I know a good way, but it would involve turning EVERY page in your site to ASP....probably not practical for you at this point.

You are using FP's hit counter right?

You could try doing it with include files.

Just the same way you included your other pages, witht he FP include feature (not the ASP way) and include each .cnt file.  They are really just text files.

OR

Write a page called counter.asp in the root of your web.

In html mode use this:

Page1 <!--#include file="_private/foldername/filename.htm.cnt"-->

Page2 <!--#include file="_private/foldername/filename.htm.cnt"-->

You will need to change the Page1/2 to reflect something meaningful...the actual title of the page the counter is on.

Try it and let me know what happens.

You cannot.  You are including a text file...you need to include the whole file.

There is no way to truncate the text.
