    It is technically a search. There is a 'since last visit" radio button in the advanced search page. Setup and save a query using that criteria. Set that search string URL as your bookmark. That's how it worked in the last version, also. Right now it doesn't work though as search is setup to limit returned results by default. Error message e.g. "Search MIGHT RETURN too many results, blah blah." Would be nice if it checked the result set before raising the error. Meh, it's not a big deal. Something else for poor Steve to put on this list, maybe. Hopefully not on his birthday!!

    Here's a search string URL that works OK for me. Not exactly since last visit, but gets you close.

    Here's a since last visit of discussions and polls, but I don't think it's doing exactly what the criteria says, as it returns 5000 posts for me, and I just visited. You get the idea, anyway. That's how it is typically done, even when it's a direct link style button built into the vBulletin itself, iirc.
