QotD for 14 Feb., 2007

"A logically consistent Evangelicalism (if this is not an oxymoron) cannot allow for alternative points of view (or it collapses)."

David, off topic, but I see you are a technology person. I am trying to load a stat counter onto my blog, and I must put in an html code, but the page on blogger where I'm to put this does not have an edit function to copy and paste the code. I'm sure there's a way to do copy and paste without the edit tab, but I have no idea how to do it. I certainly can't type in that complicated code without making mistakes.

I'm not at all knowledgeable about technology, so if there's a way to do it, it will have to be simply explained to me.

Sure, I can try to help :) Need to know a few things:

1. I assume you're talking about a blog on blogger.com ? (yeah, I know... "duh," but I had to ask :)

2. Can you show me where you got the stat counter code ?

3. Can you tell me just where you'd like this counter to appear on your blog page ? (like at the bottom or wherever) ?

BTW, if you want to have this conversation via email, feel free to ask Fr. Jake for my addr (I just don't wanna post it our here "in the open" - get too many crank emails from "reasserters" already)

I'm using Blogger2 also. I want to put it on add a page element on the layout, at the bottom preferably. I had sitemeter, but it suddenly stopped working, and no one would respond to my request for help.

I want to try StatCounter. What do you think? I'm really messed up at sitemeter, since I'm now on my fifth or sixth username and password.

MadPriest has my email. I don't want to post it publicly either. I'll write to MP and ask him to send it to you if you ask. Will that be OK?

Grandmère Mimi said...

I wrote to MP, and asked him to pass on my email address if you asked.

I had asked Sitemeter to cancel my account, and I received word just now that it is cancelled.

Let me know if you think there is a better counter than Statcounter.

Here's something to try:

1. Goto the blogger.com Dashboard. Find your blog name and click the "Layout" link.

2. You should be in the "Page Elements" view where you can add and arrange page elements. You'll see a sort of block diagram of your blog's layout. Scroll down and click "Add a Page Element" in the block across the bottom.

3. A little dialog box window pops up. Select the "Add to Blog" button under the "HTML/Javascript" heading.

4. The dialog box window changes to "Configure HTML/Javascript." Paste your Statcounter code into the larger of the two fields (labeled "Content"). Enter a Title in the other field if it makes you (something like "Statcounter") and click "Save Changes."

5. Go see if it works :) (I searched on Statcounter's webpage and saw no mention of blogger.com good or bad)

I don't really know enough about Statcounter or it's competition to make a good suggestion, unfortunately.

How do I paste into the "Configure HTML/Javascript" box? That's what I don't know how to do. I am as far as copying the code, but how to paste when there is no edit function is where I stop.

Email sent (we can continue the conversation there if you'd like :)

David said...

BTW, the email addr you posted in your next comment was the one I used (MP sent it to me).

I didn't post that latest comment in order to protect your addr :)
