I have a form which will have a date range split into day month year as 3 individual HTML select options for FROM and TO -

From: SELECT option day, month year

To: SELECT option day, month, year

I need to search on a channel field of type date (Currently stored as a UNIX time stamp)

What would be the best solution to get the entire range to search and how best to convert the date supplied?

I am not seeing the default search functionality will help me?

There are two search addons that may help:

Low Search

Limiting entries by a given range, based on channel fields;

Super Search

Anything you might want to search for... keywords, channels, categories, statuses, authors, custom fields, date ranges, custom field numeric ranges, etc, can be loaded into a single URI segment with the Super Search syntax.
