Hello,

I added a counter on my html page and it always stay at '1' instead of auto-incrementing everytime when someone visits my page. Why? Also, can I make this counter invisible?

Thanks.

The issue with the counter sounds like FP Server Extension problems. Try removing and reinstalling the server extensions.

Here is Microsoft's version of a hidden counter:

SUMMARY
This article describes how to create a custom hit counter that will not be visible in your page, and how to obtain the hit count information from the Web page.
Inserting an Invisible Counter
To insert an invisible counter, use one of the following methods:
Format the Hit Counter as "Hidden":
On the Insert menu, point to Component, click Hit Counter, and then click Finish.
Select your options, and then click OK.
Highlight the Hit Counter on your page, click the Format menu, and then click Font.
Check the Hidden box, and then click OK.
Create an "Invisible" Custom Image:
Use an image editor, such as Microsoft Image Composer, to create the image you want to use for the hit counter. This could be either a transparent image, an image with the same color as the background of the page, or an image with a width and height of 1-pixel.For additional information on creating a custom hit counter image, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
