I just had a customer complain that his visitor counter has an error. Instead of showing a number, it says "Unable to read strip image".

I thought maybe it was his HTML, so I just logged into cPanel and recreated the HTML... but then I found the problem. About 75% of the Visitor Counter digit styles have disappeared! In CGI Center > Counter > Styles there should be a page that displays all the neat counter digit styles available to the user. Out of the 30+ digit styles that are listed, only 5 are working (only the digits labeled A through E are showing up.... F-Z and 1-7 are missing)

When I look in /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/share/Counter/digits I can confirm that only A-E are there. I have to assume this took place after the 11.36 upgrade, but maybe it is a coincidence. They are missing from all the servers I checked, or I'd just copy them from another server.

Anybody else seeing this?

I am guessing I can just go Google and find the files somewhere....

FYI, the quick fix was to change this user's counter HTML from dd=W to dd=A (changed the style from W to A)

As a side note, it appears the original Counter cgi script only came with a small number of digit styles, and all of THOSE are still on the server. What seems to be missing is the extra digit styles that cPanel used to offer.
