Code Inserter guide
To use the Site Stats Code Inserter, follow these 10 simple steps:
- If you already have a copy of your web site on your PC, please skip to step 4.
- Access your web site files by using an FTP program, web page based interface, or your hosting administrative interface.
Note: You will need your FTP username and password to access and
modify your web site files. If you do not have this information,
ask your hosting company or the person who designed your web site.
If you have never modified your web pages before, you should down-
load an FTP program from http://www.download.com (search for "FTP").
- Create a copy of the web pages you would like to be tracked by Site Stats in a separate folder. Make a new folder if necessary.
Note: This is an important step to ensure that if you make an error
later on, you have copies of your web pages to replace any that are
lost or damaged.
- Download and save the Code Inserter Program (size 1.5MB) to your PC desktop.
- Double click the program icon on your desktop then click "Next" to install the Code Inserter Program. After you have installed it, click "Start" then choose "Programs" to run the Code Inserter.
Note: You are now ready to add the required Code to your copied web
pages and then to replace these pages on your web site with the ones
that have the Code installed.
- Click the "Browse..." button then use the drive and folder lists to select the folder in which you saved a copy of your web pages. Be sure to double click on your selected folder, then click "OK".
- Click "Next" to move to the next step - a list of your web pages. Select the web pages you want to modify, then click "Next" again.
- Enter your web site number (your unique 5 digit web site identifier) in the empty text box, then choose a web protocol. For most web sites this should be "Normal". Select whether you wish to insert or remove the Code in your files.
- Click "Next" to modify the Code in each of the web pages you selected in the previous step, then click "Close" to finish.
- Use your FTP program (or other web site interface) to upload the changed pages to your web site.
Note: Now your web site will contain your tracking Code, enabling Site Stats to collect and compile detailed reports about your web traffic!
This program should only be used by registered Site Stats users who have
received a web site number. To become a registered Site Stats user, please
sign up for a free trial.
