This is awesome, but I have a few questions:
First, I’ve noticed that any dates that I already have attached to my items remain as text fields even if I change the date field to Numeric:Timestamp in its related resource template, and as such don’t show up in the new date search. I can see how this would be great for new items, but I don’t know what to do about the close to 7,000 items I already have catalogued. Would I have to go into each one individually and re-enter their dates?
Second, my items have either a specific date (1947-12-31), month (1947-12) year (1947), or range (1947/1953 or 1947-09/1947-12 or 1947-12-15/1947-12-17). I was very careful to keep everything ISO 8601 compliant. Looking at this module, it seems to only allow a single date (or month or year) to be used, but not a range. Is that right? Ideally, I’d like for a date search for 1950 to pull up a folder with a date range from 1947 to 1953.
Thank you so, so much. This is a great step forward!
