Hello & Very Essential Proposition

Hello everybody,

I just found this web forum and I am very glad it exists.

My opinion is that PF have a lot of potencial, but still there is a lot of things to be done.

I am Super Moderator on my local web forum, concrete I moderate Math and Physics, and student of electrical engineering.

So, my first well-meaning rebuke is about fact that absolutely nothing have been done about displaying mathematical formulas. This is Psysics forums, right ? Does anybody here know something about (La)TeX ?

Ok c^2 = a^2 + b^2 can be shown like this, but try for example with this:

(img tags dont working ?)

Have problems ? :-)

Ok, there is very easy way to automatically produce mathematical formulas using tex tags for example.

If PF is running on its own server then Administrator (by the way who is that ?) simple need to install TEX2IM:

Ofcourse if server is UNIX. After that, only have to implement tex2im with phorum, very easy !!!

Unfortunately, currently I dont have free time to write tutorials about math and electric, when time permits I will do that.

What do you think about proposition ?

I saw that you are Administrator. What do you have to tell about it ?

Nobody interested to improve this forum ???

The LaTex module looks interesting. I'll see if our host will load it up. In the meantime you can use this guide to create math symbols:

Also the img tags here to work.

Careful, tho! Many people have 'LaTex' allergies!:wink: (Sorry. I just couldn't resist the pun. OK. 2/3 of a pun - P [and] U )

edit: I know. I should probably see a therapist.
