Remove white-spaces from CSS parameters in usergroup options.

How can I set this up for individual threads for people who celebrate their birthdays on the same day?

Oh and by the way, those who don't see threads, go into your Admincp - VBOptions - Cyb Auto Birthday greeter. right here "Greeter(s) (comma separated UserID list)", type in the userids listed in your Usergroup Manager list... (i.e., regular members, Admins, Moderators, etc to look like 6,7,10). It took me a moment to figure that one out...

Ok here's what the birthday greeter panel looks like. Now anyone tell me why it doesnt work?? Using 3.7.2 vb. version. The active users time cut-off is set at 0, the default. So all members are active. A member had a bday yesterday and it didn't work! argh. Also hrs set at -2 to catch west coast birthdays. Current time zone for server is CT.

Cool

I am also having a issue with it no longer working for my site as well, it uses to work 100% of the time and now nothing... I am on 3.7.0. and CYB HB addon ver 1.4

Please help to get this add-on working again.

I added two images as well so you can see what I see when looking at the addon.

TIA,
Kyle

I have noticed the birthday topics not being created also, but I also noticed that the birthday block on the home page also no longer shows up since my last upgrade to 3.7.2 PL1.

I havent yet figured out if this is because of the VB update, or if the mod isnt working with the update, and disabled the VB function on the home page somehow.


edit - I disable the mod, and the birthday notice on the homepage still doesnt show, so I 'suspect' the new vb patch update isnt flagging a member as having a birthday. (I also have all members birthdays showing, with no cutoff for activity time, so the ALL should show)

Thinking it was a VB issue with the new patch version, I submitted a ticket, but they are unable to reproduce this on a stock board.

I will 'try' to figure out where it fails, but no guarantees here.

OK, this appears to be a VB3.7.2PL1 issue, after working with VB on a support ticket.

Unproven yet as far as this mod goes, but I suspect it will fix the issue described as far as the mod not making a birthday post.

Apparently the setting to display active member birthday only, in ACP, works exactly backwards to the text in the checkbox.

To make it work, UNCHECK the "Show birthdays for active users only" to show birthdays for active users only.

I have submitted a bug report at VB dot com, so I suspect this will be fixed soon.
