This block counts the visits to the site or to the course wherever it has been situated, even to the space “my moodle” of each user. In the block administration, it can be configurated how much time in seconds, between entries from an IP address, that are taken into account to increment the counter, so that the visit is not counted several times from a same IP address to the same course or to the site. Default value to take into account an IP address again is 4 hours.
Within the block, there is a folder named pix/ where we can put the images that we want them to appear on the counter. There are some default images that can be replaced. Moreover, if the counter is used in a course (including the cover corresponding to course 1), it can put a folder in the root of course files named counter/ with the images that you want to use, and then the counter will validate its existence and if they do not exist, it uses the default images of the site. Images must have a .gif format.
