Troubleshooting

NOTE: If StatCounter CODE instead of a StatCounter COUNTER is being (incorrectly) displayed on your website, then you may need to configure the "Input Formats" of your Drupal website. Here's how:
  • Under the "Admin" menu, click "Administer" then "Site Configuration" then "Input Formats".

    Drupal - Administer

  • Make sure that your default format is set to "Full HTML" then click "configure" beside the Full HTML option.

  • UNcheck the box beside "HTML Corrector" then click "Save Configuration".

  • Your StatCounter should now be correctly displayed on your site.
