I've asked this before, but the website has changed. How do you view previously posted threads, not posts? Seems unnecessarily difficult to find...

Just do a search with a specified date as the only parameter. I don't suggest doing it for more than a few days back though 'cause you'll just get too many threads to bother looking at

I would suggest to copy the link to any post you make. I have a folder with these links. Worse, do a site search ( upper right )with a word for your topic and/or authored by yourself.

Or, by topic and author:

I assume that fear of injection-like search strings restrict the ability to search.

WWGD, is there no way to do it like a few months ago, where I can select view posts or view threads?

Sorry Josh, I am not really sure. I think if you go to the lounge section of this site I think they have a subsection for admin-type questions of this sort. I would check further but I am in my phone , which makes any checking more difficult.

How do you view previously posted threads,
Click "Search" at the top right of the page. (This is on a desktop computer.)
Click the "Advanced Search" button.
Choose the "Search Threads" tab.
In the "Posted By" box, enter your username.
At the bottom of the page, just above the "Search" button, tick the box labeled "Display results as threads".
Click the "Search" button.
