Email on Birthday

Post by jackennils » Sun May 07, 2017 4:15 pm

Hey!

I'm looking for an 3.2 extension like this mod here for the old 3.0.x:
viewtopic.php?t=828325

There is an extension made by forumhulp, but it's not officially approved and not working properly.
So I would really like to see an ext for this here. :)


Thanks
Nils

Hmm I think there's a few of these available to be honest.
For 3.2?
Example?

Every time it's my birthday I get about 20 of those damn emails that day from forums I've joined. They all go in the bin :)

XYZ forums wish you a non-feeling automated happy birthday.

So you have also reached that age when you do not want reminding how old you are :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Yup, aging can make one cynical... :P

Seriously though, a birthday e-mail could remind that user of the existence of that forum, and wishing happy birthday is a nice way to do so. :)

Is anyone thinking about coding this for 3.2?

I only receive a birthday e-mail once every 4 years and sometimes even that birthday greeting is skipped , seems like an error in phpBB :lol:

Have you tried with this one?

I'm using it and it works perfectly.
