Is there a way to post our home page counter from our statistics page to our home page?

Also how do I put something on my home page, so when they reach the bottom of the site they could click on something that takes them back to the top of the site instantly.Confused

There's no automated way to post your statistics count on your home page, although you could copy and paste the data periodically. There's also a variety of third party counters you could plug into the home page.

Regarding a link to get back to the top of the page, you need to insert a thing called an "anchored link." They are easy to make. Full instructions in this thread.

Your PIRATE IMAGE is named with an anchor "Click__Here__to_go_Back_to_the_Beginning", but the link to go back to the beginning is referencing a different name, it is referencing href="#Click "Here" to go Back to the Beginning"

If you make the href="#Click__Here__to_go_Back_to_the_Beginning" I think it will work

The link is not referencing the anchor.

I am sorry, I don't know what it is that I am doing wrong. I don't mean to be a pain. I have put the anchor name and the link name as the same "Top of Page" & "#Top of Page, I have put the link name with a "#Top of Page" and the anchor as "Top of Page". I have tried it every way I can think of and I am now getting an error page when I try it out, befor that everytime I tried it, every way I tried it, it wouldn't work. Again I am sorry, but what am I doing wrong. I am about to pull my hair out. Sad

When I do a view source, I see the name being "Top_of_Page" (NOTICE THE UNDERLINES). I see the link to the name being "Top of Page" (NO UNDERLINES). Try putting the underlines in the link at the bottom of the page.

PS the TEXT of the link at the bottom of the page doesn't need to be the same as the link.

If you have to, click on the SOURCE button and at the very bottom of the page, change the href="#Top_of_Page"

Edited: forgot the "#"

Thank you very much for all of your help.Very Happy I figured it out. I just didn't want the # sign in front of my word and I didn't want _ in between the words. I didn't like the way it looked. I wasn't getting that, there needs to be no spaces at all in between my words. So I fixed it. It works. It clicked what I was doing wrong right befor I got your last post. Thank you again!Very Happy

But just so you know, the Displayable Text at the bottom of your page (the text you click on) can be anything. It can even have spaces in it. It doesn't have to be the same as the href="" text.
