  • Template for birthdays on forumhome


    calendar_showbirthdays is as close as I can come to a template to show user birthday's on the forum home page. Unfortunately, vBulletin uses some sort of caching mechanism to detect which birthday to display for a user. A temporary "template" is created in the templates table of the vBulletin database that contains date|||date|||<a href.....>|||<a href....> (makes you wonder what would happen if a user registered with "|||"... But anyway).

    The link seems to be generated by calendar_showbirthdays however when I modify it in the template set I'm working with, the changes aren't carried over immediately and a week later, birthday links are still being shown incorrectly.

    I'm posting this before really looking into it a bit more deeply--the birthday display code is scattered around a bit as far as I can tell. But I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction without us having to examine the code closely and get caught up in "fixing" things.

    Happy holidays!
