Hi,

I am a newbie with json, javascript, etc. basically what i want to do is capture the details of a visitor to my website, such as browser type, ip address, etc, etc.

Now is there a way i can use json to call a php page to collect those details, i guess i am trying to see if i can get those details using php without having to have a php page.

I found a tutorial where a small json script used php to get the ip address and return it back to the user, however it didn't work for me and so i just wondered if it was possible?.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

Lee

Is it not possible to install some kind of monitoring analytics such as StatCounter?

Google analytics does not reveal visitors' IP addresses...

I second using stat counter, it does reveal the ip address of your visitor. I tried switching to google analytics but I didn't find it as intuitive as stat counter
