How do I set up counters?

Easy. First pick a filename for your counter data (it should be something like 'username-countername.dat'). So if your NDN ID is john and your domain is doe.com your filename selection could be:

"john-doe.dat"

Next, pick which font you want to use for your counter (it should be something like '&dd=XXXX&istrip=XXXX'). Select a font from the images located here:

For example, if you like the groovy purple font called Katt078, your font selection would be:

"&dd=katt078&istrip=T"

So now just put your filename and font selection in the proper place of the template example. The final source to cut and paste would be:

<img src='http://counter.dreamhost.com/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?df=john-doe.dat&pad=F&ft=0&dd=katt078&istrip=T'>

It is imperative that the .dat file name be double-barrelled. For instance, john.dat will NOT work, it has to be john-doe.dat
