Is it possible to search by date?
Posted on: 06/30/12 09:49AM

Imagine it's been 5 days since the last time i visited Gelbooru and so, i am back, there are plenty of new images, but, i am clueless if i wanted to start off where i left off last time, because the last pictures i have seen are somewhere far into the deeper pages. Could it be around page 120? 198? 231? So, i was wondering if there is a way to search for a picture or search for a date, and get directed to the page where that image/images with said date are placed at amidst the Gelbooru pages.

There isn't really a way to search for images from a specific date, but you can search for images with a specific post ID range.

What I'd recommend is writing down, favoriting, or bookmarking the post ID of the last image you've viewed. You can then use the id:>postid and sort:id:asc tags to form a search. If, for example, the last image you viewed was post ID 1500000, the search would look like this:

id:>1500000 sort:id:asc

This will result in a listing of posts that were posted after the one you viewed, but in chronological order starting from oldest and ending with the newest. For example, the posts you'd find from that search would be listed in the order of 1500001, 1500002, 1500003, 1500004, etc. This means that you can pick up right where you left off.

It most likely will be implemented at some point, but since using ID's works, even if it's a bit unweildy, there are other things that have priority, so I can't say when it'll be implemented.

The 0.2.x code, which is what the live site currently runs, is closed source and there are only four people authorized to access it, so you would be unable to help. The 0.3.x code will be open source, but it currently isn't complete enough to release.
