I am hooking up a new light in my bathroom. the old light has 4 posts on the back of it. On one side there is 2 white wires hooked up and on the other side 1 red wire, and then there is 2 black wires tied together not hooked to anything.
On the new light, there is only the standard 1 black, 1 white, and the ground wire. Im not sure how this one should be hooked up. I need some help please:help:
Thanks in advance

Red is your switched hot ... white is your neutral. Connect the red to your fixture black and the fixture white to the other 2 whites. Leave the 2 blacks that are connected together as they are.
