Default Forum search options?

Just curious if you can refine your search to be by date...I do searches, but it doesn't show any dates as to how old the thread is. Can you search and sort or add in parameters to show most recent?

Are you using the Google Custom Search box right above the reply window, or using the Search button on the black bar?

I always use the Search button and go to "advanced search". I don't think you can select a date range, but it does list the threads chronologically, with the newest ones first.

I reversed my threads, they go in order from the getgo... That way, I get the whole story...

I normally throw the search through the search bar that is provided in the full site view (says google search). I tried to follow a thread on here that said where to go to find the thread settings, but one of the menus that was given is not on mine? I didn't get an option in that bar for an advanced search...

Edit: It's the search bar under the black bar at top of screen sorry

OK OBVIOUSLY I was being a dink and I found it...changed linear-newest.

But it's not working yet...Will it take effect once I log out and log back in? Wanted to do a search on red sable. 1st thread that pulled up was in 2012, second was 2013?

And oh no, I don't like the linear-new it doesn't show the original post 1st, just the most recent doh! OK going to play around I must be doing something incorrectly

If you go to the black bar on the top and hit "Search", it will bring up a little popup and just hit "Advanced Search" for way more options (search in a specific forum, by specific author, etc.)! Sometimes you may have to put your search term in quotes if it's got super common words in it - I just tried with red sable (no quotes) and it said the word "red" was "either very common, too long, or too short" but it did work with both words in quotation marks.

Here's where I go for searches:



I select Advanced Search and get this window:



I see you can search by date from here, although I never do. You can also search by forum or username. I use the keyword search on the left, and you can either search entire posts for that word or just thread titles. My settings, which I believe are the defaults, show the results of threads that have that keyword, not each individual post, and sort with the most recent thread first (last posting date).

Since I'm not enough of a genius to know how to do a screenshot, they're actually cell phone pictures, lol.
