Re: Show birthdays to guests

I get that, and should any concerns arise, we would react swiftly.

phpBB showed birthdays to guests for a long time, if I am not mistaken. I think it was changed with 3.1, was it? During all those years no member of ours ever mentioned they wouldn't want other than registered members to see their birthday.

The difference between Facebook and phpBB boards is that most people on Facebook use their actual and full name, whereas most people on phpBB boards -- or so I assume -- use a nick.

I never did surely I'm not on my own? I even had an email specifically for FB, Twitter and the like.

There are no ‘threads’ in phpBB, they are topics.

Yup, that's the one I went with, and since it worked, I didn't try anything else. Thanks again. :)

This one:

Code: Select all

$show_birthdays = ( ($config['load_birthdays'] && $config['allow_birthdays']) || $auth->acl_gets('a_user', 'a_useradd', 'a_userdel') );
:lol:

That still won't show birthdays to guests which is what the topic title states? So instead it seems you only want to display birthdays to those with admin persmissions.

Yup, 3Di's instructions worked like a charm. Birthdays are now shown to guests. :)

No, you are not on your own, but then, you are not "most people". :)
