Post by vlamis.gr » Fri Mar 14, 2008 7:58 pm

It is not clear what to do with this :

SQL
Code: Select All
INSERT INTO phpbb_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('birthday_emails', '0');
INSERT INTO phpbb_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('birthday_run', '');

Select all and then do what ?

Is it correct if I ignore the "select all" , and after opening the config.php insert 2 lines :
(config_name, config_value) VALUES ('birthday_emails', '0');
(config_name, config_value) VALUES ('birthday_run', '');

?

Please, help me

Thanks again

if you are not sure how to install mods, you should read some of the articles in the support tab.

how to execute SQL in phpMyAdmin is described here

Dear lefty74

I am not a "very expert" , but with your help I have almost done !
Please, tell me what to do with "modx.prosilver.en.xsl" (where to upload this file) and how to "purge cache and refresh templates". (Do you mean delete all temporary Internet files and press refresh on browser to my local PC, or is an action to perform inside myAdmin?)

Your "email on birthday" is an excellent tool ... Thank you very much

modx.prosilver.en.xsl does not need to go anywhere, it is used so that you can see the install file in your browser but does not have anything further to do with the mod.In the Administration Panel you will be able to clear your cache.

Jaymie1989 Thanks for the support ! Very good link ( how to install a MODX ) - Thanks again !


lefty74 Thank you very muck once again for your help and your patience to help a newb like me.

What administration panel do you mean? In phpMyadmin or the admin panel of phpBB3 ?

And one more ( last :roll: ) question :oops:

In my board I use Italian phpBB forum language - Greek phpBB forum language and phpBB forum in some other languages .
Question 1 : If I leave everything as is after the installatin of "email on birthday" (english birthday_email.txt ), what happens on birthday to Greek or Italian speaking users ? They recheive a "Happy birthday" in English too ?
Question 2 : What may I can do to send the "Happy birthday" in Greek and Italian language ? Repeat the procedure ( like english installation) and translate birthday_email.txt in other languages ?

Thanks again

Sorry, I should have said, its the admin panel of phpbb3, there should be a button to purge your cache.
In my board I use Italian phpBB forum language - Greek phpBB forum language and phpBB forum in some other languages .
Question 1 : If I leave everything as is after the installatin of "email on birthday" (english birthday_email.txt ), what happens on birthday to Greek or Italian speaking users ? They recheive a "Happy birthday" in English too ?
No, there will likely be an error that birthday_email.txt could not be found.
Question 2 : What may I can do to send the "Happy birthday" in Greek and Italian language ? Repeat the procedure ( like english installation) and translate birthday_email.txt in other languages ?
You will need to also put the file called birthday_email.txt in the respective lang/it/email and lang/gr/email folders. those files you can translate and then it should work.

nice mod, but is there a way to get the user age in the e-mail?

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 !!
