XF 1.4 Allow Visitors View New Posts and Recent Posts


When visitors (not registered members) they cannot view the link for "recent posts" and "new posts" at the top of the page.

One needs to be registered to view these links.

How do I change this so visitors can see these 2 links? (just these 2 links, I do not want a sidebar).

Many thanks.

Guests are able to access "recent posts".
The concept of "new posts" doesn't apply to guests as there is no read marking data stored for them.

Have you edited the navigation template?

That link should show to guests.
<li><a href="{xen:link 'find-new/posts'}" rel="nofollow">{xen:if $visitor.user_id, {xen:phrase new_posts}, {xen:phrase recent_posts}}</a></li>
