Is LaTeX supported in Blogs ?

  1. Mar 4, 2009 #1
    Maybe I am just stupid, but I am getting weird stuff back when I try to post latex in my blog.

    Here is a screenshot of my preview after entering some very simple code:

    I vaguely remember someone in the past saying that it doesn't work, but take that with a grain of salt until you hear it from someone with authority.

    LaTeX is enabled in blogs. It just looks like you have some sort of cache problem. It happens with the preview function in the forums ocassionally as well. Try refreshing a couple of times.

    I had similar problems with LaTeX on forums. That was happening after the server move, not sure about the current situation - since problems started I haven't used LaTeX in my posts.

    Well, I just tried it from a different computer and I got the exact same result for different code. That would eliminate the cache theory right?

    It's funny...this does happen occasionally as Borek mentioned. Somehow Latex is linking the code that I just wrote to another code that I wrote about a month ago in another thread.

    So I just read the link that robphy gave me and it appears that Latex is not available in blogs.

    How come? Can we do something about that? :smile:

    Weird, Greg's LaTex blog appears wrong here:

    I see


    Also, LaTex does not appear to work properly in blog comments.
