Now I'd like to get a random photo of mine at the top (like Ash has the 5 thumbnails picked randomly everytime a page loads)

Could someone possibly point me in the right direction to create something like that?

One suggestion might be something similar to what I've implemented in the classifieds and you can see in action to showcase things like the Aston Martin drive day, the way I have it set up is as a big arse slideshow, but there's no reason you can't just show a static thumbnail.

If you look at the source XML that I wrote for it, you can see that it includes a bunch of config info for the slideshow and then a list of images and links - well I only bothered to link the first couple but you get the gist.

Thanks for that Ash, I'll see if I can figure it out :)

And also, are you using Google Analytics? If so, how often do the stats update for you? It only seems to update once a day for me...

Yeah GA isn't real-time, and I find some of the metrics a bit dubious - but then I feel that of most stats systems which is why there are 4 running on AE (not counting logfiles): GA, StatCounter, Chartbeat, Firestats - they are all vastly different in what stuff you can glean from them.

FireStats is good for us stats nuts who love to drill down into things, here's the overview since having moved the server and installing the FS tool (8th Nov) and the last 25 mins or so of google.com.au hits.

Thats looks interesting, might give it a try.

Where can I view the stats? I downloaded the .zip but their website doesn't seem to offer me anywhere to look at hits n stuff?

I've got statcounter aswell, which is alright and use motigo but I think they place advertising as I sometimes seem to get an apple popup  :confused: so I'll get rid of that one.

I'll give FS a try as well I think, always like to stare at stats... now all I need is some traffic to my site  :doh:

Only during the hours of 8 till 5pm. Been quiet around here during the day.

I've been trying to install it as well and it's giving me some grief... mainly my lack of webbuilding knowledge though...

What I did was upload the installer to my ftp. Then visit that folder (went to www.celsydney.com/firestats-installer) then it directed me to download firestats from there and now I'm up to the point where it is asking me for database stuff, which is going over my head  :confused:

Do you know what I should do from here Ash?

Configuration source :
Not configured
To perform one of the following actions:
Attach to an existing FireStats installation
Install FireStats into an existing database
Create a new database and install FireStats there
Follow instructions in the help
Database host   
Database name   
Database user name   
Database password   
Tables prefix
