Ability to search between two dates

Post by producer123 » Sun Apr 15, 2018 6:34 pm

The search function of a discussion board is very important, because one needs to be able to retrieve information, and as quickly as possible.

The current search function provides the possibility to search through all posts, or limit the results to the previous days/weeks/months and a maximum of 1 year. This is useful for searching through recent posts, but if you have a forum that is active for several years and you want to search for something from say the year 2008, you run into a usability problem.

Therefore I propose the addition of an option to search between two dates, which can be very helpful, especially for searching for older posts.

I don't know if such has already been proposed or planned, but I couldn't find that.
