# LaTeX support in community blog

Not sure if this should be separate from the other blog-related threads. I started fooling around with the new blog and drafting a post. However, I can't seem to get LaTeX to work... I am not an expert on WordPress, but I understand that there are LaTeX packages, like these two:

http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/latex/

http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-latex/

Is it possible to load one for the community blog (that way we can add math)? Or am I missing some obvious feature that is already present?

Bugs, feature requests, etc regarding the community blog are fine here. (:

We already had the Mathjax Latex plugin installed on the blog network, I just needed to enable it on the cstheory blog.

The plugin page talks about the syntax, so if you're having issues using it, make sure you check that out.

Great, thank you. – Aaron Sterling Jul 16 '11 at 19:19
Thanks Rebecca! – Joe Fitzsimons Jul 17 '11 at 15:42

Note that there is Mathjax Latex which would enable the blog to use the same engine as Stackexchange does.

You're quite right, Artem. I can't get math to function either.

@Rebecca Chernoff: Please let us know when this is resolved, so we can get started.

LaTeX does not seem to work in comments (see here); or do we have to use $$...$$?

Use  for inline tex. – Joe Fitzsimons Sep 23 '11 at 18:33
Ah, thank you. Maybe someone can edit my comment on the latest post, thanks! :> – Raphael Sep 23 '11 at 21:50
