LQ search results format

Recently, I am getting my LQ search results in a different format. Some of the text of each thread is displayed in the initial search results. I don't know whether LQ changed the format or whether I accidentally set it this way, but I like the old format better. Is there an option to revert?

Thank you. I did not find any section labeled "Advanced" on the search page, but I eventually found "show results as threads."
