A Widget Flag Counter can be a benefit to your website, especially if you are a WordPress beginner or if this is a new website.
I decided to add a visitor counter to Money Making Entrepreneur. I will put this in a Widget in the Theme. This will show me what country most of my visitors are coming from. It will also give me something pretty to decorate my site with. I will recommend flagcounter.com because I have used them on a number of sites and they have performed okay. I also like them because they allow you to make a number of settings to give you the feel they are a part of your website. Finally, I like them because of their ease of use.
I am going to put my counter in the sidebar, so first of all I need to know what is the color of my sidebar and text. For this I will check my theme options.
Our Money Making Entrepreneur site running the Tukod / Atahualpa Theme is starting to look pretty good. Just a couple more things in the center column and it will be complete… I want the change the link colors on the post for multi-pages. Also make it bold.

So see if you can follow this in the TuKod Theme (Atahualpa)
Appearance -> Theme Options -> “Sidebars & Widgets” -> “Style WIDGETS”
With our header finished, our TuKod Theme (Atahualpa) and style have started to take shape. But as they say, the devil is in the details! It is the little things that make the difference between “That’s a good site” and “Wow! That is a great site!” Right now we are going to look at the side bars, specifically, the small line that separates them from the center section.
The “Category Menu” and the “Page Menu” are sort of mirrors of each other. I am using them both as “Decoration Bars” on the bottom and top of the Header Image, respectively. As we adapt the Category Menu for that purpose, we need to keep in mind that we will be doing the same thing, almost, as we already did for the Page Menu (with a few additions!). The Category Bar will be below our Header Image and have links to our categories from right to left. The Menu Bar will be above our Header Image and have links to our pages from left to right.
