XF 2.2 URL Question for Long Time Users

I've got a quick question for long time users. For those who have used XenForo forum software since at least 2012. I'm curious about the /posts/ directory. I've read through a few threads here on the forum where this directory has been discussed and I can't seem to piece together what's being referred to. People claim that URLs that include /posts/ in them are included on the homepage. This thread that dates back to 2013 is a good example:


The original thread creator says that these URLs 301 redirect to the most recent posts and are linked to from the homepage (or forum page).

My question is, have these URLs:

https://mysite.com/posts/1234/

changed to:

https://mysite.com/threads/thread-name.1234/post-1234

through the years? Has XenForo done away with the 301 redirect URLs with /posts/ in them and have they changed them to the newer version URLs that I now see on my own forum list page?

Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!

/posts/ is still used but I’m not certain of all the locations. One that I could find right off the bat was in alerts when someone reacts to your post.

Thank you for this. Yes, I see that /posts/ is used on the thread page if someone reacts to a post as well in the alert email that's sent to people when someone responds to their posts.
