    What do you call this in English?

    I'd like that someone let me know what are these a few lines which carry information about the poster in the up right corner of every post, called in English?

    That's your profile.
    "On this forum, the posts have a short poster profile on each post."
    "If your profile details are incorrect, please change them."

    Re: What do you call this in English?

    I knew it was my profile. I can edit my profile whenever I want, using the User Control Panel.
    That wasn't what I asked.

    What is this called in English as a part of the screen, page?

    Could this be called "header", a "sidebar"? Probably not.

    Thanks

    Sorry. They are <div> fields in an html <table>. The table doesn't seem to have a name; nor does this field.

    Re: What do you call this in English?

    I think these pages (this software) are not written like html ones but in another IT language.

    Anyway, why there, in the right up corner, is

    Interested in Language. and not

    Interested in the language.

    Thanks

    Re: What do you call this in English?

    Looks like.
    Are you sure that java or some other type of scripts are not present in the lines?

    Anyway, I haven't got the answer on my question.

    Why "Interested in Language." and not

    Interested in the language.

    No, I just copied from the View\Source of Internet Explorer. Otherwise I have no idea what language the site is written in.

    I don't know. I didn't write the profile options.

    NOT A TEACHER.

    Perhaps because "language" refers to any language, not just English, although if this is the case it would probably be better to write "interested in languages."
