Remove Support Thread pagination from top of the page.

Description

When viewing a plugin's support threads, we show the pagination control on the top of the page above the table. This is visually distracting and I don't understand what use case this is catering to.

We should be focusing on providing the most relevant information in front of the user, the threads in the table. This undermines that goal by giving them a shortcut to go somewhere else.

I agree, CSS appears to be the only way.

I've no need for the top nav element in plugin support, however I use the same a lot in my own profile for accessing older topics I've participated in. It seems these topic lists are all based on the same template so if it goes away in plugin support it'd likely also go away elsewhere? We could simply hide the element with CSS so it doesn't clutter up areas where it's not desired while still remaining in other areas where it's useful. All without needing to change the underlying template.

Okay, thanks for that context. I'll look to filter it out of plugin/theme forums as the ideal first step.

I've added a patch that hides the top pagination using CSS for all the forums. It doesn't hide it for any tables within the profile as that uses a different CSS structure. I'll do more testing before merging.
