@AndyB any chance to include option to create no new thread but new post in existing thread?
I have just one old thread for birthdays (no sense for new thread for every new birthday).
Could you expand this mod (and for XF 1.5) so it will create new post in existing thread, not new thread for every birthday in some forum?

Are the screenshots up to date?

If so, there are a few thing you should change
  • Change the Forum ID Spin Box to a proper forum select (Edit Format PHP Callback, Format Parameters \XF\Option\Forum::renderSelect)
    A spin box for an ID field makes absolutely no sense (at least to me)
  • Likewise, the usergroup Field should be replaced with a proper Usergroup Select
  • Get rid of the password field
  • Refactor the Controller into a proper Cron Entry
