Adding a Counter to your web page
At the point of the page where you want the counter, place a command all on one line which looks like:
<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?ft=9|frgb=999;999;999|tr=9|
trgb=999;999;999|md=9|dd=A|sh=9|df=xxxxxxx" align=absmiddle>
Where:
ft = frame thickness (0 or greater) 0 = no frame
frgb = this will set the color of the frame, each number must be in the range of 0-255
tr = transparency (0=off,1=on)
trgb = these are the color values (0-255) that you want to make transparent
md = Defines the maximum number of digits, which must be between 5 and 10
dd = Digits directory which must be one of the following:
   A Digital numbers
   B Odometer numbers
   C Normal numbers
   D Small digital
   E Normal characters
   F Blue characters on white background
      (Special thanks to Nick Stenz)
sh = Show (0=no, 1=yes). Used to count the number of hits without actually displaying a counter.
df = This is the name of the counter file. You can only use the counter once a filename has been created. You can manage your counter files by loggin into: my.excel.net
Under the Control Panel click on Web Site and then Counter Management.
A few examples:

<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?ft=6|frgb=0;0;0|tr=0|
md=9|dd=A|sh=1|df=webtips"ALIGN=absmiddle>


<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?ft=3|frgb=255;255;255|
tr=0|trgb=001;000;000|dd=B|df=webtips" align=absmiddle>


<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?ft=7|frgb=255;000;000|
tr=0|trgb=001;000;000|dd=C|df=webtips" align=absmiddle>


<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?ft=5|frgb=000;000;000|
tr=0|trgb=001;000;000|dd=D|df=webtips" align=absmiddle>

More fun things you can do:
By adding rotate=Y, you can rotate your clock/date:

<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?ft=3|frgb=000;000;255|tr=0|
trgb=001;000;000|dd=F|tformat=24|df=webtips|rotate=Y" align=absmiddle>

Make a specific color transparent by knowing which color is transparent and adding tr=T and trgb=XXXXXX specific to the color you would like transparent, in this case, the white which is trgb=ffffff Note: The frame thickness (ft) was decreased to 0 in the following example

<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?ft=0|frgb=000;000;000|
tr=T|trgb=ffffff|dd=F|df=webtips" align=absmiddle>
Next, you can change the colors of the digits used in your counter. By adding srgb=XXXXXX|prgb=XXXXXX you can specify the color of the digits. srgb has to be set to the default of the color you would like to change, and prgb needs to be set to the color you want to change it to. In the following example, we used srgb=00ff00|prgb=ff00ff

<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?ft=5|frgb=000;000;000|tr=0|trgb=001;000;000|
srgb=00ff00|prgb=ff00ff|dd=D|df=webtips" align=absmiddle>
Then if you would like to add commas to your counter, all you have to do is add comma=T to your code. Note: your file must be larger than 3 digits for this feature to work so we assigned the number 1000000 to this counter.

<img src="/cgi–bin/Count.cgi?ft=9|lit=0123456789|comma=T|
frgb=69;139;50|tr=0|md=7|dd=B|sh=1|df=webtips"ALIGN=absmiddle>
Finally, if you want ALL of the information concerning this date and time program you can go to their site, which is located at: http://www.muquit.com/muquit/software/Count/Count.html
We are currently running version 2.4 and can support all of the features available in that version.
Please Note: Our counters are setup such that multiple consecutive hits from a single source won't "run-up" your counters, therefore giving a much more accurate count. Don't be alarmed if you hit the "refresh" button and your counter doesn't increase in number.
Resetting your Counter: If you would like to set your counter file back to 0 hits, visit our Tools web page and select Reset Your Web Page Counter.
