My other Admin Caught this:

I noticed that the birthday thing on the main page was not actually doing its job, so have changed the cache setting so it actually shows up the people whose birthday it is. Guess why I noticed it doesn't work lol. Hope you don't mind!

fyi,

for 7.3 the colorizing will be easier. just do:
PHP Code
$uname = $html->user_color($uname, $Color, $PostStatus); 
and it's done for you.

this will also take into account the globalmod color. :2c:

Fixes colorize bug, and introduces compatibility with 7.3 smile Untested that is laugh


Cleanup for post #1 I will still do tomorrow smile

Update: Hmm, doesn't seem to work yet, I'll have a test drive tomorrow smile Don't know if the $VERSION variable is available in a custom island.

How about one that lists birthdays for the month instead of per day?

could be a busy screen if you have a lot of members. But "a month from now", because "in thos month" is not so interesting. It's not so interesting to see if somebody had it's birthday 30 days ago.

No, I crossed it out because I didn't want to clear the messsage clear, but the code wasn't working in that message. Just take the island from post #1. There is always the most up-to-date, tested, version there!

Uploaded the latest version - all working again.

It is a shame when 90% of users hide their birthday's.

We get threads saying 'happy birthday x' when x is not showing on the birthday list frown

I tried this, in the beginning worked fine, but after a fe days, it doesn't update anymore. Probably a caching prob, but how to avoid this?

ensure you are running the latest version and clear your cache files - then rebuild the cache from your CP.

I added the Birthday Island.. It's a big hit... But it seems to only post about one out of every 20 that show up in the Calendar. Any ideas why? I thought that if they showed in the calendar, then the permissions would allow them in the Island.

Here's the code that I used -- from this forum.
===========
Code
/* PHP CODE HERE */

$maxdaysago=10;

$temp = getdate($now);
$month = $temp["mon"];
$mday = $temp["mday"];
$year = $temp["year"];

$visitlimit=time()-60*60*24*$maxdaysago;

if (isset($config['BIRTHDAYS_IN_CALENDAR']) && $config['BIRTHDAYS_IN_CALENDAR']) {
$query = "
SELECT t1.USER_DISPLAY_NAME,t2.USER_BIRTHDAY,t1.USER_IS_UNDERAGE,t1.USER_ID,t2.USER_NAME_COLOR,t1.USER_MEMBERSHIP_LEVEL
FROM {$config['TABLE_PREFIX']}USERS as t1,
{$config['TABLE_PREFIX']}USER_PROFILE as t2,
{$config['TABLE_PREFIX']}USER_DATA as t3
WHERE t2.USER_BIRTHDAY LIKE ?
AND t1.USER_IS_BANNED != '1'
AND t2.USER_PUBLIC_BIRTHDAY = '1'
AND t3.USER_LAST_VISIT_TIME >= ?
AND t1.USER_ID = t2.USER_ID
AND t1.USER_ID = t3.USER_ID
";
$sth = $dbh -> do_placeholder_query($query,array("$month/$mday/%",$visitlimit),__LINE__,__FILE__);
$marray[0] = "";
while(list($uname,$birthday,$coppauser,$birthdayuser,$Color,$PostStatus) = $dbh -> fetch_array($sth)) {
@list($bmonth,$bday,$byear) = @split("/",$birthday);
$age = "";
if ($config['AGE_WITH_BIRTHDAYS'] && !$coppauser) {
$age = $year - $byear;
$age = " ($age)";
} // end if
$Color = trim($Color);
if ($Color)
{
$uname = "<span style=\"color:$Color;\">$uname</span>";
}
else
{
if ($PostStatus == "Administrator")
{
$uname = "<span class=\"adminname\">$uname</span>";
}
elseif ($PostStatus == "Moderator")
{
$uname = "<span class=\"modname\">$uname</span>";
}
}

$bdays .= "<a href=\"{$config['BASE_URL']}/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showprofile&User=$birthdayuser\">$uname</a>$age, ";
} // end while
} // end if
if (!$bdays)
{
$bdays="No birthdays today";
}
else
{
$bdays = substr($bdays,0,strlen($bdays)-2);
$bdays = "Happy birthday ".$bdays.".";
}
/* BODY HERE */
$body = <<<EOF
$bdays

It looks like you have $maxdaysago=10 - which would mean that only those people who have been active in the last 10 days are shown.

I have mine set to 400, to show anyone who has been online in the last year (or just over)

I used the same code, and the result is quiet weird, one user, but mentioned twice:


Happy birthday Happy birthday Alone.Alone.
