Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

I've had a look through previous questions on Meta and haven't been able to find an answer to this. Does StackOverflow provide any ability to search by date?

For example, if I wanted to search for all questions tagged Python in the last 3 days, is that possible? Or all Haskell questions in October?

This has now been implemented.

 

For example, if I wanted to search for all questions tagged Python in the last 3 days, is that possible?

[python] created:2014-02-22..2014-02-24

 

Or all Haskell questions in October?

Assuming October 2013:

[haskell] created:2013-10

Sort of.

  • Do your search
  • Then sort results by Newest
  • Then jump pages until you're at a range that fits inside your time period.

I'd like to get this information programatically. I guess it's possible with this method, just a bit cumbersome. I actually only want the number of questions, not the content. – Dan Dyer Jan 13 '10 at 1:04

The data dump would provide this sort of information (until up to a month ago) pretty easily. It's obviously not an online search though.
