Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Is there a way of listing only questions posted after a certain date? For instance if I click on the C++ tag, the search box shows [c++]. I'd like to edit the search box to have instead something like

[c++] after:2012-01-01 

to get all c++ posts that were added after Jan 1st.

You can't do this directly, so you might want to turn this into a feature-request. – Tim Stone Jan 8 '12 at 3:54

You can click the 'Newest' tab on Search Results to see the results of your query in descending order by date.

thx, this works. In addition, if I want unanswered questions, I can have search box [c++] answers:0 and click on Newest as you describe. I tried [c++] answers:0 answers:1 to get posts with either 0 or 1 answers (which I would then sort using Newest tab) but that didn't work. – Schollii Jan 8 '12 at 4:24
@Schollii: The SO search system is a bit weird that way. Tags and operators like answers:n are required in results (i.e. AND-search), while only one keyword must match (i.e. OR-search), unless prefixed by a +. – hammar Jan 8 '12 at 4:32

This has now been implemented.

Using your example:

[Is there a way] to get all c++ posts that were added after Jan 1st[?]

[c++] created:2012-01-01..

That gives all C++ questions asked after Jan 1st 2012. Add another date after the .. to restrict the search to before that date. For all the search options see the above link.
