Hi, Plugin does not work under 5.4 (Netherlands version). It does install, it adds birthday under user and birthday is saved under meta-data in correct format for my country (30-04-2020 is stored). But no birthdays are listed, not in frontend and not in backand. Lists stay empty. Further the date entry is clumsy as it is transparent.
