LaTeX now in blogs

  1. Jun 15, 2008 #1
    LaTeX is now in the blogs. However not in comments, but in entries.

    I want to again remind everyone who had a blog in the old system that you can recover those entries by going here:

    Yay! Now we don't have to read any more posts in feedback asking why LaTex isn't working in blogs. :biggrin: I know a LOT of people are going to enjoy that feature.

    From my test, it's not quite correct.

    Preview doesn't work.

    After today's first attempt, it looked like posting LaTeX worked.
    But when I replied to it with new LaTeX,
    the newly-rendered image replaced the originally-rendered image.

    Rob I just made two blog posts and it seems to work fine.

    When I visited your blog (at 11:41am EST) and when I visit my blog, there is the
    "Click to see the LaTeX code for this image"
    in place of each rendered-image.

    For "preview" mode yes we are aware, but if you go into the blog entry they should appear

    Ok. I see now. Thanks.
    I'll try a couple more things out.

    If you visit your most recent blog entry, does it still look right?
    It seems that the comment I made alters the appearance [the rendered-image] of your post.

    ok the overwriting is fixed, but the broken images in blog list can't be fixed unfortunately without file modification. There will be a new blog update soon that will hopefully allow us to get that working.

    Great to see Latex is now included in blogs. One thing I've noticed is the limit for images seems to apply to Latex also which limits the number of latex images to 4 per blog. Is this permanent or something that will change in the near future.

    I'll look into this setting and bump it up.
