Kunena 6.0.8 Released (17 Jan 2023)
The Kunena team has announce the arrival of Kunena 6.0.8 [K 6.0.8] which is now available for download as a native Joomla extension for J! 4.2.x. This version addresses most of the issues that were discovered in K 6.0 and issues discovered during the development stages of K 6.0.
Question [Resolved] How to add a link at the top of every Forum page?
The easiest solution would be to write a custom module and display it in a module position on your Joomla template. That's what I would do. The JED lists several extensions that allow you to build custom modules where you can add whatever HTML you like.
The kunena_announcement" module position would of been perfect, however this module doesn't seem to work right. Instead of left align or center, it places the code/link at the very far right column. Because the right column in the kunena_announcement area is so thin, it makes the module very tall as the links don't fit horizontally in this thin area. I wonder why it was decided to put it in the far right column instead of center where there is much more room to add a link, text, or any custom code.
I don't think that a lot has changed but that's something you can, no doubt verify youself.

The kunena_announcement module position doesn't seem to work correctly with the default Kunena 1.7 template. It places the code vertically at the far right instead of center.
I though about adding links to the Category headers, but doesn't support code there or anchor text links. I'll just put the menu links after message 1 for right now as my closest fix. I would like to put these links above message 1 however, but I don't think this is possible with the current module positions.
... which is exactly the way it's supposed to work, just like you see it here at this site! Saying that it doesn't seem to work "correctly" is untrue. However, if you don't like the way it behaves then you can change the behaviour by adding your own custom CSS rules to your template.

I'm sorry but that is, also, untrue. You can use BBcode in category headers (again, see the Index page on this site which shows you examples of links embedded in category headers! See Sections, Categories, sub-Categories (Part 1) in the Wiki where this fact (that you can use BBcode in category headers/descriptions) is mentioned.

I think we have properly answered the original question, "How [do you] add a link at the top of every forum page?". The answer is that you write a custom module and display it in a module position - one that is located at the top of a page - of the template you're you've assigned to your [forum] menu items. We'll leave it to you to figure out the fine details of which module position of your template (or some template that you might like to build yourself) you want to use.
