    how do i bookmark a forum search? in particular, a search for my own posts.

    i am only searching for new posts so google is useless.

    You can click on your name on the front page of the forum and you'll get the option to search for the posts you have made. They'll come up in order (most recent first).

    If all you're interested in doing is searching for your own newest posts, click on your name over there on the left
    <-------
    and in the drop-down menu you get, select "view more posts by granpa"
    This will take you straight to a list of your posts, most recent displayed first.

    You can do this for any user whose posts interest you.

    none of those links gives the same results that the forum search does. forum search lists threads and i can tell immediately whether anybody has added a post to those threads.

    Oh, if you want to know if someone has replied to a thread, you might want to consider enabling subscriptions to threads you post in/create. You can do that through the User CP.
