sorry, I had forgotten to cc to the list last time :-)

I'm using version 2.52. The Javascript now works, thanks to your advice.

But I'm still having problems with building the list:

I'd like to sort on the date when the item was added. Shouldn't I write
"-sort lastmodified" then? In addition, the list should be sorted
descending, with the most recent date on top. I guess a look at the
manual would tell me how to control the number of items shown on the
list, but if you can answer that faster, I'd be much obliged :-)

The really puzzling thing is: For some reason I get lots of empty
records shown on the "last modified" list, with no file links; ranging
from about two to 20 empty records in between full ones ...

Thanks again, and best regards,

Birgit
