Historical search limited

When I look for a torrent my search results seem to be limited to the year 2017. I look for something e.g.: mp3 torrent that was released in say 2014 but I get no result. Does anyone know why my search is limited to around the last 12 months?


  • Torrent search results are limited by date because old torrents usually have no seeds.
    We used to not filter these but that ended up in an incredible amount of complaints because files would never download.

    You're still however free to search for older torrents outside of FrostWire and open them with FrostWire if you can't find what you're looking for.

  • perhaps we could add a setting to let in older search results, what do you think?

    Thanks, gubatron. I don't want to upset the other Frostwire users so I'll leave that decision to the Frostwire gurus.
