    How to search yesterday, or 2 days ago

    LOL, I know I have been with the forum since day 2, but here is a funny question. I cannot figure out how to list the treads that had activity (new or updated) in the last X number of days.
    The quick link for today's post is great, but only list todays. Yesterday night for example there were 14 threads updated, but I did not have time to check them, so when I went today to try to see them I could not find a way.
    Any idea??

    This is a great idea. I don't know how they do it, but my local newspaper has the ability to see news items for each of the preceding seven days.

    Fill in the date range option on the search page, or google site:techzonez.com (search string), go to advanced search, and set the time period optipn.

    "Oh, and by the way, 'You're welcome.'"

    Last night, I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I'll never know.
    love, piaqt

    I can set the date range in the search, but it won't let me search an empty search (and thus it will filter the results by the word I put)
    I tried using wild cards like *, but it actually looks for the * symbol.
    The google solution works, but it would be nice if it was an option inside the forum

    Hey Dehc, I've been requesting this feature since Day 3 ! Haha...

    I think it's a limitation of VB... maybe Version 4 has this feature, but will Rev risk it?! haha!

    well, I guess I will have to bookmark the Google part. Maybe,we could add the Google workaround in a page. I am sure we have a member that is a decent programmer. I honestly can reverse engineer code, but I suck at writing it.
