Running into an error. The reason I need to change the join date is because an old account was merged into the new account after my board's creation. Seems the plugin doesn't like the fact that I'm trying to create a join date before the board's creation. I need the join date to be 08/15/2014.

I was counting the seconds until someone fall in that situation:

The oldest date allowed will be the forum installation date (board_start in conf_global.php)

This is not an error. It just doesn’t make sense allow you to change to a date BEFORE the date the board was installed. 

Do you have FTP access to make a change in conf_global.php? If so, tell me date you want to set as the board installation then you will change and you will be able to change the date of this member. 

 

Would it be 08/15/2014 the board was installed?

Yes, 08/15/2014. I am able to FTP and make changes to the conf_global.php file.

My site was created in 2014 however we migrated to IPS last April.

Ok, so download and open conf_global.php and find board_start on it. You will see a 10 digits number. Change that sequence of numbers to 1407974400 and then save and upload the file. Now you’re able to change the member joined date to 08/15/2014.

Genius!

Thank you. Worked as described.

My profile now displays my original account creation date before our IPS migration!

Compatible with IPS 4.4.

I just purchased this for my forum, but I'm not using version 4.5 yet (I'm on 4.4).  I tried to select the latest version from the change log (the only one that appeared was from December 1, 2019) and tried downloading it, and apparently it wasn't found.

Could I get a copy of the 4.4 version?
