I want to display the users birthday when they log in next to where it shows their username and the option to sign out.

First of all, you need to add an extra field to the users database, which will keep the birthday value. An example from our guide on how to add a new extra field to users DB with the possibility to edit it on the Profile form contains all instructions.

Second, you will need to add this field to bb_cookie.php and assign it to some variable in the similar way as other login variables appear there.

At least, you will need to paste this variable in the template 'user_only_logged_in'.

Refer to our Premium service if you are in doubt on how to do it on your own.
