    how do i make a counter?

    hi there chaps,
    i'd like to make my own basic counter for my website.
    does anyone have any suggestion as to how i go about doing it?

    i mean can you do it just in javascript? or do you need to have some kind of server side scripting language to do it?

    does anyone have a link to a "make your own counter" tutorial or anything?

    thanks

    BuzzFuttock.

    Yo Buzz,

    I believe I am correct in saying that you would need to use a server side scripting technology such as asp or php etc as you would need to write each hit or whatever to a file and you cannot do that in javascript.

    Anyone please feel free to correct me or back me up

    it may be possible to do with js, but it would be much easier with a server side language. Try posting this in one of the ss forums (php, asp, perl etc.)
