Project Description

I need a search widget or external search page for my WordPress site that allows entry of search terms in the usual way along with an optional date range. The search function needs to search only posts whose post date was within the specified range (if any was entered). Then it needs to display each found occurrences of the search word in context -- for example, listing the 2-3 lines around the line of text in each post where it was found so the searcher can see how the search word appeared. It also needs to provide a link to the post in case the searcher wants to read the entire post (note: I don't want to see the entire post in the search results, just the excerpts with links). I had an old custom plugin that did this, but it's outdated. It seems that free and paid plugins can do this with some configuration and I'm willing to buy one if necessary. Ideally the search results would be returned within a page in my theme.
