Search for the language constant

On the right side of the language override form you can search for a constant. Here is a list of the commonly wanted constant for SchuWeb Birthday.

  • SW_KBIRTHDAY_SUBJECT - used for 'forum thread' and 'e-mail' feature of SchuWeb Birthday
  • SW_KBIRTHDAY_MESSAGE - used for 'forum thread' and 'e-mail' feature of SchuWeb Birthday
  • SW_KBIRTHDAY_HAVEBIRTHDAYIN - used to display the birthday in the module
    • %1$s -> name
    • %2$s -> SW_KBIRTHDAY_DAY(S)
    • %3$s -> SW_KBIRTHDAY_ADD_AGE
    • %4$s -> SW_KBIRTHDAY_DATE

Keep in mind to use the placeholders in the correct meaning. You can use those in any order in your string as long they written exactly the same way.
