some referers doesn't show on last seven days referers, their referer are not blank, the visiting time is within a week, and they are not in banned list. some referers have been more than 10 times though.

i dont know, even in advance stats systems somethings i get blanks or ++++'s and stuff, this is a world that gets so nitpicky with things...there could be many reasons, as a ref from a system it doesnt understand, such as email though a pda or something...or a spider that has no name...

if the referer is left empty it cannot be recorded
we found out some time ago that these ++++'s are produced by some anonymous surfing product
the referrer-info can be configured in the server-administration, browsers can be configured not to show refererr-info, some "Middleware" for identity protection etc. can do that
there are many possibilities and you cannot take for granted that every visitor will deliver referer info ..

and the following referers cannot be displayed:
I found the difference is that the second links have "&" in it. and I checked the code.
$nreferer = htmlentities($nreferer);
is it need to use the function htmlentities()?
I deleted it. and works fine.
