It’s been about 5 years since I released the first advx counter, so much has happened in my life that I had a hard time making room for the next version of the counter, but I finally got there.
There is a ton of new stuff in this release candidate, the following are just a few:
- Up to date browser and OS detection.
- Significant bug fixes and improvements throughout.
- Navigation changes include first/last/next/previous links when displaying large
volumes of stats rather than displaying all in one page.
- Search engine bot detection.
- Much better file locking and error reporting routines.
- Display collected URL strings encoded to stop XSS problems.
- Detailed displays are in alternating colour codes to aid readability.
- Updated country of origin library.
- Aided install. The script can check all of its required files locations and permissions and report problems.
This is a release candidate, but it is a fairly stable one as it’s been running endlessly behind htmlfixit.com for over a year.
Please try the newly upgraded demo to see what’s different. (Keep in mind that the actual statistics displayed in the demo are fake and fairly old except for a couple I added to show Firefox 3 and vista/ie8.)
Those of you with the current ADVX counter, can upgrade to the new RC just by overwriting the old files with the new. This
upgrade is of no use to people without the old ADVX counter because the upgrade doesn’t come with the configuration files
required to get it working. (you use your old ones unchanged)
The new advx counter 2.00 upgrade can be downloaded here. and the instructions are included in the zip file.
Anyone wishing to report an error or bug, please use the forum listed in the menu to the left. Assuming nobody finds any show stoppers, this release candidate will become the final 2.00 version in a week or two.
