Hey, everyone. Have a question for anyone who has experience designing websites.
I recently put together a website of photos of my son for his family to see. It's one of those Tripod/Lycos sites deals which didn't cost anything, so it's a fairly straightforward, no frills site. My one problem, though, is with the hit counter.
I installed one that Tripod had recommended and it turns out that anyone can see the IP address of visitors to my site. I tried (using my very limited HTML experience) to privatize that information, so that visitors DON'T know everyone who's logged on, but no luck. Same thing when I tried a completely separate hit counter.
So my question is this, any one know of a cheap (read: free) hit counter that will protect user's privacy, or at least make it only available to the webmaster (me)?
I can't blame the media for wanting to track this story, given that the last major blackout in NYC, in 1977, triggered a 25-hour spree of looting, arson, and general violence. Unfortunately, I don't have any terribly dramatic stories to tell.
