    Huh? New Posts is usually more beneficial to registered users as it keeps track of read and unread status, recent posts doesn't (see my last post). You can surely change it on your site, it just won't happen here.

    I can only assume that he means that you have to click on "New Posts" before you can click on "Recent Posts". So, new posts is "shown first".

    Thanks! No I just wanted to change it on my site. I don't care about read or unread status.

    You should be able to pull in the correct link from the new posts template.

    This is it but
    Code:
    <li><a href="{xen:link find-new/posts, '', 'recent=1'}">{xen:phrase recent_posts}</a></li>
    If there are actually no new posts, that link won't work at all? What's the cut off date?
