Search: Displaying more than 500 results

Is there anyway for Search to yield more than 20 Pages of 25 results? Is that a default setting that can be changed somehow?

I don't know how to get search to display more than 500 results, but one thing I like to do is view all 500 on 3 pages... when the search results page comes up, I add "&pp=200" to the URL and reload the page. Then I open pages two and three in new windows. That way I don't risk search timing out, say, when I'm checking out new posts sinc emy last login. (Sometimes I get pulled away for a time while I'm in the midst of this.)

This is a limit set on the server, one thing you can do is to use a more limiting search term and or search conditions to narrow down your results. This will not give you more than 500 results, but will reduce the number of results (possibly below 500).

Thanks for that hint in suggestion gleff. I'll definitely use that in the future. But that's not solving the problem I want.

But, but, but... what if I want MORE than 500?

OK thanks Tim, I now understand this as a true technical issue/setting decided by the HOM. No worries.

I know what you mean, Chex.

On occasion (such as during current debates over OMNI post counts) I've wondered "how many posts have I made in OMNI?" I'd love to be able to search gleff and OMNI and get a full listing (I've probably ~ 600 times there over the past 6 years so I don't get the full list with a 500 limit).

Lo siento...

Bingo! Although there could be a small possible work around.

Tim (& Team), currently you can search on "Posts From:"
Any Date
A Week
2 Weeks
A Month
3 Months
6 Months
A Year Ago

Is it even possible to add options for 2 Years, 3 Years, etc., or ideally, a Specific Date?

It is possible to add new options, I have added a few new ones. I don't currently know of a way to to do specific dates. Thanks for the suggestion,

Very nice. That helps! Thanks.

There's a slight overlap, but how's this?
4/9/05 to today: 413
2/17/04 - 4/9/05: 500
8/29/03 - 4/8/04: 500
8/25/01 - 4/8/03: 373

Thanks, Chex, don't know why I hadn't ever considered breaking it up by date!

Nevermind. I see the link now in one of the header bars. I'm not sure, personally, how I will use this new functionality.

Thanks for offering though!

How did you do that? When I search new posts I only get a max of 500...?

Back down to 500 as my max

Guess it was just a momentarily glitch.
