Thank you, I've been doing Birthday greetings for a long time now under the old platform. It would be nice to be able to continue if it is able to be done somehow. Was VERY EASY under the OLD format.
Give it a few days. Seems like it took a while before the birthdays showed up on the other forums just like it took some time for the points & such to show up yesterday.. Other thing is there may not be any BDs today. I assume you know where to go to find the birthdays. Click on the View All link in the Community Staff area and then you have a bunch of links in the box on the left hand side of the page. This is also available from your phone, just a little different to get there.There is a profile post section in a members information page(and that works), it just does not show on the main page like the old platform did(more like a private message). BUT NO WAY to know if somebody has a birthday to send a greeting to. AND even though it is a part of members information and has a box to check ro show DOB/age...it does NOT show in any area of use.
Well, I'll "concede" to you on that point to a degree, but still feel this platform makes it too easy for people to just "pop" onboard looking for instant answers to their concerns compared to the "process" of the old platform....IMOA strong forum community has never been about the platform used. It about the people that come together to discuss and share with each other and along the way, true friendships are built.
Just my 2 cents...
Thank you very much!I will definitely pass on your feedback to the developers.
I never receive ETAs on which updates are going to happen or if they will. When I hear more, I will let you know.Have NOT heard anything back of my posted concerns OR seen any improvements to said concerns. I know the XENFORO platform can support the "TODAY'S BIRTHDAYS" heading, as another forum of same platform HAS IT OPERATIONAL.
I have not heard more about birthdays.ANY hopes yet for certain features(like BIRTHDAYS) in the works yet? Also been noting that "JOINING" info could use a little improvement by having "joining members" include their geographic location(other than site generated flag that not all know what country it is) and also include YEAR and ENGINE TYPE(diesel or gas) and Cylinder size(L4 or V6).
If I had to guess the birthday feature is not turned off, one of the updates probably cleared the check boxes for everyone so you would need to change it if you want it to show. Privacy issues is driving a lot of the personal info being hidden which I believe is coming from our European neighbors being a lot tougher on internet rules/laws than what we are here.I guess that with the Covid-19 going on...that this will further "push back" any hopes of needed site feature activation. Like BIRTHDAYS found activated by other Xenforo platform forums I also use.....
