    I using Hit Counter plug-in...

    is there any possibilities to place the counter in template directly wherever we want?

    Thanks with regards,

    You can use some plugin like this one: or call this widget via shortcode:



    When you put this code in your function.php simply use this shortcode:

    [widget widget_name="wHitCounter"]

    and your Hit Counter should appear... ;)

    Cheers ;)

    Usually I don't like to modifying a plugin directly because when you update the plugin you have to be careful or you'll overwrite your code, however I do feel this is an enhancement to the plugin and I have a custom set of digits anyway - so I don't really think it matters at this point. If you'd like to add shortcode functionality to the plugin, the process is very simple:

    • Navigate to your plugins folder > wordpress-hit-counter
    • Open image.php and add the following function right before the ?> close: http://pastebin.com/79BSjikg
    • Save your file

    *If you'd like to add it to a page just use the shortcode: [wHitCounter]

    *If you'd like to add it to your template, wherever you'd like to see the counter use the following code: <?php echo do_shortcode("[wHitCounter]"); ?>

    Simple as that! Hope it helps :-)
