Hi Lefty, I am posting this message on this forum because it was rejected on the phpBB forum. I think it is an interesting question, if not delete it and you never see me asking this question again ;)

However, first I want to say the birthday email is great! I love this MOD and waiting for it a long time.

My question is, if it is possible to change the email variable "USERNAME" into a selfmade custom profile field names "FIRSTNAME". I tried to find something about how to use custom variables in emails, but it was not that well explained as how you explain your MOD.

Could you please tell us how it works to use custom variables in your great birthday email MOD?

Greetings, martijn

hi martijn,
i haven't actively written php code in a while so i would have to first refresh my knowledge again.

i dont have much time these days for phpbb but i will try to see if i can get round to it soon.
