hmm, the solution Tobias proposed could work. Still not very practical.
Think, I'll stay with Yarons approach.
Thanks for your answers!

Stefan - it's true that the year dropdown only shows a 10-year range around
the currently-selected year - i.e. 2006 to 2026 - which is annoying.
However, what you can do is select 2006, then open the dropdown again and
the earliest selectable year will now be 1996, and then keep going like
That's also annoying to do, and a lot of users probably won't even realize
that it's possible. What I would strongly recommend is to instead use the
default "date" input type, which is better for historical dates -
"datepicker" is really only intended for picking dates around the present

I'm planning to use the datepicker-field for birth dates. Unfortunately,
list of selectable years reaches only to 2006. So you have to select
the correct day and month and a random year and then change the date in the
input-field again. This is not really straight forward.
Is there a chance to add more years to the "select-field"?
Are you using one of these two, or something else?
Both of those worked for me for selecting older years (the first was
tested via Commons' UploadWizard, the second via the API Sandbox).
More context/detail/links might help. :-)
