    Questions and Answers:

    Q: Is it possible to have all birthdays put into a single thread?
    A: No. The idea of a birthday thread is to spot light a single member and have a place to share nice comments directed solely to the one member.

    Q: I changes the phrase but the master phrase is still being used.
    A: The Language ID in the Options needs to set to the language you want emails to be sent it. In the Admin Control Panel navigate to Languages and determine the Language ID by looking at the URL of the language you want to use. The URL will include a number which is the Language ID.​

    Let’s get personal, a great way to show members that you appreciate them, who does not like receiving a birthday greeting! Our members love knowing that someone has not forgotten them on their Birthday. Andy your attention to detail is impressive. Keep up the great work! Without some of your add-on’s our forum would not be as active as it has become. Nor would it be such a cool forum to belong. Thanks for the countless hrs of hard work you have put into all your add-on’s.

    EVERY time I search for a nice feature to add to my forum, it's already done. BY ANDY. There must be some conspiracy going on.. Either that, or you're a Simpson :)
    In any case, thank you for these little gems !
