Hi, Im new to this forum and also new to running my forum and I would appreciate any help given

Im trying to work out how to get the calendar to put my members birthday into a board, let me explain a bit more...

I am running a forum that members put in their profile their birthdates and I want other members be able to wish them a happy birthday without us looking every day to see if there is a birthday due on the calendar, so I was wondering if I could get the calendar to link their birthday from their profile directly to a specific board

I know we can do it if we enter our birthdays directly onto the calendar(i.e creating an event)  but it doesnt seem to do it if the birthday is entered automatically from their profiles

Thanks in advance

Thanks for that but I dnt think Im brave enough yet to add a mod, even if I knew how ;D

We are running version 1.1.11 and  Im not sure about upgrading in case I run into problems and everyone is left without a forum. up to now I have 180 members and still growing and have only been going 5 days and I obviously dont want to lose them or my forum so Im a bit worried about trying this

I understand. However, what you're requesting isn't possible without making any modifications to your forum. For 1.1.x, I'm sure there was a modification but I can't find it anymore :(
