How to make Site Meter and Internet Explorer play nice.

Do what I did, explained here where it talks about editing the template to move the Site Meter javascript out of any tables (causing the meter to appear at the bottom of the page). This worked for me. I also put an ordinary link to my Site Meter page in the sidebar so it will still be easy to check the statistics (which I like to do).

Thanks for that link.

Since you have resolved, and I don't want to download IE8 beta or go the FF route, I will keep fingers crossed and hope other sites have resolved. If not, I'll add as a restricted site.

I still think you caught something from Pamela Anderson.

Hanging out in LA has just been one disaster after another.

Ace of Spades, Instapundit, Michelle Malkin, etc. all caught it too.

What did you think of the John Edwards escapade? Has that been on the LA news at all?

For some reason the site meter on my blog just disappeared about a week ago.

I like to track the number of visitors I am getting, and from whence they hail.

Alas, zilch-o.

Heh. You must of all been watching Swing Town. You dirty birds.

I mean I knew that you and the Instanerd and Dr Helen had a Threes company thing going on. But Ace of Spades. Damn. That's slumming.

My traffic isn't enough to tell if my drop off is just by the fact I hadn't been posting much, or this problem.

I guess I'll just remove Sitemeter and stick with Google Analytics. GA is a bit more complicated to deal with, but, I spend too much time goofing around looking at my "ego meters", anyway.

Sitemeter claims to have fixed the problem.

I was lucky not to have a problem because I don't use sitemeter. I don't really care how many people visit. All is vanity.
