    Search Facility

    Is it possible to search one's posts by setting a start and end date so that one doesn't have to troll through the whole posts?

    From a standard Search dialog, you can Search for yourself by Username, and restrict the time frame to Most Recent by x hours/days/weeks/months/years. You cannot restrict the Listing from the Profile/Controls dialogs.

    Thank you John,
    Where do you select Most Recent by x hours/days/weeks/months/years?

    As John explicitly mentioned, you can *not* do that in Search Profiles, but you can in Search Posts.

    Oh, sorry John, scrap the previous message, I had never realised you could search by username in the left portion of the Search window. <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15>
    Indeed, it'd be nice to be able to search within a time range, otherwise, if you're looking for something way back, you still have to retrieve all the posts that came afterwards. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Thank you Hans, as I was saying to John, it'd be nice to be able to search within a time range, otherwise, if you're looking for something way back, you're still bound to retrieve all the posts that came afterwards. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    In the past there have been Lounger (including me) requests to empower the search engine, but Lounge Admin has explained that more powerful searches will severly impede Lounge performance. So what you got is what you're gonna get! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    More search options would certainly be handy. But the Lounge software is old and uses a lot of processor power. Adding advanced search facilities would cause the server to become overburdened.
    If we switched to newer software, we would lose many of the features that make the Lounge unique.

    If those are the conditions that prevail...let's keep the Lounge uniqueness and stick with what we have.
    Thank you guys!!! <img src=/S/hugs.gif border=0 alt=hugs width=41 height=25>
