The Site Footer Code box in the Modify Site Preferences section was specifically designed for such applications, so that's a very easy and effective way to add code like a counter to all pages on your site. If you wanted it such that no other user could modify it, you could also add it directly to the template.

request for assistance with counter codeOctober 23, 2007 @ 9:11pm
Where can I place this counter php code within the template you mentioned earlier. (3rd party php counter)Not having any luck. All of my pages do not have process php checked. So I was hoping to include this in the template.

Heres the code:

$sid="123456";
include("/home/mysite/public_html/traffic/write_logs.php");

template.php or template_info.php? also what line please.

thanks for any suggestions.

It's template.php. The template_info.php file doesn't contain any of the template, just basic information to identify it in places like the Control Panel's list of templates. Where exactly in template.php depends on the template you're using and if the counter is printing any HTML code into the page. At the very bottom of the file you'll see the } brace that ends the BuildTemplate function, it needs to go somewhere inside that.

The other option is to put it in a block, that would also easily get it on all pages and could be PHP enabled.
