What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

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.
