Before and after are not implemented right in search

@Gunnar is travelling today, so it will be a while until he can provide that info.

A search for “after:2018-07-18” (i.e. after tomorrow) still yields the same 37 hits.

I also noticed that opening the link here:

Changes it from “after” to “before”, which I presume is an unrelated bug.


Yeah this is pretty dodge… back in the day my implementation was after:5 and before:5 where 5 is the number of days ago.

Somehow a date snuck in … somehow the advanced UI gets confused between before and after.

It shows as the screen shot when the tab opens, hitting refresh doesn’t change anything, but hitting the search button then back corrects it.

EDIT (not enough coffee yet): The list of hits that it lands with, before clicking anything, is apparently correct.
