Sitemeter Hijinks Never Mind « Blogging »

Hey, ya'll!

If you use Sitemeter, did you have it stop working at some point yesterday afternoon?

Mine did. It just didn't appear on my website. I went to the site to log in, and zero hits recorded.

Something in all this made me feel like there was just a glitch, not that Sitemeter was actually down. So this morning I repasted the code somewhere else on my page. No help.

So I went into management to recopy the Sitemeter Code. When I pasted it into the site template, it was quite a bit longer than the original! When I deleted the original and reloaded the indexes, lo and behold! Sitemeter appeared on my site again.

So it would appear they changed the basic code without notifying me. If they did the same to you, well, that's what you need to do to fix it.

Update: something is up, but I'm not sure what.
The Sitemeter code for MT just doesn't work. It seems to have something to do with the server update that they said would only take a few minutes and wouldn't lose any hits. Well, mine has lost about 50 hits since yesterday. I can only fix the problem by no longer using their suggested method for MT, i.e., having a separate Sitemeter template. I just put the code directly into the sidebar now. That seems to work.
