How can I add a link to the user menu without admin access?

Continuing the discussion from: Add link in user menu

@Johani Is there a way end user (not admin via theme) can add a section to the user menu. For example, I would like to add likes as a user menu similar to your post.

I haven’t tried anything like that before. You might be able to hack something up and load it with a browser extension like this one.

In a nutshell, you’ll want to listen to clicks on the avatar and append your link next to the ones that are there.

That said, I don’t recommend doing that because such extensions usually have performance issues.
