Test to see if Latex is Working

    **g_{ij} = **
    **g^{ij} = **
    **\Gamma_{ij}^{k} = **
    <tex>R^{i}_{jkl} = </tex>
    <tex>R_{ij} = </tex>
    <tex>R = </tex>
    <tex>T_{ij} = </tex>

    ##\LaTeX3e##

    ##g_{ij} = \\
    g^{ij} = \\
    \Gamma_{ij}^{k} =##
    [tex]R^{i}_{jkl} = [/tex]
    $$R_{ij} = $$
    [tex]R = \\
    T_{ij} = [/tex]

    Subscripts and superscripts seem to be working yep. even ##_\mu \xi ^\nu## stuff

    use the quote button under this post to see how I did that ;)

    You are using the wrong symbols. Use two # symbols to start and end an inline equation, two $ symbols to start and end a display mode equation.

    Here are your expressions properly written as as inline expressions (double #): ##g_{ij} = ## ##g^{ij} = ## ##\Gamma_{ij}^{k} = ##

    And here as display mode (double $):
    $$g_{ij} = $$ $$g^{ij} = $$ $$\Gamma_{ij}^{k} = $$

    Once again, wrong syntax. Use square brackets rather than angle brackets.

    Your expressions with square brackets:
    [tex]R^{i}_{jkl} = [/tex]
    [tex]R_{ij} = [/tex]
    [tex]R = [/tex]
    [tex]T_{ij} = [/tex]

    An easy way to see if you have written the correct code is using the preview post button in Go Advanced posting screen.
    EDIT: And if what you are using is the app then you will need to switch to a browser to see the codes as intended.

    Are you referring to viewing LaTeX in preview mode, or in actual posts? (I've never used the app.)

    In the app the ##\LaTeX## just doesn't work. You just get the corresponding TeX code ie. ## \LaTeX# #
    But this is in the previous version of the android app, haven't got around to updating it yet.
