I installed this Plugin successfully.
How to enable this one?

Well. The block for Moodle 2.3 works ok. But I miss the old text method for the birthday date because I could upload students birthday. The Unix time stamps are not viable with this approach because I would have to translate the birthdays with a tool like
one by one! So you have to expect the student to update his birthday on his own - not very likely.

Ravi - The best place for questions is in the Contributed plugins forum -
- the birthday block is enabled like any other block. Peace - Anthony

Adolfo - If you use Excel or LibreOffice Calc there should be functions that you can use to do the conversion and then save the file with the data as a unix timestamp. This would prevent you from doing it one by one. If you would like, feel free to create an issue in the
for a feature request. I may be able to think of a way upon inserting the data to validate and during that check if it is not a unix timestamp to convert it to one. Peace - Anthony
