Before 20.12, I was able to double click on the network folder (network:/) and the knetattach dialog would appear, however since updating to 20.12, I no longer get the knetattach dialog but instead I get a folder page listing all of the shares on my network (not ones I manually had to add to dolphin)
STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Update to 20.12
2. Double click network folder
3. Notice that knetattach doesn't open
The knetattach dialog does not appear
The knetattach dialog should be appearing when I double click on the network folder
(available in About System)
KDE Plasma Version: 5.20.5
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.78.0
Qt Version: 5.12.2
there was always a special item, but it disappeared
This is an intentional change; we removed the "Add network folder" item from the view, and put it Dolphin's toolbar when visiting the "Network" location.
Unfortunately, the change to remove it was made in Frameworks 5.78, while the change to put it in the toolbar was made in Dolphin 21.04, and these two products have different release schedules. As a result, the item is now missing for everyone, and will be until Dolphin 21.04 is released in a few months.
I'm sorry for this regression. We were hoping nobody would notice, but I suppose you did. :) It's time-limited, thankfully.

RIP, thanks for the info! I'll go ahead and downgrade Dolphin and wait until an update rolls out for both packages :D
You're welcome. You would actually want to downgrade KIO (to 5.77), or *upgrade* Dolphin (to 21.04). However note that downgrading KIO will also re-expose you to Bug 430374 which is pretty nasty.
Kubuntu will ship Frameworks 5.78 (or later), but not the 21.04 versions of the applications, so people will certainly notice for the next ten months.
Urth that sucks. I'll send a message to the distro mailing list telling them what they can cherry-pick to improve this situation.
I have Dolphin 20.12.1 and KF5-5.78.0.
Still I can't find this button on the toolbar.
You need Dolphin 21.04 which has not been released yet. So you would need to built it from source or get your distro to patch it in for you. I'm sending distros an email about this right now.

Added patch from commit b1cadeba939155282a9fadf7d7b025d6529c489e (https://invent.kde.org/system/dolphin/-/commit/b1cadeba939155282a9fadf7d7b025d6529c489e) slightly modified so it can be applied to the version 20.12.x.
Somehow works. Thanks to everyone!
You can now run knetattach from krunner or konsole.
It is useful as a solution to the problem here and now
Re-opening, we can't wait for 21.04 and will backport the feature to 20.12.2

the net result is to hide the knetattach launcher in the view, and show
it inline with Dolphin's URL navigator toolbar when viewing the

The backport ensures that even with frameworks << 5.78 only one network
