  • date sorting the search results?

    Dumb question probably: In the search box here I want to look for references to “Handbrake”. Quite reasonably I get back many hundreds of pages from the last 10+ years. I’d really like to review only those for the last few years. How can I sort the results by date or limit them by date?

    Hi Brian,

    Not a dumb question at all! Our former search engine had this feature, and we will be bringing it back.

    As is sometimes the way in software development, individual legacy features are sometimes left behind so that foundations for new architectures can be properly laid. We’re only a few months into the new platform, and we’re making good progress at buttoning up the loose ends of the transfer so that we can get on to building the new stuff. We were very proud of our old search engine (built years before Google existed), and have big plans for the new one.

    I’m sorry I don’t have a date for you, but search filtering is on its way back, even more fully features than before.

    OK Tim but I warn you, I’m now holding my breath! 😉

    Still no sort options in search – I hope you’re not still holding your breath!

    OK, you’ve got me, I’ve been taking the odd sneaky breath but I’m still looking forward to the feature!
