Hey all,

I'm wondering if i can use the search function I have setup for my blog to search by the date of the post?

Currently it is set up to search the text of the blog (and i have a tag filter set up for custom tags) and i'd ilke to be able to search by month and year also. Here's the code presently in page.php


function SearchForm(){
$searchText = isset($_REQUEST['Search']) ? $_REQUEST['Search'] : 'Search / ';
$fields = new FieldSet(
new TextField("Search", "", $searchText)
$actions = new FieldSet(
new FormAction('results', ' ')
$homePage = DataObject::get_one('HomePage');
$controller = new Page_Controller($homePage);
return new Form($controller, "SearchForm", $fields, $actions);


Would love some help to work this out.
