How to make a plugin that modifies a page controlled by another plugin?

For example, there is a likes plugin that among other things allows you to like forum posts. This inserts a "Like" button bellow each forum post.... What I don't understand, is how does the likes plugin manage to insert html into the forum page w/o actually modifying the separate forum plugin? Thanks, -Eric

    I should mention, that I'd like to do this w/o modifying theme files... I'd like to be able to write plugins that work regardless of the users selected theme, and without them needing to edit the theme themselves.
