Hi,
I'm creating a knowledge database for a customer. Each entry / article has a "published on" field (as custom field). The customer would like to be able to search something like "published the last three months" or "older than 5 years". It is somehow possible to have such a search?

Best regards
Viviana

PS: I'm a fan of custom fields and selfmade overrides, but for this project EasyLayouts was the perfect choice!

A couple of questions:
1. Is this custom field a calendar type field?
2. Would a 2 input filter work? i.e. a before/after selector and a date input field?
3. Would it be ok to use the EasyLayouts filter module as the search mechanism?

1. At the moment it is a select field with a list of years (not really nice), but I can change it
2. I'm not sure what do you mean...
3. I'm using the filter module from EasyLayout (see the link in the private details, the page is under construction)

What I was envisaging was the following question to the user.

Search for articles published before [radiobox] or after [radiobox] year [select field]

Would you need 'on or after' and 'on or before' year questions?

The idea of the customer was to have a "published after..." or something like this:
in den letzten 12 Monaten (last 12 months)
in de letzten 3 Jahren (last 3 years)
in den letzten 5 Jahren (last 5 years)
in den letzten 10 Jahren (last 10 years)
in den letzten 15 Jahren (last 15 years)
älter als 15 Jahre (older than 15 years)

I don't know what is possible and realisable....

This 'could' be done but you would need a custom filter for your selections which I would need to charge a modest fee to implement.

Sorry for the late answer, the notification mail went to my spam folder :(
Can you please tell me how many do you want to charge for the development? I will talk to my customer about that.
Thank you

Demo Site

You can access our demo at https://demo.easylayouts.net.

You can easily switch EasyLayouts off and on again via a special module on the demo site and can also access the backend to experiment with the layouts. The demo resets every hour so bear in mind that the demo looks a bit odd that someone else may have changed the layouts before you viewed the page.
