Is it possible to search for old post prior to a certain year? For example is I search for 9N points on 9,2,8N board I get 36,550 hits.
Nothing wrong with that except the early years had good info too and for some searches I would like to search for answers to early posts only.I am using 9N points as an example only.

Well, I am working on the search right now due to a problem mentioned below. If I understand correctly, you'd like to limit the search to a certain date range. I could do that but will have to think about how to implement it.

Thanks,
Chris

I use search function but I suspect many do not.
If it is a big deal to implement I will manage I am sure. I have thought about this for a few years.
Thank you!

No quite a few do and it would be a valuable option. I didn't get time to do that today given that it's Sunday. Should be priority one tomorrow.

Thanks,
Chris

I've looked at this quite a bit now. We have a bug in the search based on volume. We are up to many million threads now and the indexing still works well for words that aren't common. It seems words that get too many returns are hanging it and eventually aborting it. You get weird results when it finally comes back.

For now, don't search for a word that is too common without putting another word with it. For example, you can get good returns by putting in "FENDER ORCHARD" but just "ORCHARD" aborts. A word like "HOUSE" will do the same thing. If you go into google and type "ytmag.com: orchard", you get 182000 returns. I think it's having a problem like that when a word gets that many hits.

I will figure out what the core problem is soon. Just takes some debugging.
