Reynardo, you need to install it in your admin area and there will be widgets showing if there are upcoming birthdays among your members.

Seems that the plugin shows birthdays for more than 1 week and not only today?

This widget is also shown on Profile View page. You can stick it on a page as an administrator or allow to move it for user.

Birthdays in newsfeed are showing 2 hours before, I mean 10:00 PM instead 12:00 AM. Maybe that's the time of my web hosting...how I can fix it? Under my main settings TimeZone is set to America/Hermosillo.

Birthdays are never shown. I've changed my birthday to today, but no mention.

I use Dutch date notation (dd/mm/yyyy) does this have anything to do with that?

Sorry took so long, no the greetz plugin just sends an email to them, it does not post to the newsfeed that i can see.   So has to be the birthday mod.   I will see what i can find on this to see if i can track down something on the issue.

I think the issue might be with event_handler.php in ow_plugins\birthday\classes\

looks like we have two dynamic values which may not be parsing correctly 

line 248         'key' => 'birthdays+console_notification_comment',

line 318         'key' => 'birthdays+console_notification_like',

so on my newsfeed it shows this currently 

member pic, member name 

------------- birthdays+birthday Sep 01    

 So now im looking to see what it should say... 

maybe it should be show at all, i looked at some old newsfeeds and this is not there next to the pic

birthdays+birthday Sep 01

so im thinking maybe it should not be showing...

yeah i found it...  

its in the function onNewsfeedItemRender  inside of  ow_plugins/birthdays/classes/event_handler.php

i dont know why its doing this but i know how to quickly fix it lol..  bandaid temp

here is the section 

         $html = '<div class="ow_user_list_data">                            

<a href="'.$content['userData']["url"].'">'.$content['userData']["title"].'</a><br><span style="font-weight:normal;" class="ow_small">'. OW::getLanguage()->text('birthdays', 'birthday') . ' '. $birthdate . '</span></div>';           


  $content['content'] .= $html;

  $content['content'] = '<div class="clearfix">'.$content['content'].'</div>'; 


and i did this for temp fix.

just reset the var to '' before the array storage.. (after the original storage value)

       $html = ''; 

                       $content['content'] .= $html; 



once its blank it dont show,  ill let you try to figure out why its not showing correctly... :)
