I’ve been using DuckDuckGo as my standard search engine for a couple of years now, but have just joined the discussion forum for the first time for the express purpose of posting this request. I see this topic has been suggested before, but let me just add my plea for an advanced search page similar to Google’s. Yes, I know there is a search syntax I can use to sharpen my search terms, but it is clumsy and not user-friendly. I find myself still resorting to Google when I want to do a more focused search such as restricting to a specific domain or date range.

The DuckDuckGo platform is sufficiently mature by now that it is high time to add a more sophisticated advanced search facility. This is an essential feature for a truly useful search engine. **Please** make it a high priority to add one, with a convenient link for reaching it from the main splash page.
