Creating a language box

To share which languages you know copy the code below to your user page. The number next to the language symbol indicates your level of proficiency.


You can find the list of available languages and their symbols here.

Creating a personal infobox

To create an infobox copy the code below to your profile page and fill it in with personal information of your choice. Any field left empty will not be visible on your user profile page. Remember to change the name of your profile image file. (In this example: NameOfYourPicture.jpg) At this point do not worry about uploading the picture, you will do it later. After you finish editing your user page you can click on the "show preview" button to see the results.

If the infobox is not displayed correctly, it will be after you upload your picture. Click on the "save page" button. This will take you to your new user page where you can upload your picture by clicking on the link in red.
