    Ive noticed the date of birth cant be changed? so if someone used their real DOB when they joined the forums, they can not change it?

    also some parts of the forum don't work. under my account> general settings nothing loaded... get a syntax error...

    Well I don't know about any other members, but I do know that I was not reborn. Maybe you were expecting someone else???

    But I am suspecting that any hacker would have to break in or use some admin's password as per the note, assuming the option was set to hide the birthdate:
    Your date of birth and age are displayed in several places on the forum. Only the administrator will have access to your date of birth should you choose to hide it via the privacy option below. Please contact the Administrator if your date of birth has changed.


    But is a person's birthday date actually that vital or a critical part to any security breach???

    But they do ask me to confirm my birthdate when I go to the lab to provide a blood sample for my INR level. So maybe it is a sort of cross-check??? I don't know.

    You can only hide your date of birth, not change it. I thought at one time that profile item was editable by the user but apparently it was changed when the vBulletin software was updated. However, I will go into the master data base and remove your date of birth entirely. And... I will do the same for any other member who wishes it also. Just let me know.

    I can't explain why your profile settings will not load. I just tried mine and they worked fine.

    I put a fake DOB in mine so no big deal.

    if I go to My account> edit profile> general settings, I get this.

    syntax error, unexpected 'text' (T_STRING) on line 1 in /home/macforums/public_html/forums/profile.php(4826) : eval()'d code(67) : eval()'d code
    #0 /home/macforums/public_html/forums/profile.php(4826): eval()
    #1 /home/macforums/public_html/forums/dbseo.php(500): require('/home/macforums...')
    #2 {main}

    For your records, I get exactly the same thing which I believe I referred and implied to a few days ago as a reply post about the page not working properly.

    What happens if you select "settings" from the upper right hand menu item (next to your My Profile) at the top of the page?

    For myself, that's the only way I can get to my Settings, and that page shows just as macgig posted above.
    i.e.: syntax error, unexpected 'text' (T_STRING) on line 1 in … etc.

    Okay. That page works fine for me and should work for everyone else. I'm going to look at your profile in the master data base to see if there are any errors showing up. Stand by....

    I just checked your profile in the master data base and everything looked okay. I'm not sure why the settings page seems to not be working for you and macgig. We will have a look at it in more detail when Nick gets back from traveling. In the meantime, if anyone needs something changed like DOB or whatever, let me know and I can make the changes.

    Hey Charlie, I'm not sure if this helps identify the problem but here's what happens for me. When I read this thread earlier I wnet to the Settigns page and it loaded fine. At that time I didn't test the links. A few minutes ago I tested the links on the left. If I click the "General Settings" it creats the sanme error the guys are seeing.

    For me, the "General Settings" link appears to be the only one generating an error.

    Ah... okay Sly.

    I just tested what you said and you are correct. I now get the same syntax error.

    I would say for now, just avoid the "General Settings" and go directly to the item you wish to change. DOB can't be changed anyway except by an Administrator. Don't ask me why we even need that particular item?

    Certainly not a super vital problem I wouldn't think, and not much difference to their erroneous posting timestamp for some users.

    But I sure hope you don't need to use any of their support videos they have at their site: https://www.vbulletin.com/en/learn-more/

    I took a quick look at some which were rather pathetically done, and I couldn't even understand what the girl was talking about even with the volume turned up with one such tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RjgPRAXSWXA

    Anyway, you probably don't have to deal with them, and good luck on your problem-solving. Sort of odd that one would have to fix the site that helps people fix their problem eh???
