Discourse Extra Header Links

This plugin is for adding extra links to the Discourse header's header-after-home-logo plugin outlet.


Follow the Install a Plugin howto, using git clone https://github.com/scossar/discourse-header-links as the plugin command.

Once you've installed it, review the settings under plugins in the admin section of your forum.


To add links to the header, visit the plugin's settings page. Links can be added to the 'add header links' input box.

It is easiest to format your links in a text editor and then copy and paste them into the input.

Style the links

The header links ul has the class .extra-header-links, the individual links have the class .header-link. Style them in the Discourse custom html/css area.

Media queries

On narrow screens, adding extra links to the header will cause problems. You will probably need to put the extra links inside of a media query. Here is an example of how to do that:

.extra-header-links {
    display: none;
    @media (min-width: 700px) {
        display: inline-block;
