# Problem with LaTeX

Tried to use LateX in my journal i.e. $$a^2 + b^2 = c^2$$ but it didn't work. What I got was a box with the message "LaTeX graphic is being generated. Reload this page in a moment."

I closed it and re-opened it but I didn't get the proper math notation and I retained the same message where the graphic was supposed to be.

Did I do something wrong. How do I make this work?

Did you actually post it or just preview the post?

I know everytime I have tried to preview the post to make sure I have the LateX right it never works. Then as soon as I post it with no changes it works as long as it's not a preview.

Just delete and repost as necessary

I didn't preview and I tried closing, re-opening and closing again and the formula still does not appear, just the box with the statement that 'LaTeX graphic is being generated.' But it doesn't generate it???

As far as I can tell, $$\LaTeX$$ hasn't worked in the Journals.
Here was my attempt https://www.physicsforums.com/journal.php?do=showjournal&j=5 [Broken]

Thanks ROBPHY. I thought that might be the problem.

That is correct, LaTex is not available in journals.
