Searching this Support Forum with date limits (5 posts)

    I may have missed this somewhere, but is there a way to search this support forum with date limitations?
    Many times I'll have a topic I'm looking for answers about, and when I search I do get results, but many of them are very old and out of date. It would be nice to be able to limit responses to say, the last year, or month.
    Is that possible???

  2. Via google, sure.

    Go to Google and run your search, then click the Custom range... link in the left sidebar, next to your search results. This will pop up a date-picker menu that you can set to any range you like. You can fill in both the From and To dates, or just use one or the other.

    I am aware of the Google options; I was hoping there would be similar in this (wordpress.org support) forum.

    If not, sure would be valuable if they added it.

  4. Oh yes, it would be useful. But the problem is Google kind of nailed search. Everyone else is playing catchup, and we're not all capable of making anything that good :/ So ... yeah, we suggest google.
