Customize Your Counter!
This page is a tutorial to customize your counter from flagcounter.com. The red text in the example counters is the ID of your counter. Replace the example ID with the one provided in your original code.
Customize the colors:
Customizing the color of your flag counter can be really helpful to match your website. All you need to know about to do this is learn about hexadecimal codes. A hexadecimal code is a number made up of 6 letters, for example FFFFFF is the colour white, and 000000 is the colour black. It is very easy to find the hexadecimal codes, just search it up on a search engine, but what you do have to know is where to put what.
An example code:
<a href="http://s01.flagcounter.com/more/example/"><img src="http://s01.flagcounter.com
pageviews_0/flags_0/" alt="free counters" border="0"></a>
The places you can edit the color of are;
bg_. This part of your counter will edit the background color. Just add the hexadecimal code after bg_. For example bg_FFFFFF will make you a white background.
txt_. this part of your counter will edit the colour of the text on the counter. Just add the hexadecimal code after txt_. For example txt_000000 will make you have black text.
border_. This part of your counter will edit the color of your counters border. Just add the hexadecimal code after border_. For example border_CCCCCC will make you have a grey border.
