Unfortunately it's still producing multiple threads for the same events.

Looks like I'm going to have to uninstall it again.

Such a shame, as I was looking forward to get this going again.

It's still posting a day early.

For someone who's birthday is on September 8th it just posted a thread at 10:21 PM GMT stating his birthday is September 7th.

I have the same problem with the new version ...

Two members birthdays are on Sept 8th and it posted Happy Birthday notices at 3:43pm on September 7th, the day before ....

I as hoping this latest update would fix the issue with this mod as there isn't anything else like it under vb4.

Regards,
Badger

It will exclude members who has chosen to not show their birthdays, or are inactive, etc...

Check product settings.

Question

Update:

Have a member's birthday today, Sept 10th ...

The post automatically placed in the forum we specified was added with a date yesterday (1 member is celebrating their birthday on 09-09-2010) with a time of 2:50 pm...

I don't remember seeing that post in that forum last night, so I'm beginning to wonder if the mod automatically put it there just after midnight today as it should have, however, it tagged it with the wrong date and time on the post itself? In other words, it's recognizing that it should put this member's birthday notice in the forum on today's date, but when it carries out the posting action it's using yesterday's date and some arbitrary time, which I haven't figured out where it's getting that information from.

Hope this helps Valter figure out what's happening with this recent version.

Regards,
Badger

Update ..

For some reason, it's now started double posting again. Same birthdays, duplicated within an hour of each other ....

Have temporarily disabled it ..

Hi Valter,

Could you tell me what the difference is between the message and message (pl) phrases?

Thanks!

I got three days of single posts, but today I started the multiple post routine again.

Once again disabled until the issue IS fixed.
