Hi all, just to know, is there anyway to search by date, lets say I want to get the posts from Jan1st to see the current posts. How to search for that?
Why I am asking is if yesterday I have logged in to DSXchange and if I have like 50 new posts since my previous login, and if I couldnt go thru all of them yesterday for any reason, today when I logged in again, I am not getting the posts that I have missed yesterday. So is there anyway to search by date?

You have an option to with the "Search Options" to restrict the search based on the time period.
But I don't think we can search all posts without giving any search term for a period of time.
The feature would be nice to have.

For example in the "Search for Author:" put your username.
Below in the "Search Options", select "1 Day"
This will give you a result as to how many post you have answered in.

There has to be search criteria and search term mentioned in the "Search Query" for the "Search Options" to come in play.
An option to search based on only data criteria would be an enhancement to this functionality.

I've added another option to the search page:

Image

Although it is similar to the "Search previous" option, "Search Last 'X' Days" allows a little more control, since you can put in any number of days.

You can use this in conjunction with search terms or a search by author.

It also has the added bonus that you can search using this field only, something that did not work when using "Search previous." This effectively allows you to go back and see only those posts that were made during that time. This might be useful if you have been on vacation but your "unread" posts have somehow been marked as "read."

Please post any bug reports or problems in this forum. Thanks and enjoy!

Mostly true, although I did sleep pretty well last night, now that we're home from the hospital. It's certainly a challenge...I think I've just been itching to code something for the last five days.
