    If you click your name on the left hand side of your post in this topic (thread), you'll see a dropdown menu.
    Select "Find member's posts" to see all your old posts (or select "Find member's topics" to see the threads that you started).

    with the correct post number at the end. Press Enter to go to the post.

    That's a link to the old Lounge which is no longer valid. If the post is one of your own, you can find it as described above, OR you can use the new Lounge search feature which is fast. All you need is a phrase or word(s) from the post or its subject.

    In this case, I took the post number from the old Lounge link and used the PostLink to get: Post 443884. Is that the one?

    When you compose a post or reply, there's a Quick Access list on the left. Insert: Post Link is one of the clickable items in this list.
