    Hello anand,

    Please excuse us for the delay of our response. Here is what you need to do to achieve the requested functionality:

    Open the file ~/Sitefinity/ControlTemplates/Forums/SingleForum.ascx .
    Add the highlighted code as shown in the following code:
    <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="<%$Resources:LastPost %>" HeaderStyle-CssClass="sf_forumAuthor"
        <ItemStyle CssClass="sf_forumAuthor" /> 
            <asp:LinkButton ID="goToPost" runat="server"><sfWeb:DateTimeLiteral ID="lastPostDate" runat="server" DateFormatString="dd MMM yyyy, hh:mm"></sfWeb:DateTimeLiteral></asp:LinkButton> 
            By&nbsp;  <%#Eval("Owner")%> 
            <prof:ManageProfile ID="lastPostAuthor" runat="server"
                    <asp:Label ID="FirstName" runat="Server"></asp:Label>&nbsp; 
                    <asp:Label ID="LastName" runat="Server"></asp:Label>
