Set forum search to only look back 2 years?


  • Plugin Developer

    I search the MySensors forum quite a bit, and often the first hits are from 4 years ago. They are almost never useful, as the code and often the concepts are outdated.

    Would it be possible to set the default search window to just 2 years ago? Or whenever MySensors 2.0 was released?

    Advanced search could still be used by anyone that wants to find older posts. But in general I think this could be a 'sane default'.

    Nice idea.
    The parameters to control search depth are timeRange (in seconds) and timeFilter=newer.
    @hek do you know if there is an easy way to add those parameters to the default search?

    One potential big problem: if people search for for example how to migrate from a 1.x sketch to 2.x, that guide is more than 2 years old and they would not find any relevant posts. Most people would then just give up, unless they are made aware that their search is limited.

    In that case they might try Google/DuckDuckGo, and still find it anyway.

    Sorry, can't find any way of setting default options this this for the Solr forum plugin.

    Neither could I. Tried to trace the html elements and javascript but there doesn't seem to be anything that is easily configurable.
