficulty with the process described up top. When I paste the code from Google Analytics into the HTML widget and try to save I get the message: "Oops! An error has occurred with your pasted javascript code. Please check your code." The code shows up in the source when I load the page, but the error message is disconcerting.

Hi jld

Sorry about the disconcerting error message. This is a known issue. Google Analytics Embed Code sometimes causes a JavaScript error on Drop. Workaround: Click the "OK" button in the error dialog, save your page, navigate to another page or create a new page, navigate back to the page where you've embedded Google Analytics and you should no longer get the error. NOTE: If you clear your cache, this error may reappear. It should not cause any trouble with your stats however.

I think you mistakenly put the wrong link... Try again

open your page in a new tap and copy that address to the comments so that we can all see your site...

Noticed this thread being bumped up a few times over
the last few days.

Have a look at the following tutorials and they
should guide you through seemleslly.

How can I tell how much traffic my site is getting?

How do I verify my site with Google Webmaster?

How do I add a sitemap?

Follow them to the letter and you should not have any problems.

Hello All, Just read the the thread regarding getting google analytics on. I have set up google and put the code in the HMtL widget at the bottom.I got the code error like others have in the past.I followed the instruction someone gave to navigate away from the page then go back and this does allow me to then put the code in.I entered the code on all my pages using this method.However when I click back on the HMTL widget at the bottom of my pages as if I am going to edit it again the Google code has disappeared? And just the previous one line code is there? This doesn't seem right? I then updated my site and clicked on the link to go on it and it says cannot find page? Is this normal as my site is getting updated and if so,how long before my site goes back on "live" The site is www.wewillfinditcheaper.com
Thanks

Your site is back on "live" Morgan.
I can see it and the Analytics code seems correct on all your pages.
Try refreshing your browser..to see your site again.

Cheers, I see its back on. One thing though,the home page sometimes loads and all the colour has gone off my design and the page headings are just listed.It just looks completely basic.Then when I navigate away and back again it goes ok? Is this common?

I get the same thing sometimes...dunno?
Just gotten so used to refreshing the page than trying to find out why.
I think it's a browser cache problem.. never botherd to investigate.
Doesn't happen often enough to be an issue to me.

And if you have been to my site my analytics still shows 0 hits.Does google analytics update immediately or not? If not, how long before it updates after a visit?
Thanks again

Google Analytics is always about 24Hrs behind.
If you are looking for more "real time" stats try out http://www.ewebcounter.com/

Once you have created a free account, just copy the code
they provide you with and past it in an HTMl widget just above
your Google code. If you decide to go with it tell me and I'll
visit again so you can see where I'm from.

That one comes courtesy Ed.

P.S. Google Analytics is a very powerfull tool, once you get to know
and understand the stats it provides you with. Don't delete it.

google analytics is a really simple to use feature, sometimes hit counters give false readings, if you are paying per click advertising you need to be sure that they are real, a hit counter wont tell you this. I have built our site with synthasite it is wonderful, keep up the good work. Have a look at us www.policyrenewal.co.uk we are a team of insurance advisors based in the UK. Thanks
