So you want a counter on your web page? First, if you're not an HHMI/STI fellow or alum, please go somewhere else. No offense, but we're not supporting the whole Web here.
If you are an HHMI/STI fellow or alum, follow the following instructions:
- contact the Website administrator (currently Gavin LaRose) in some appropriate manner (e.g., by e-mail to glarose@NebrWesleyan.edu) telling
none of the following will work until that person has initialized the counter on the server
- who you are
- when you were an HHMI/STI fellow
- what your HHMI/STI username is and
- what page you want the counter for
- then put the counter in your page. this is done like any other image--except that the counting is actually done on the server, so we have to edit things a bit. the general form of the HTML to insert in your page (you will probably have to edit this by hand--in source mode if you're using a WYSIWYG editor like Pagemill):<img src="/cgi-bin/support/Count.cgi?df=name&option=value&option=value">The important parts of this are:
df=name: the value of

frgb=255;165;0in base ten or
transparency on/off you can set one color of the counter to be transparent; to do this, specify
tr=Y. if you do not also specify a color with trgb the default color black will be transparent.
