Ultimate Header Greeting for vB 4
Version 1.0.7
(By Boofo)

What does this product do?
This product adds an Ultimate Greeting to the header set to each member's local time, instead of the server time, as well as showing the user's real name, if one is available, in the header and the postbit. It also adds the options to automatically check the 'Register Rules Agree' and 'Remember Me' checkboxes.

Version Information:
Version 1.0.0 --Initial release for vB 4
Version 1.0.1 --Added "Ultimate Header Greeting Font Color" setting and made greeting text bold so it matches the line better.
Version 1.0.2 --Added "New User Profile Field" instructions for the real name to the install file. The Real name will now show both in the header and the postbit, if it is available.
Version 1.0.3 --Added option to check "Register Rules Agree" checkboxes separately from the "Remember Me" checkboxes. Added STANDARD_ERROR templates "Remember Me" checkboxes automatic templates edits.
Version 1.0.4 --Fixed issue with phrases and real name not showing properly for some language translations if you had more than one language installed. Added "Sunday brunch" greeting for Sunday at 11:00 am. The lunch greeting will not be shown on Sunday, but will show on all the other days.
Version 1.0.5 --Removed font color setting and added Style Variable setting for the Ultimate Header Greeting Font Color, so it can be set for each style separately.
Version 1.0.6 --Added CSS code so the username is now in the same color as the welcome greeting. Added setting to remove the "My Profile" link from the header, since clicking on the username/real name in the welcome greeting will already take you to your profile. Added birthday greeting that will show all day on each member's birthday. Added setting to turn the birthday greeting on/off.
Version 1.0.7 --Expanded setting to remove the "My Profile" link from the header and/or navbar templates since some designers insist on moving the link to places it shouldn't be moved to. Hopefully, this will allow more custom styles to be able to use this setting without having to manually edit the templates.

Credits:
A big thank you goes out to Dragonsys for supplying me with a backup of my "Ultimate Navbar for vB3.7" mod, on which this is based.

I actually like having it a different color and boofo_uhg_fontcolor is not changing it?

It would be great to have an option.

Thanks for the update. Nice touch on the Birthday greeting.

You need to go to that style variable in each style and click save for it to take affect. And make sure you copy the new code (in the first post AND the install text file) to the bottom of the additonal.css template.

Hey Boofo nice to see you working and improving your mods.

I use your mod here in conjuction with this one.
It worked well for me with my usergroup html markups.

Will your new additions affect the markup and the profile links? Maybe you could incorporate those other features then I only need one mod.

It will only affect the greeting and username. None of the other stuff in that line is touched, as far as color goes. I added the option to remove the "My Profile" link to this but you can enable/disable that in the settings.

Well, I guess that means either this mod is garbage, or you are using a custom style. Which one is it?

Yes, I'm used 2 styles of RoyalFlush and TwistedDarkBlue from CompleteVB. These styles are not removed My Profile. But default style is removed My Profile.

All my mods are done using the default style. It would be more trouble than it is worth to try and catch it on every custom style. You are going to have to go in and see where the line for that are (in which template) and what they are exactly (are they using the default line like in the defulat stysle?). Maybe then we can figure out how to add that.

I will get another version out so the setting works for those custom styles that have that line in the navbar template instead of where it really belongs. Why the designers do stuff like that is beyond me.
