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)

It is supported, it is also free.
I have a life as well So I may not respond within a day or week, but will eventually.

The thread approval is part of your vB setup, not this add-on.
The add-on does not set anything to do with thread approval.

You do via AdminCP and the Forum Manager - RTFM

Thanks. I am the main Admin, so what setting should it be then? None of my other stuff is moderated obviously. All moderation options are not enabled on that forum. Maybe set the forum to allow HTML?

No, you should never allow html in a forum unless only admins can post there, security risk.

I use the same mod, and I have never had to approve a thread with this. But I have it posting in my Lounge forum.

What member group is the post member set for?

Days Active should be set to a high number if you want everyone to get a greeting.
I just realised what you want to do with this.
Eg. 365 for one year (anyone active in the last year) or 99999999 for effectively infinite.

I just took the 1 out of Exclude Usergroups. I am in usergroup 1 abd it did post for me. But I stiil had to moderate (approve the thread) it.

We'll see if that makes a difference...don't know why It would though. That's just for excluding their Birthdays if I am correct.
