Appreciate response from customer service. I should be more patient. I do like the service.

The service is great but the plugin to use it in Wordpress is TERRIBLE.Don't know why this huge nonsense, is not loading at all, so is totally useless to have a plugin instead of a simple code to put in the footer. Use just the code instead.

Forced too use a plugin? Why? I am not getting more stats. But you are.I need 1 line of code, not a entire plugin. Moving over to Google Analytics, bye! BTW; stop writing fake positive reviews, nobody needs your crappy plugin.

I have used Statcounter for over 5 years and all of the sudden I cannot view the homepage nor login. I get a text only front page, then when I hit 'login' it goes to the original site homepage (in html and grapics) but it's only in the background. What is wrong? Is it that I've never paid for an upgrade? Are they blocking my access on purpose? I have had other people in the UK and the US try to view thier homepage and they see it with no problem so I have no option to believe that they are after 5 yrs or more just blocking me.

Website has a contact form which acknowledges receipt of message but you never get a response. Regular emails are sent encouraging you to upgrade to Premium with a Reply to address address for queries. An auto-acknowledgement email with ticket number is sent. But the ticket is never responded to. My advice is not to install StatCounter and if you have remove the plugin.

It's just a pain in the ass to go through a lot of step just to get it activated and eventually it won't work out. Besides it's limited to 500 page views or you gotta purchase a premium version. All these fake reviews won't help out because real users try it!!
