www.AusPhotography.net.au Birthday Thread and PM generator

This product provides a simple way to create both an automatic Birthday greeting thread and forum member birthday PM.

Features:

1. Configurable greeting text with name, age (optional), and birthday
2. Excludable usergroups (eg. banned etc)
3. Creates a thread in selectable forum and sends a PM from selected user (admin or other)
4. Runs as a vBulletin scheduled task (vB cron job)
5. Honours forum members birthday profile settings
6. Only sends birthdays for members with recent forum activity (configurable)
7. Adjusts for forum members time-zone so the greeting will be on their birthday


Uses:

1. Creates a Database table to track birthday processed
2. One additional file vBulletin scheduled task (vB cron job)
3. Product installation file


Installation:

1. Copy ap_birthday.php to the forum ./includes/cron directory
2. Install the product file
3. Configure it via AdminCP/Settings/Options
4. Disable the vBulletin birthday emailer in AdminCP / Scheduled tasks
Done!

Enjoy! It will probably work on vB3.6+ as well.

Update 2013-04-12: Working with 4.2.0
Update 1.1.2 if zero active post use 'lastactivity' instead (bugfix)

This posted a birthday thread for me today exactly at midnight, but even though in my profile it says the 26th is my birthday, it posted that my birthday was the 25th.

What timezone is your server?
What timezone is your user profile?
When it posted at midnight, was that in your timezone or the servers?

Did you change the job schedule at all? It should run hourly not on the exact hour.

Thanks

As I run a non-english forum I would like to know if it is possible to remove the "th" after the age and the english version of date (f.ex. 20th= 20 and "7th of August"=7. august) ?

it doesn't allow it from the admin panel, it defaults to 1. You addressed this in an earlier post stating that it had to be changed in the .php file. Can you post the code that needs changed?
