Ultimate Header Greeting for vB 4
Version 1.0.7
(By Boofo)

What does this product do?
This product adds an Ultimate Greeting to the header set to each member's local time, instead of the server time, as well as showing the user's real name, if one is available, in the header and the postbit. It also adds the options to automatically check the 'Register Rules Agree' and 'Remember Me' checkboxes.

Version Information:
Version 1.0.0 --Initial release for vB 4
Version 1.0.1 --Added "Ultimate Header Greeting Font Color" setting and made greeting text bold so it matches the line better.
Version 1.0.2 --Added "New User Profile Field" instructions for the real name to the install file. The Real name will now show both in the header and the postbit, if it is available.
Version 1.0.3 --Added option to check "Register Rules Agree" checkboxes separately from the "Remember Me" checkboxes. Added STANDARD_ERROR templates "Remember Me" checkboxes automatic templates edits.
Version 1.0.4 --Fixed issue with phrases and real name not showing properly for some language translations if you had more than one language installed. Added "Sunday brunch" greeting for Sunday at 11:00 am. The lunch greeting will not be shown on Sunday, but will show on all the other days.
Version 1.0.5 --Removed font color setting and added Style Variable setting for the Ultimate Header Greeting Font Color, so it can be set for each style separately.
Version 1.0.6 --Added CSS code so the username is now in the same color as the welcome greeting. Added setting to remove the "My Profile" link from the header, since clicking on the username/real name in the welcome greeting will already take you to your profile. Added birthday greeting that will show all day on each member's birthday. Added setting to turn the birthday greeting on/off.
Version 1.0.7 --Expanded setting to remove the "My Profile" link from the header and/or navbar templates since some designers insist on moving the link to places it shouldn't be moved to. Hopefully, this will allow more custom styles to be able to use this setting without having to manually edit the templates.

Credits:
A big thank you goes out to Dragonsys for supplying me with a backup of my "Ultimate Navbar for vB3.7" mod, on which this is based.

Are you changing the phrases or the code itself? Others have translated this for their specific languages and have had no issues.

Well, that makes no sense as Mosh and I are using almost the same code, as there is really only one way to do this.

I asked for a list of wanted phrases and times when I released the vb 3 series versions and got very little back in responses. There are 2 in there that are for a specific minute of each day. If you guys want more, you have to let me know and they have to make some sort of sense and use for the majority.

Then you must have another mod messing with it or you edited something wrong. I just tested it with Italian phrases and they showed up fine for the greeting.

Yes, I just checked it and it is doing something strange on my site, too. I will look into it and find the answer. Sit tight.
