When a user registers for my forum, there is a checkbox under the Birthday field. The checkbox does not have any title or explanation. I collect birthday information, but do not require it. Can anyone tell me why the checkbox is appearing, what it is for, and how I can eliminate it?

Maybe your Style settings are preventing it from being visible (highlight the area and see if you can read the text)

It's probably the "Show birthday in calendar and profile" option

PS - I like how you don't need to fill out the year now, to have your birthday saved for the calendar cool

Good suggestion - I hadn't thought of that. Unfortunately, I tried to highlight the area, but it really is blank.

I was attempting to visit your test site to see this for myself, but it seems you're not accepting registrations...

I'd like to take a gander at the raw html to see what exactly is being dropped by the browser (or not included by the forum)

Additionally, what is checked in the registration settings having to deal with birthdays?

I'm not sure why my forum wasn't accepting your registration, but it seems to be working ok now. The forums are at www.usawks.com/forums/ubbthreads.php. Also, I've tried toggling the birthday item between "Required" and "Optional," but it doesn't change the blank item. Here is what it looks like:

Humm odd, no html is being displayed period (just tried it on your site)

Have you done any editing to the wordlets/language files?

More specifically, what does the value (in editbasic.php) for SHOWBDAY say? (It should say "Show birthday in calendar and profile.")

Yeah, did you edit any language files?

This is weird...!

Code
<td class="alt-1" width="50%">
       
</td>
<td class="alt-1" width="50%">
<input name="USER_PUBLIC_BIRTHDAY" value="1" class="form-checkbox" type="checkbox">
</td>
</tr>

All I can say is, works for me...! confused

Running 7.0 final. I'm new to UBB.threads, just recently moved from UBB.classic. Would the script that transferred my forum from classic to threads have anything to do with it?

This is actually a bug. If you don't have the checkbox checked to show birthdays in the calendar then the language string is empty.

The fix. Edit line 280 of scripts/newuser.inc.php

Currently you'll see where it has

SHOWBDAY2

that should read:

SHOWBDAY_NOCAL

Thanks, Rick.

Is there any way that I can have the birthday checkbox checked by default?

This should work... add " CHECKED " to

LINE 289:

<input type="checkbox" name="USER_PUBLIC_BIRTHDAY" value="1" class="form-checkbox" CHECKED />

Where can I find the checkbox option to show birthdays in the calendar?
