    A lot of threads I've been looking at doesn't display the Latex code. It just says: Latex code: blahblahblah. All underlined. What's wrong?

    I no longer see the announcement but I can't post Latex code and have it look correct.

    I've even tried to cut and paste older Latex lines that look fine but the new "preview" do not look correct.

    As far as you know - is Latex working now? is the problem on me?

    Is Latex still down? I can't seem to produce right Latex despite I thought what I typed was compliant to Latex code.

    Yes, unfortunately, LaTeX is still down. We are aware of the problem and hopefully chroot will be able to resolve it soon.

    lol @ people keeping asking if LaTeX is still down.

    If you type something correct between tex-tags and it doesn't show, it's still down. If it does show, it's up again :)

    need to re-type?

    Hi snoopies622! :smile:

    I'm fairly sure you'll need to re-type it …

    I think the server looks for a thingy created at the time of posting, and of course it won't be able to find one. :frown:

    Alternatively, edit now, using extra symbols and the X2 and X2 tags. :wink:

    I'm sorry; I'm not sure what this means. Not using LaTeX? Can one make a decent looking fraction without it?

    Re: need to re-type?

    Decent enough, yes. I just go for plain and simple, like: 1/2
    But what tiny tim means is: 1/2

    Well, I never thought of it until I read your post here. :rofl: We'll call it a collaborative effort, then! :biggrin:

    Thanks all, but I think I'll just wait for the LaTeX to return. I hope the problem is fixed soon.

    [itex]\LaTeX[/itex] is back up. I'm still not a fan of the font, though, so I'm going to try tweaking a few more things.
