There currently is no feature of which I'm aware that would accomplish placing a Web counter displaying the number of visitors on your site. This is something that would have to be developed by someone.

All best,

Hi eseadmin,

I'm guessing you're looking at a third-party counter tool that provides you with the code to embed in your website. The surest way to embed that in OJS is to determine what template you want to place it on -- most likely the journal homepage, which is in templates/index/journal.tpl -- and putting it between {literal}{/literal} tags to prevent accidental interpretation of the contents as Smarty tags.
