Would like to see a date filter

Post by cjsebes » Fri Jun 12, 2009 8:13 pm

First, I really like SearchTempest. It's what CL should have done a long time ago. Kudos!

That said, I'd like to be able to filter my searches by date, perhaps only going back the last week, two weeks, three weeks, month or unrestricted. This way I'm not looking through post I've already seen.

Keep up the good work!
Chris

Hi Chris,

I'd love to do that, but for reasons discussed in the FAQ, it's actually not possible. That said, one thing you could try is always opening the first ad in each city, whether you're interested in it or not. That way, (if you're using firefox, which you should be ;) ), it'll be highlighted in the future and you'll know not to look any further. Some people have found this to be a useful work-around, others have found it more trouble than it's worth. YMMV :)

Thanks for the reply. I guess I should have read the FAQs first, eh?

Currently I'm using this "Poor Man's Date Log" that' you're describing. It will have to do.

Kudos on Search Tempest!
Thanks again.
