Lefty your mods are always so useful and easy, easy, easy!

Can you confirm that this one can be used with your b-day pop up? I can't see why not but would like to confirm. Thanks a bunch!

so you have something like this

Code: Select all

Subject: Happy Birthday {USERNAME}! 

Dear {USERNAME},

Many congratulations on your {age} birthday and have a great day !!

{EMAIL_SIG}
Sorry, i forgot about this.

you can try the following to get the age in the email. I have not tested this though.

open index.php
find

Code: Select all

				'jabber'	=> $row['user_jabber'],
after add

Code: Select all

				'age'		=> ($age) ? ($now['year'] - $age) : '',
find

Code: Select all

			'USERNAME'		=> htmlspecialchars_decode($addr['name'])
replace wiht

Code: Select all

			'USERNAME'		=> htmlspecialchars_decode($addr['name']),
			'AGE'			=> $addr['age']
then in in your email template

Code: Select all

[code]Subject: Happy Birthday {USERNAME}! 

Dear {USERNAME},

Many congratulations on your {AGE} birthday and have a great day !!

{EMAIL_SIG}

Dear lefty74
Now phpBB3 on the index (first forum page) shows the persons ( "Today is Mary's birthday") but wont send email to the user ...

Any help ?

What will it do when someone hasn't set his birth year??? Will it crash or simply leave the place blank?

Would it be possibly to have it work out if they have their year in their eg:

No Year:
We wish you a happy birthday....

With Year:
We wish you a happy <yr>th birthday?
