    I use Counterize and got ome hits that have URI:
    "/blog/2006/02/17/something/wp-content /favicon.ico"

    Why is that?

    1st: I dont have a favicon.
    2nd: Why trying to find a favicon there?

    I also have som URIs that looks like this:

    Seem tom look for the favicon at the right place, but why is that registered as a hit? Should it be like that?

    Most "concerned" about the above one though.

    Ahaaaaa... if someone put a post in his/her bookmarks it looks for the favicon.ico. Sure... But why does it look for it where it i not even supposed to be? I just tried it with my own IP, booth above occured.

    I can't see what whooami said... so I'm at risk of saying the same thing.

    In your header, do you have - anywhere - href="/wp-content/favicon.ico"
    If you do, that is the problem.

    podz: Yes i have, and i DO have an favicon.ico. So the URI from http://www.myblog.com/wp-content/favicon.ico in Counterize should be there, but why does the browser try to find the favicon.ico in http://www.myblog.com/posts/2006/2/18/somepost/wp-content/favicon.ico if someone adds http://www.myblog.com/posts/2006/2/18/somepost/ to their bookmarks? That is the question... :S

    means add that to whatever url is there in the address bar, so if you have
    it will look at
    which is probably correct

    would also look relatively and that would be
    which is wrong.

    So..in header, put the full url to the favicon and then see what happens.
    Without a url to your site, this is as best as I can do.

    ahhh, yes i didnt even to look where he/whe was putting the actual favicon

    for what its worth, browsers look for your favicon at the root of your web site. Basically that means that though you may specify a path to it in your header so that they will see it when they hit your site, its a crap shoot if they bookmark it.

    Safe thing is to put it in your web_root and use that path.

    Now counterize doesn't count any of the .ico-hits. Nice!

    Mickej - good thing you asked. People have asked me previously why Counterize counted those hits, and I really couldn't tell.
    Being the author of something you can't really explain is kindof crappy :)

    Nice to get clarification...

    I customized the way my URLs appear using the standard wordpress interface for URL rewrites, however when i use Counterize the only page it lists in the index.php page and no other ones. Is there a way around this?
