This is in continuation to the message on the Solid Edge forum:
I would like to bring to your kind attention the following issues that are still seen at the time of writing off this post:
1. Number of views for a blog post - earlier this was displayed alongside the title, now it is gone.
Kindly restore this feature.
2. Easily getting a direct link to a particular message in a discussion; for example, the direct link as seen in  above.
Currently I use the option 'Email to friend' and have to wait for the email.
Kindly provide a direct way to do this so users can be directly pointed to messages faster.
3. The notification icon that appears on the profile photo as a red circle with the number of unread messages is not being displayed.
If I click my username in the top-right corner, the pull-down list does show there are unread messages and notifications.
This is not severe as the 'attachments not available' but could be misleading for a user who has just logged in.
Solved! Go to Solution.
2. You can get a direct link to a message by using the Highlight feature. Click on the "..." message on a single message, and select Highlight to get a direct URL to that message.
3. Noted, in progress.
#3 appears to be solved since the notification for unread posts is displayed on top of the avatar icon.
However the blog article count is needed on priority since I post new articles every week and want to know the number of visits/views.
Thanks again for looking into this.
