Hi, I was asked by a friend to look into why his cpanel created hit counter doesn't display properly in safari 3.1.1 but displays properly in every other browser. Here is a temp page link just for the counter code.

When viewed in safari it says the counter must be created in cpanel first but it has been as I've double checked it. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I've tried changing the path but that doesn't seem to work. The permissions are correct otherwise it wouldn't work in firefox,ie,opera and google chrome correct?

The issue is the counter code has a 100% USDA crap URI using pipes instead of ampersands.

This works in all browsers:
/cgi-sys/Count.cgi?df=bottleca.dat&display=Counter&ft=6&md=6&frgb=183;183;252&dd=K

This is what you had, it's technically a garbage URI:
/cgi-sys/Count.cgi?df=bottleca.dat|display=Counter|ft=6|md=6|frgb=183;183;252|dd=K

Thanks for the help and my apologies to all for not reading the rules before posting. So many forums with different protocols sometimes a fellow gets lazy. Won't happen again. Please delete the link.
