Any of you that deal with eBay have likely noticed that a lot of times now when going to a closed listing you are automagically redirected to a "similar" listing and can't see the closed item.

I just spent a few hours here fixing (hopefully) this for links from here.

The listing title in the url now has to be a dash and nordt=true has to be a query string for it to show the closed item every time.

Clear your history since most browsers cache redirects and see if it works for you.

The link in the post will still have the title for SEO purposes, but it should be stripped and replaced with a dash on the landing page.

Try these, it's ended:

Great news! If you click on an ended item eBay now has at the top left of the note "The listing you're looking for has ended" the clickable option: "View original item". Problem solved I hope.

That's nothing new. It's been that way since the beginning of this change. The problem is that depending on your device, browser, or app, not everyone gets a link back to the original listing. Sometimes you just get redirected to a new item without a link back.

It's an absolutely horrible change by eBay.

I have voiced my opinion (and conveyed those here) in several texts with execs. No guarantees but I figured it couldn't hurt.
