Hi, I currently use Dreamweaver and have a web counter on my website, but what script would I need to add in order for my own computer not to be included in the counting?  I assume this can be done only by my IP address?  Any answers are greatly appreciated

Cheers
Isla

Yes, very often counters can be configured to exclude specific IP addresses or groups of IP addresses.  It's really pretty easy to do from the counter script writer's point of view (I've done it before:), but not all counters support it for some reason...  What are you using for your counter?  That's where your solution will lie.  There should be some documentation about it there.  If you're writing the counter yourself, what programming language are you using?

If it is a free counter, you don't have much say in it. There are options though (like jbirk said).

Thanks, I've taken the counter from "myisp" in the uk.  I visited their website but found no info there.  If it's any help, the code is currently ...  

<img src="http://www.users.myisp.co.uk/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?ft=9|frgb=69;139;00|tr=0|trgb=0;0;0|wxh=15;20|md=6|dd=A|st=5|sh=1|df=isla-troy.dat" align="absmiddle">

Perhaps it's a better idea to build my own.  I'll pop off to try and find out how.  Is it difficult?  I'm currently just using dreamweaver as a way to  slowly learn html.  Thanks again for your help.  Cheers

Isla, depends whether you've got your own server fr this, if you have read / write permissions, then you can, otherwise you cannot.

Yep writing your own counter requires some kind of server side script which can write to files on the server.  If you do, report back what kind of access you have and we can help you find the right tool/possibly supply code for writing your counter.  Server side includes and perl are about the easiest possible way to do it that I know of.

Thanks very much to you both for your help, I'm afraid I do not have my own server (although am planning to find out how to get one) - I currently use ftp to upload to ntl.  Thanks again, I've been trying to figure this one out for a month!  Cheers

Is it possible to give points to CJ S as well?  You were both extremely helpful.

You'd have to open a new question for him.  Label it "For CJ_S" or something like that.
