How do I add a link in the member drop down box?

I started to ask this in an add-on and realized this is probably a better question to ask in general support.

Here is the image of where I want to add a link. How do I add a link to that area?

You need the template
navigation_visitor_tab

Look for this block

Code:
<ul class="col2 blockLinksList">
<xen:hook name="navigation_visitor_tab_links2">
 
<li><a href="{xen:link watched/threads}">{xen:phrase watched_threads}</a></li>
 
<xen:if is="{$xenCache.userUpgradeCount}"><li><a href="{xen:link account/upgrades}">{xen:phrase account_upgrades}</a></li></xen:if>
</xen:hook>
</ul>
The RED line is an example of the pattern of the links you see in that column.
You can also use straight html like

<li><a href="http://www.mysite.com/page.htm">NAME OF LINK</a></li>

Just don't change the start and end in bold.
If you change the existing links - comment them out and put your replacement below the old version. Don't delete so you can get the old code back if you need it.
