    I see that some of you can do them. Why can't I? :frown:

    I see how to do the integral sign: [inte]

    How do you do superscripts and subscripts? Summation signs? Anything else?

    So far i figured out the Math symbols.
    In the reply page, you will see the smilies on the left.
    Under the smilies you see "Showing 15 of 55"
    Under that there is a link saying "[Get More]".
    Click it and a new window will show.
    This one contains the math symbols.

    But i still have the problem with SUP and SUB !!

    I'm pretty sure I can add sup and sub in a few days.

    ^^^^
    hehe, I don't think so for 'sub'. It appears to be a reserved tag for subsets.

    [ sub ] and [ sup ] are now forum codes you can use!

    ex. 263

    ex. 262

    Oops, I'm a retard.

    sub, when used by itself in brackets, is supposed to be "subset".

    sub followed by /sub, again in brackets, is supposed to give you a subscript.

    Let's see if it works.

    edit: Yay, it does

    edit: Yay, so does 'sup'.
