Total number of pages for a thread is not displayed on a User's Contribution web-page for the same thread

I detected an issue: Total number of pages for a thread is not displayed on a User's Contribution web-page for the same thread.

For example, take a look at 'Improve the performance of a sum' thread on 'Intel C++ compiler' forum. It looks like:

'Improve the performance of a sum (Page: 1, 2)'

Now, take a look at a User's Contribution page, for example: http://software.intel.com/user/353909/track and you will see that the same thread is displayed without '(Page: 1, 2)' like:

'Improve the performance of a sum'

It looks like this forum was released to the public in its beta stage.

Good catch. But the question is do we really want to make the 'user contributions' pages look exactly alike the forum pages?

I'd probably prefer to make them even shorter (remove everything except a topic name and new replies #), since I believe most of the people use their contribution pages as a tickler; I mean these is not a replacement of standard navigation.

Thoughts?

Besides, Sergey, how did you find this profile page (http://software.intel.com/user/353909/track)? I mean literally, how did you find the link to it? ;)

>>the question is do we really want to make the 'user contributions' pages look exactly alike the forum pages?...

I use that page a lot, especially in cases when on some computers, for example I'm in a library on a campus, etc , RSS is Not set. It allows to see all my past activity and I really like that page!

I would change a format of 'Last Updated' column to when exactly it was posted or updated. Take a look at:

Forum topic: User submitted or updated a post and 10 years later 'Last Updated' column on a list of posts will look like...

When I start typing in IE Navigation combobox, for example 'software.i' it shows list of links that match to that string and I found that 'http://software.intel.com/user/nnnnnn/track' is a really good one.

Okay, it sounds like a reasonable request. I'll triage it.

So the only way to find a user profile link @ IDZ is to use browser history? Let me triage that as well.

An IDZ user could see a 6-digit Account ID Number just right after logon is done. By the way, this is a comparison:

New IDZ - http://software.intel.com/user/nnnnnn
Old ISN - http://software.intel.com/en-us/profile/mmmmmm

These numbers are different for the same user and in the 2nd case that web-link doesn't work any longer. There is some problem here: all web-links in Old ISN format could be cached by Internet Search Engines. For example, my Old ISN web-link

http://software.intel.com/en-us/profile/353541

is not displyed however it is cached by:
