Hello all. Brief disclaimer, I'm not exactly a luddite but I'm no programming wiz either so I can't talk about these issues on a very technical level. I can however follow directions, so if I have to do something on my end, I would be able to with some guidance.

Basically the problem I'm experiencing is that I don't see the LaTex equations that people put up. I just see the brackets and slashes (the code I'm guessing).

I have no idea if the problem can be resolved on PF's end or if I have to do something on my end.

Either way, some help would be appreciated. I don't know LaTex well enough to see the code and know what the output would be, thus rendering most threads impossible to read.

Thanks for any help you can give. I hope there is a solution as the PF app has become my main method of accessing the forum.

PS I'm on an iPhone 5, and AFAIK all updated as far as the iOS goes.

At this time LaTeX is not supported on the app. The mobile browser skin does however.

Hi Greg, I didn't realize this issue was discussed in the sticky regarding the PF app already (I just now read it).

Sorry about that.

Ill be rating/reviewing in the next few days, its still the most useful app I've downloaded in the last six months.
