Is your hit counter set correctly?

Here's a warning about the settings of your hit counter!

I was a bit confused about the settings of my hit counter! I had set it to "unique visitors" which meant that the counter would only register hits from a particular person/IP address just once - forever!

However, I thought that it would register that IP address again when they next logged on and visited again in another session. So the counter wan't recording when that person visited again! I was probably in my stupid mode again, but don't get caught out by this!

So now I've set it to record every visit to that page, even though it's a pain because it registers my visit every time I want to edit the page!

By the way, you can get a great hit counter from the widgetbox gallery. Just drag it onto your page and type "hit counter" into your search box. I chose the last one. You can see it in action on the bottom of the home page of my website;

Hi there Marky,

Thanks for the tip. This is often a point that is overlooked when adding hit-counters.
