I can't see latex equations

  1. Dec 16, 2011 #1
    Hi. As I currenhaven't got the internet, I occasionaly download pages from cafe and read at ho9me. But I cant see the equations, only the code itself. This has been hapening for some time even with the latest IE. What am I missing?

    LaTeX is rendered by a code that is loaded separately from the page code, could be it doesn't work when you are not connected. Perhaps Mathjax can be configured to work off line?

    No because every page links to the CDN.

    What is CDN?..Anyways, I hoped someone had the same problem and that there was some addon or tex that I'm missing.
    Interestingly, the code from other sites that use latex works fine. (the ones that generate the pngs). And I also remember that I used to download from PF before and it usually (if not always) worked.
    Thanks

    I don't know if this applies to your situation, but sometimes this happens to me and I just refresh the page.

    Some time ago we changed the way LaTeX is treated - before each LaTeX equation was rendered as an image and stored on the server (which meant we had literally millions of the pictures that were occupying server space), now LaTeX is rendered on the client side using http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mathjax. Mathjax scripts are downloaded by your computer from CDN - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Content_delivery_network

    What exactly do you mean when you say you download the pages? If you're loading the pages in a browser at the cafe, the equations should render at that time.
