I allready searched the forum and internet but haven't found a solution.

I would like to add a user field in the registration form where users can fill in their birthdate.
We work wit ACYSMS to send birthday sms's with a coupon code.

I've tried the date field, result: Datepicker shows only this year (2016) Not usefull for a birthdate.
I've tried the age verification, result: Date gets picked correct, but when I save this, the database field stays empty.

How can I add a date field with a datepicker in the user registration of virtuemart on my website.

I work with joomla Joomla! 3.6.2 and  VirtueMart 3.0.16

Thank you for a quick reply!

Don't know why birthday doesn't save but u can change the date range in
administrator\components\com_virtuemart\helpers\vmjsapi.php ~ line 782





or play around with the call in administrator\components\com_virtuemart\models\userfields.php
