Is there a way to automatically add a yearly recurring event in the main site calendar when a user signs up and includes their date of birth?  

Thanks.

Maybe I am wrong but I thought it did.
Hmm Maybe I am to used to using IPB.

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.

Individual members may choose to overlay the birthday RSS feed onto the calendar. The URL to the feed would be:
<YOUR_BASE_URL>/backend.php?type=rss&mode=ocf_birthdays
When you visit the calendar it gives you the option to add the RSS URLs.

Tried the RSS thing, but the entries don't remain after I navigate away from the page.  Also, would this only apply to my view of the calendar or to anyones?

Is it possible your cookie settings aren't correct?

This is only for your view, yes. We might consider making a change in the future, but I can't guarantee it.
