    Apparently the forum software currently used here, on the KeePass Forum, is from the Sourceforge Allura project. A ticket has been opened regarding the lack of a discernible sort order in forum search results. If you are interested in monitoring or contributing to it see tickets: #5686 Discussion search needs improvement https://sourceforge.net/p/allura/tickets/5686/.

    I have given up using the forum search and use Google instead. I find it much more accurate and reliable.

    cheers, Paul

    Paul,

    Thanks, for the excellent suggestion. I have been very frustrated with the jumble of results that the forum software returns.

    Without the quotes, obviously.

    I have received a response from an allura developer. He provided a search example that illustrates the syntax required to add a date filter to search results.

    The following search terms will find posts mentioning "install" and posted since Feb 1 2013:

    install AND mod_date_dt:[2013-02-01T00:00:00Z TO *]

    Now all we need is the ability to filter the poster and sort by date and show additional columns and ....

    cheers, Paul

    The following search will limit the results to the poster. It would be nice if the operators, keywords and syntax for searching were discoverable :-(

    search for install plus paul after Feb 1, 2013:

    install +Paul AND mod_date_dt:[2013-02-01T00:00:00Z TO *]
