Thank you for this hack-it works beautifully for us.

I do have a feature request for a future version-the ability to set so each birthday member can get their own thread. That would work better for us, where we traditionally made a new thread for each person...

Regardless, thanks for this (and all) your mods. I use several of yours.

Is there a way you can set it so if you have a few people who are auto generated as the author do not author their own birthday thread.

This would be a fantastic way of doing it. Would make it appear that little bit more personal.

How can i find out what my forumtime is? I have it set to my time zone of course, and want to see what time it would show the thread - it may not work for us as we're +12 - so might post at like lunch time, by which time someone would have already manually done it.

mum, i would just try it and see what i got. you can always edit an poorly timed post or two, or you could set it to test by posting in a private forum first and checking the time.

Great mod thanks

One small issue with the timing of the post creation and Daylight Saving Time, in that I'm finding the new thread post is an hour late.

When I check the forum time, it is correctly displayed, i.e it's currently showing correctly as 00:15 which is British Summer Time. Indeed the time display on the bottom of the server is showing as GMT +1, i.e. Daylight Saving Time.

It seems however, that despite the forum time being correct, the thread is being posted on GMT rather than BST

go into your vb options for this mod and adjust the time, then, as there is a setting for this.

I have adjusted the time, currently set to default, i.e. the time of the forum which would be correct.

It's weird. One thread was created at forum time of 01:05. The next thread got created at 00:38
