I'm sorry to be such a pain, but here's what I did, using Cute FTP home edition. I went to the Tamba web site, changed the CHMOD settings to 766 by checking read, write execute under "owner."
Then in the next step of the tutorial, there was something about "Hidden Files" which I don't understand. When I clicked Edit from the top left tool bar there was no option Hidden Files for "Filter." But there was an option under "View" so I clicked on that. I got the following screen:
Enable Filtering was checked.
Then, under "Server Side Filtering, I check off the box for "Enable Server Side Filtering." And in the box next to "Remote Filter" I typed in -a.
But it's still not letting me copy and paste the Sitemeter code into the footer php screen in my Themes section under wp-admin.
Any suggestions you have will be greatly appreciated.
