How to search....

Post by d_baker » Wed Feb 17, 2021 11:22 am

....for the oldest thread and bring it back to the top.
This seems to be a common theme lately, so is there a search function by year? Search function for oldest post?

I'm watching a potholing company search for utilities at work, so I'm bored and have time. Lol

Under "Advanced Search"

"Display results as:" Topics
"Sort results by" Post Time, Ascending

If you can't walk, you crawl
If you can't crawl, you find someone to carry you

Or just go to the forum category and click on the last page, then find the last post to have been updated? I see one from 2006 asking about the Sand Dunes :mrgreen:

Sand Dunes would be a good topic right now.

That’s somewhat helpful but I’m guessing the OP is trying to suggest a more obvious way for folks to search past topics and know when they get something 4 years old vs much more recent. The trend lately is that folks seem oblivious to resurrecting old posts. I’m accidentally guilty of it too.

Yeah I've run into that problem too making duplicate topic...
My search skills don't always return the relevant original topic.

I wasn't meaning to point either of you out. I was more so thinking of randos that sign up and dig up old threads. And then disappear off the site.

Oh no worries I wasn't taking to mean me being called out.
