Birthday Sidebar v1.0

Sunday, September 10th, 2006

Riding on the back of my Yahoo-Members-Map plugin I have added a new pluggable sidebar option to the fold with Birthday bar.

When you install Members-Map a Date of Birth field is added to your users’ profile page. Birthday Bar keeps tabs on them and warns you and other site visitors who has birthdays in the next two weeks.

In version 2 I will be adding auto email to users on their birthday and auto-post to blog (using postie plugin or WP-email2blog) to add a post automatically on a members birthday including a random birthday card image.

Never miss another important date. Great for Family Blogs.

So You Want To Moderate Blog Registrations?

10 Steps to make your Blog Registration by Admin Approval
This is a hack not a plugin but it’s painless and really works! (works with v2.0 not checked for v2.1)


You want users to be able to register but want to approve the registrations before you send the password for entry
You want to automate the process


User registers and is told a password will follow upon approval
Admin receives email with direct link to approve user
Admin clicks “Approve User” and “Send Welcome Mail”
User receives logon password by email


Auto delete a user if you don’t approve the registration. (Just use the normal Delete Option form the Authors/Users screen)
