I notice there are “trophies” for achieving a certain number of unique visitors.

Not that I expect to achieve any of these any time soon (or maybe even ever!) but how can I tell how many uniques I actually have. As far as I can see, the stats only give numbers for page views.

I myself find those trophies incredibly odd. I would think that people like Amy, Oz, or Ink to have at least the “100” one, but no. Weird.

That's true. The award of certain trophies does seem to be fairly arbitrary. But my point was slightly different. It just strikes me that, if there is an award for uniques then something somewhere must be monitoring uniques …

In which case, how can we get to see our stats for those?

Yes, the system monitors uniques as well as hits but as of this moment there is not meter or counter for showing this. The only way to do it is by using a counter service… There are a lot of great free counter services available for that ^_^

Fair enough. I do use a free stats counter on my own website. If I wanted to use it with my DD comic, where would I input the code?

(I'm using the template rather than the custom page set-up).

Um, I don't think you can insert it into the template code… You really have to make custom templates (I think) in order to use stuff like that. But if you need ahead start with the HTML in the coding and HTML forum there are some template codes on offer (pretty good ones), as well as a list of Drunk Duck tags with descriptions about what they do if you want to make up your own custom page ^_^

One question for you though DAJM: You use Webbed comics! I do to but have no idea where to get the vote link code…. Could you tell me where I could find that? :)

Hmmm - they've changed things around a lot lately at Webbed Comics. I'd noticed the listings no longer had a “Vote” link on them as they used to, but I'd kind of assumed you'd be offered the code (i.e. to add a button elsewhere) as and when you set up your entry. I'll look into it and get back to you.

Okay - well, I don't know where you're supposed to get the code from these days but this is the code for Shades:



You'd obviously have to change the address of the button image and the “Vote for Shades” text but, otherwise, it looks like the only variable is the three-digit code for your comic/account.

Hope that helps.

Thanks man! ^_^ It seems they've changed stuff there and forgot about vote codes then? Weird…
I think I've worked out what to do though after your good help there. it seems that the 3 digit number is your username. My username is “ozoneocean” there though, lol!
So all I did was (at your suggestion) change my link code from the general link to Webbed comics to your vote link, but with my username… I think it works ^_^

Thanks for that! :)

Yup - that sounds about right. The three digit code was the user name they allocated to me when I registered. I didn't know they now allowed “real” user names! Glad it all worked out!
