Hi Barrie,

Actually there is a way to use the counter if you call the page from
another page in your space. Say for instance, you had a room
where you wanted to keep a count. Just add the count variable
to that page and when you call the page, use the link with the
var program specified.

For example:

{COUNT: countfile.txt} <- Would be on the room.html page called below
from your entrance page.


<a href="">Art Room</a>

would be listed on your entrance page. This room.html would have the counter.

Now one thing to keep in mind is that you have to use fully qualified
URL's to all links on the page that is called with the var program.
In this example, youe would have to use full urls to all links from this
page (ie:" )

Hopefully we will have the new server available soon so artists
can use counters on their entrance pages.

Let me know if you still have questions.
