Check La Emperadora's usergroup tags.

If it's add-on then other usernames should be affected too.

Thanks for the update(s) I have re installed it and everything seems to be working on vBulletin v4.0.3.

However have the same issue with the persons birthday being posted a day earlier.

I have installed Kras's fix so hopefully this will resolve this issue. So thanks! But won't know until tomorrow.

Ok I am sorry to report that Kras's fix did not fix the problem with the posting of someone's birthday on the correct day.

As it posted the announcement 27mins before midnight on the day before the persons birthday.

For example.

Persons birthday was the 28th of November 2010.

Announcement was posted at 11:27 PM on the 27th of November and the message read as follows.



1 member is celebrating their birthday on 27-11-10:

-Erica (born in 1986, Age: 24)


Happy Birthday!





So is there something else that needs to be changed in the code for the post to be made on the correct day?

As everything else seems to be fixed .

Thanks.

Kras' fix does work fine and corrects the time problem in the original mod that's been around a very long time ...

Since we installed it on v4.04pl1, all of the time issues and incorrect dates for posting such as what you're reporting have been fixed...

I suspect the problem you've experienced has something to do with DST etc., or something else ..

Regards,
Doug

Yes the problem lies with the DST setting if you have it enabled.

I have now disabled the DST setting and the mod works well.

Thanks!

Opp's seems I was a bit premature with saying that the posting date is fixed.

The actual time of the post is correct. As in the mod makes the post on the day of the persons birthday just after midnight. In this case the post was made on the 1-12-2010.

However in the message itself. It says that the person celebrated their birthday the day before which was the 30-11-2010 as shown in this image.




So is there a way in which I can correct what the post actually posts in the message? As it should be saying.

Rather than

As shown in the image above.

Thanks.

I too just installed this and it's posting toda for birthdays that are actually tomorrow. Not only that but it's posted two threads in one day.

Doesn't this post just a single thread for that days birthday at midnight?

It has been doing it for a while. I think it has more to do with the vb software, then the mod really.
