Need help hiding with CSS

On this page:

at the very bottom of the page there is a little green image for GoStats. I want to hide it, but the code is generated by a plugin, and it is not in a div tag, or anything like that, so I can not get it to be be invisible with CSS. I would just use the display:none; command, but there is no tag to apply it to.

Any ideas?


There is HTML that is generated by the script. It’s an image… you could use CSS to target that (though you’d have to wrap it in a division since they didn’t give a more narrow way to target it like an ID).

However, that G is supposed to be there. It’s the condition under which they let you use it. As such, I’m not going to help provide any more details.

Thanks. I had a solution to do this before, provided right here on Sitepoint, by another member, but it does not work with this new theme. If anyone has a degree of moral flexibility, and has a solution that is simple, please advise.

I would suggest just removing it completely, your hosting provider should give you access to your stats so you can view your traffic count.

Anyway, the script may be setting the styles in an anonymous anchor but there is nothing stopping you from nesting everything in a div of your own.

You can use absolute positioning to remove it from the page flow and throw it offscreen with a negative value.

<div style="position:absolute; left:-99em">
    [COLOR=Red]nested stat counter here[/COLOR]

I tried to just wrap this all in <div id=“gostats”></div>, but no matter where I put that code, it breaks the entire site. Any advice?

Here is the code for the counter:
