I am listing all articles from categories, which are in a specific categorie and have articles within.

So like within categorie news:

  • Sports (1 article)
  • Politics (2 article)
  • etc. (12 article)

So sub-categories from news which has no articles doesn't get displayed. This functions can be set all within joomla itselfs.

What I am also looking for is that a user is able to filter all those for a costumized date. Like all articles from 1st August 2013 till now (or sth. like that). The opening date of the article should be the date to filter the list.

  • Have you found the way to do this without using a extension?

Maybe not the exact solution you're looking for, but I recently used an extension called Mod LCA, a module that displays all your articles by year, month, day etc. The free version has a backlink to the author, but the pro version is about $3, IIRC.

There might be other modules for you in the Articles Structured Lists category from JED.

  • I also add to this - as I have used this module quiet a few times for this purpose.

I know its a little bit old and target Joomal 2.7 but with Joomla 3.7 you could do the following (which might help you):

  • Create a new module (Articles - Category)
  • In the Modules tab switch the mode to "Dynamic"
  • In the filtering Options adjust the Options "Date Range Field", "Start Date Range", "To Date" ...
