Is there a way to change the sort order for a weekly alert on a blog? I would like to list the newest post first. It is displaying the oldest.

No, unfortunately not from out of the box sharepoint 2007 for blogs, wikis, libraries, lists, etc.

Might require third party tools.

what about creating a copy of the Alerttemplates.xml as described here:

http://blogs.msdn.com/b/sharepointdeveloperdocs/archive/2007/12/07/customizing-alert-notifications-and-alert-templates-in-windows-sharepoint-services-3-0.aspx

what template is used for blogs?

How do I change the sort order?

You will need to log onto your server in this location via:

C:\\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\Template\XML directory

Not really sure how you can change the sort order, but the following link may help you:

Just beware that you should try this in a testing environment and not production.

Do you think there is another way to go about what I want to accomplish? I only want to apply this change to a specific blog alert...
