Info:
This hack automatically creates a birthday thread in the forum you select. Only members that allow their date of birth to be displayed will be listed, and age will be shown only for those who has chosen that. Members are shown in colors defined in usergroup settings. You can choose to exclude inactive members. Several users can be set as greeters (used randomly when posting). Thread will be created first time when someone loads forumhome after midnight.


Notes:
-This executes 1 very simple query on forumhome/in target forum.
-mktime() error? Check out this post.

Agreed. Hmm...they're looking for coding help for vBExperience 4.X since Phalanx is hanging 'em up. How about it Valter? ;-) :D

Anyway we could include the data from this script in the thread ???

http://www.joeswebtools.com/wordpres...n-on-this-day/

So It says :

You also share your birthday with,:-

Bing Crosby
Edgar Allan Poe
Jacque Cousteau

etc ?

Hornstar 17 Feb 2010 20:07

So it creates just 1 thread with all the birthdays listed in it? That sounds pretty good.

Valter 17 Feb 2010 21:04

One thread per day, like it's shown on screenshot:
