[Koha] limits on canned OPAC searches

Hi everyone

We have a little drop-down option on our OPAC that we call "New Titles" - it basically brings up a reverse-chronological listing of books or ebooks on the catalogue:

<form name="searchform" method="get" action="/cgi-bin/koha/opac-search.pl">
<input name="idx" value="kw" type="hidden">
<input name="sort_by" value="acqdate_dsc" type="hidden">
<input name="do" value="OK" type="hidden">
<select name="limit" onchange="this.form.submit()">
<option>-- Display new titles to the collection --</option>
<option value="mc-itype:BOOK">New books</option>
<option value="mc-itype:EBK">New ebook</option>

Is there a way we could improve this by limiting results to a time range (preferably "last 6 months" or something like that)? And excluding material that is "Ordered"?

With kind regards from the Dalton McCaughey Library Team
