Hit counter on site that uses Frames

I have a web page using frames.  The top part is Logo and Title and doesn't change.  The left middle section is Navigation links and doesn't change.  The bottom is contact info and modification date (again, doesn't change).  The right center section is the meat and potatoes and changes all the time depending on what link is clicked in the left middle section.  I want to put a hit counter in the bottom frame.

The problem I have is that I put a hit counter on the page that goes into this frame section and tested it out and >it doesn't update!<  Every time the site is visited it show the same count.  I can't put the counter on the central portion of the frameset, as this changes all the time during a single visit.

I thought that putting the counter at the bottom would only count when the page was initially loaded, so it would accurately reflect actual visits.  However, as I say, it isn't counting up at all...

HELP!

Thanks in advance,

The location of the counter is in a good location. You should have it in a frame that is only loaded when the entire page is loaded.

I built a page similar to your example and all works well. The counter is in the bottom frame and everytime I refresh the page it increments.

The problem with the counter not updating is most likely related to the Server Extensions.

First try removing the server extensions from the site and then reinstalling them.

The problem did indeed lie in the extensions.  Thanks!
