Adding link to UserInfo page in header menu

How can I add the link:

as MyStats in the header menu. I know how to add the html code in the template/main_header but how do I get the user=1 to change with whatever the users id is signed in? So if user 78 signs in the link <a href="">MyStats</a> will appear in the header menu. I hope I was clear enough.

Try using {$user_id} in your template, for example:

<a href="{$user_id}">MyStats</a>

Works great, thanks man, I didn't know the variable $user_id was declared yet. If your not logged in and click it, it says User does not exist!!! because the user_id == 0 which is find.

Paste this in bb_plugins.php:

/* Link to UserInfo page */

if($user_id>0) $myStatsLnk="<a href=\"{$indexphp}action=userinfo&amp;user={$user_id}\">MyStats</a> {$l_sepr} ";

/* --Link to UserInfo page */

Then paste in templates/main_header.html:
