  • Date of birth uneditable or missing

    After updating from vbulletin 4.2.5 to 5.4 date of birth in profile missing after upgrade users who had not set the date of birth in the past can not change the profile because they can not add the date of birth.
    Moreover, if the date of birth is wrong can not be changed by users?

    As admin you should be able to edit a date of birth but members cannot change it themselves as it is assumed they should get their date of birth right and not need to change it!

    There is an occasional time when a member might do it wrong so that is why admin can edit.

    Certainly if you are using COPPA you wouldn't want someone to be able to change it at will.

      Ok I agree with but on vbulletin 4 the date of birth was not set as mandatory. Now on vb5 if the date of birth is not present in a profilebecause not written in the past the user can not add it and therefore can not change the profile or options.

        In settings > user profile options you can set whether a date of birth is required or not. Maybe try turning that to 'no' and see if that helps?
