Count 2.0 example page

This page is here to show how a counter can be configured for your webpage. The counter images you are seeing are previously generated with the described URL tags.

Do not look at the source of this file, look at the written URL tag.

The keywords in the query strings can be separated by & or |

Note: All of the tags end with "df=x.dat" This is a data file to store the count. In order for your counter to work on your webpage, replace the "x" with your "user name". This will set up a separate data file to record "hits" on your individual webpage.

Frame color and Thickness

A frame with a bluish color is wrapped by default. You have to use ft=0 no ignore this feature. <img src="/cgi-bin/Count2.cgi">
This may not work with all browsers. You should use at least one keyword in the query string (for example, df=data_file ). Random counter is displayed as no data file is specified. The default frame thickness, color and digit style is used. 
<img src="/cgi-bin/Count2.cgi?ft=1">
No df= option, therefore random digits are displayed. Because of ft=1 no frame was wrapped. 
 <img src="/cgi-bin/Count2.cgi?ft=6">
Random digits. Wrapped frame is with default color and thickness. 
 <img src="/cgi-bin/Count2.cgi?ft=10&df=x.dat">
Random digits. Wrapped frame is with default color and asked thickness. 
 <img src="/cgi-bin/Count2.cgi?frgb=ffd700&df=x.dat">
The wrapped frame is of the asked color and default thickness. The color is used as hex string. Note, DO NOT add # before the string as you use with Netscape. In query string, if you use a #, everything after # is ignored. So, be careful.

or you use can use the RGB triplets like:
    <img src="/cgi-bin/Count2.cgi?frgb=255;215;0&df=x.dat">

or you even use the color name. You have to add this support while you configure using the Count-config script.
    <img src="/cgi-bin/Count2.cgi?frgb=gold|df=x.dat">


<img src="/cgi-bin/Count2.cgi?ft=0|rotate=Y|df=x.dat"> <img src="/cgi-bin/Count2.cgi?ft=0&degrees=180|df=x.dat"> <img src="/cgi-bin/Count2.cgi?ft=0&degrees=90"df=x.dat>
The first counter is rotated default 270 degrees toward right, no anlge is specified as rotate keyword is used. 

Digit Styles

<img src="/cgi-bin/Count2.cgi?dd=A|df=x.dat">
<img src="/cgi-bin/Count2.cgi?dd=B|df=x.dat">
<img src="/cgi-bin/Count2.cgi?dd=B|frgb=69;139;116&df=x.dat">
<img src="/cgi-bin/Count2.cgi?dd=C|df=x.dat">
<img src="/cgi-bin/Count2.cgi?dd=D|ft=3|df=x.dat">
<img src="/cgi-bin/Count2.cgi?ft=2&frgb=000000&dd=E|df=x.dat">

These are the supplied digit styles. You can use digits from other sources. Just create a directory inside digits directory, rename the digits ro zero.gif, one.gif....nine.gif and use the directory name with dd. 

Negate the colors

<img src="/cgi-bin/Count2.cgi?netate=T&dd=A|df=x.dat">
Note that the digit color is negated but the frame is not.

Monitor counter hits

You might have kept your counter hidden (or not). You can monitor the hits from another page just specifying the datafile and the keyword incr=F
    <img src="/cgi-bin/Count2.cgi?incr=F|df=page1.dat">
    <img src="/cgi-bin/Count2.cgi?incr=F|df=page2.dat">
    <img src="/cgi-bin/Count2.cgi?incr=F|df=page3.dat">

Number of digits

Say you want to display the counter in 5 digits only.
    <img src="/cgi-bin/Count2.cgi?md=5|df=x.dat">

or you do not want to left pad with zero, you want to display exact digits.

    <img src="/cgi-bin/Count2.cgi?pad=0|df=x.dat">


You can display a digit string literally. <img src="/cgi-bin/Count2.cgi?lit=0123456789"> <img src="/cgi-bin/Count2.cgi?dd=B&lit=0123456789"> <img src="/cgi-bin/Count2.cgi?dd=C|lit=0123456789"> <img src="/cgi-bin/Count2.cgi?dd=D&lit=0123456789"> <img src="/cgi-bin/Count2.cgi?ft=0&tr=1&trgb=ffffff|dd=E|lit=0123456789">     

That's all folks! I hope you'll get enough clue from this page!
