    I searched the forums for the solution but I just don't know how to use clicky (www.clicky.com) with WordPress (used version: 2.1).
    They say to use widgets, but I just don't have an idea what to do: http://getclicky.com/help#16

    From Clicky's site:

    To use Clicky with a WordPress blog, you have to put the Clicky code into a text widget in the sidebar. More information on managing your blog and widgets is available on the wordpress.com web site. You can manage your widgets from the following area of your admin control panel: Presentation ยป Sidebar Widgets

    From reading Clicky's site, it looks like you need to use a "Text" widget. So you go to your "Sidebar Widget" link under the "Presentation" link. Then you drag a "Text" widget to the "Sidebar". Then you click the little blue box in the right side of the "Text" widget. Clicky's site then says to paste the code they gave you inside the "Text" widget. That should be it. Hope this helps

    Thanks for you quick answer!
    This means I have to enable widgets for my WP? Isn't it a big thing to enable widgets to be able to add just one line to the sidebar.php?
    Isn't it possible just to add this <script> line provided by clicky to the sidebar.php directly?

    (btw, what's the way to activate widgets? Do I need the widget file from automattic.com?)

    Yes, in order to use widgets you do need to use automattic's sidebar widget plugin. I'm not sure about putting the code directly into the sidebar.php. It might work. Try it out and find out what happens. Is there a lot of code?
