FAQ

Why is the widget displaying the wrong date

Currently, the plugin uses your server clock to determinate today’s date. If there is a lot of difference between today’s date and what the plugin displays, your server clock is probably not set correctly. If there is a one day difference between today and what the plugin displays, your server is probably in a different timezone than you are. While it is not possible to fix an incorrectly set clock, there is a fix in the work to use the browser time to compensate for time zones differences.

Is the plugin compatible with versions of WordPress ealier to 2.8?

No. Because of the new widget implementation, you need to use WordPress 2.8 or later. If you are using an earlier version of WordPress, you can try using Born On This Day version 1.6.1 but, really, you should upgrade.
