Even though I selected no image during setup, a placeholder shows after pasting code. I deleted the placeholder/image, will this affect the statcounter?
(thanks from this newbie)
Ok I don't know what you did precisely.

If you saw a "placeholder" for an image supposed to be invisible, during the loading of the page all you needed to do was add one line of code to the frist javscript:

var sc_invisible = 1;
So let me know your website url and I can then see what you did.
