I don't know if this can be supported by the forum software, but one thing I would like to filter threads by is a date search. I think it would be useful since a lot of threads go back to 2007, possibly earlier, to be able to search within the last year, within 3 or 6 months, or even within the last week. I'm thinking of the search filter that Google uses, but it doesn't have to be that inclusive.

The eiC date filter isn't as versatile as Google's, but you can search by posts that are newer than a certain date. It helps narrow down the search quite a bit. I've noticed a couple bugs in the search feature on the mobile devices since the last forum upgrade. I've mentioned them to Chris and they are currently being addressed. You have to press the search button twice to invoke it in portrait mode and the date selection is flaky.
