"Recent Posts" Pages for Vbulletin 3.8.4

Hi - I have a new Vbulletin 3.8.4 forum and I need to create a page/pages of Recent posts comprising a chronological list of posts starting from most recent and going back for at least a week.

Is there a setting change that will allow this, or a Mod ?

I'm sure I've seen this done on VB sites and it was one of the main reasons my members wanted to move from our old freeforum.

To clarify, instead of "New Posts" that disappear when "read" I want a listing of posts from newest going to backwards (Say 7 days). I've tried looking around the forums for a lead on this, but most entries seem to refer only to a little box with the latest 10 or so posts.

"Today's Posts" is the nearest I've found to what I want - but for a new or small forum, its not long enough a list.

Any help much appreciated.

You can edit the Today's Posts link to search further back in time. Add &days=10 to the link.

I did that, I set it to search for 10 days, but the page seems to be hard coded to say "Search: Posts From Last Day" at the top of the results table, any way to make this say "Posts from the last 10 days" or even just "Recent Posts" so as not to confuse anyone... it's definitely showing 10 days worth of posts.

I changed it in Phrases to "Recent Posts"
