Is there anyone who has seen something like this or can think of how to do something like this? i want to create a box that will announce birthdays for my guild members. something a little more personal than hey your a member lol. If there is anyone who can think of a neat way to do this it would be great cuz i can picture it but don't actually know how to put something like this into effect

I don't have anything fancy, although what I do is have a marquee scroll across the top to announce stuff like that. It's not automatic, but it's kind of cool and easy to do.

Freeform Content box, switch to HTML mode ( in the lower left corner of editor):

<marquee><font style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #aa4444" color=#ffffff size=5>Your message here</font></marquee>


Looks like this:

Your message here


You can change the colors and font size to what suits you.

Anyway, I'm sure others will have cool ideas as well.

Ok I have another thought i was trying to play with about birthdays and stuff. does anyone know if there is a way to implement a calendar that all members of site can use aside from the original raid and event calendar? That way members can add whatever they want to this calendar such as birthdays and holidays and stuff? I do not know if this is possible or not but thought i would put it out there anyways and see what you all might be able to come up with
Thanks again

I remember Mottie mentioning something about embedding a Google calendar for certain types of events. I never used it, but here was the link that reminded me of it. He could prob explain better:

what we do on our website is allow all "members" of the portal forums (aka they have registered) have the ability to post events.

Allowing your members to post events (including birthdays, anniversaries)  allows your guild to promote commraderie.

give your member sthe ability to post for themselves and promote it!

I guess using some type of embedded calendar that will do the work for you is ok...but...

Our members post in a Birthday forum what day their Birthday is and I keep up with them. Instead of just posting the same ole' stuff for every Birthday, I prefer to make each one different. It really makes that member feel special.

If anyone reads this today..August 25th, 2008...go to our website and see what we did for one of our officer's 78th Birthday.
