Can I, as a user, easily find topics started on a particular date?

Scenario: People start very particular types of topics on certain dates, such as April First, and I, a user who was away from the world on that date, might want to go back and find them easily. And while scrolling sort-of works, it works less well if I want to compare to the previous year’s topics.

I suspect the answer is “No”, only someone with database access can easily do that, but I wanted to check.


You can use search parameters. Just type in seach bar.

  • after:2017-03-31 before:2017-04-02

You can also add other options under advanced search. You might hit the 50 results cap.


Close, but not exactly what I was asking for: that finds posts, not topics, but given that the first post of a topic is included, it does show up, albeit harder to find:

Add in:first to the search. That should limit it to the first post of each topic.



Thanks, that seems to be the winner.

You can scroll down and search results are no longer limited to 50 results.
