Can't preview LaTeX

    When I preview my posts, none of the math shows up. Instead I get a message that says "LaTex graphic is being generated. Reload this page in a moment." But reloading doesn't help at all. Is everyone having this problem or just me? Is there something I can do about it?

    This is a problem for everyone. Hopefully, the vB upgrade tomorrow will fix it.

    No latex preview with upgrade. I'm almost against warren implementing it. We already have gigs of latex images on the server. Use this for testing

    Thanks for the fast answers. That testing tool isn't very useful at all. It doesn't understand fractions for example. Maybe I'm just using it wrong. I'm not sure. Anyway, I really hope you will (re)implement a LaTeX preview feature. I probably won't be able to post until you do. Don't forget that disk space is really cheap these days. :smile:

    Are the preview images "temporary files", which could be deleted when the post is submitted?
