The URL above does not exist, hard to locate what the problem is then... Are you using id or ID when passing the newsid to iSay? Try the opposite...

I understood that it was an example. Give a working URL where you are calling iSay and also, provide the URL to iSay.

I logged in with the info you gave me Hrvoje, and fixed your problem. You didn't fill out the abs paths for $AbsolutePath, $crcfg, $newsdat and $SettingsFile in iSay.cgi.

Not to rain on your site design or anything (in fact, i quite like it), but you should really make the site interoperable. The majority of surfers use IE, not Firefox. keep that in mind. So when you design a page just for Firefox, you're pretty much telling the majority of your potential visitors to f**k off. Just a thought.

Well, in the iSay settings, you can start by changing the "Optional" settings to what they should be set at. You have nothing in there, so that will help.

Secondly, the link for showing the amount of comments (using php), should look like

Code: Select all
(<?php include('http://www.advocatusdiaboli.ca/comments/counter/iSayCommentCount_<Field: newsid>.txt'); ?>)
,

not

Code: Select all
<?php include("http://www.fifa08online.com/cgi-bin/news/iSay_GetCommentCount.cgi?ID=<Field: newsid>"); ?>


All of this is explained in the iSay documentation - make sure to read it
