I used to have a visitors to date count at the bottom of my page but just noticed that it is gone. Can someone tell me how to put that feature back?

The hit counter was eleiminated as an option because it really didn't provide useful information about the visitors. Site statistics give much better information. You can find one in HTML and copy/paste the code into an HTML box,but be careful as some may have malware attached to the code.

Hit counters are not recommended because of these reasons. Also, search engines might penalize their use.
