How do I display archived caches on LiveMap?

Over the last few days, I discovered that I can use the live map to find locations or archived geocaches to help me in planning an event for our local group.  I went to use the feature today, and found that the option I had up until yesterday to "include archived caches" is no longer visible and I can't see them unless I attempt to use map compare, which bogs my system and browser down when I try to zoom in.

A workaround might be to add a  center/radius filter on map compare to only get caches from the exact area you are interested in instead of the whole county.

If you are a paying member you can create a custom filter to only show archived caches if they are the only one you are interested in
Can I use my own filter in an active map? How?
You can use the on map compare (and likly on other stats) and create them in the menu with your own name. It is a paying member function

I think that is not possible, since archived caches aren't "live"

We had that option for 1-2 days, to view archived geocaches on the Live map. However Geocaching HQ forced us to remove it.
