Hacking drupal: Add search by node creation date and the author

Some of the users using one of my Drupal sites were asking for search by author and creation date. The site had 3000+ nodes and the user’s request seemed reasonable enough. I first started with googling for a Drupal module or a patch that would add the functionality, but none were found.

So when ahead and hacked the node module. I sucessfully managed to add search by author and node creation date to advanced search block. If you are in searching for a patch like I did you can find it at http://drupal.org/node/233476, I’m keeping my fingers crossed to see whether it would make it to the Drupal trunk :).
