I installed this zimlet, and it seems to work well. All the birthdays are gathered and entered into a calendar.
The only problem is that it interprets UK dates in the US format. This means that dd/mm/yyyy is interpreted as mm/dd/yyyy. A birthday that occurs on 12th April therefore occurs on 4th December etc.
Also, is it possible to collect birthdays from shared calendars? I couldn't see how to make that happen.
Seems as if this nice zimlet isn't working anymore in the 7.x series. Will there be an update?
I have the same issue as Simonalane.
I correct the "bug" with the following change in birthdayreminder.js
diff -e ../birthdayreminder.js.ori birthdayreminder.js488c var normalizedBD = this._normalizeDate(tmparry, tmparry, tmparry);.
347c var birthday = this._normalizeDate(tmparry, tmparry, tmparry);.
After this change and new installation, the zimlet work fine on my 7.1.4_GA_2555.RHEL5_64
Best Regard and many thanks
After a birthday change in the contact, i run the script again and display me the old birthday Date.
After a Logout/Login, the birthday date was displayed correctly.
Are the zimlet work well on ZCS 8.0 ? I have this one, and I see no happened anything after I press "Scan Address book scan" :-(
