### Latex formula support ?

Posted: Wed Jul 18, 2012 1:16 pm
Hi,

It will be fine if the forum can support latex formula ?!

I'm sure that you agree... but just hope that you will find some time to add it ### Re: Latex formula support ?

Any news ?

Is there someone able to improve the forum please, because it is hard to add complex formula with latex ?

As a suggestion MathJax support could be added.

For a basic configuration all that needs to be done is to add:

Code: Select all

<script type="text/javascript"
src="http://cdn.mathjax.org/mathjax/latest/MathJax.js?config=TeX-AMS-MML_HTMLorMML">
</script>
Somewhere in the <head> section of overall_header.html (Editable by going to the Administration Control Panel (ACP) >> Styles >> Templates >> Edit prosilver >> Select "overall_header.html").

Then for example typing:

Code: Select all

We can derive de Moivre's formula using Euler's formula:
$\left( \cos{\theta} + i \sin{\theta} \right)^n = \left( e^{i\theta} \right)^n = e^{i (n \theta)} = \cos{(n \theta)} + i \sin{(n \theta)}$
Would yield (screenshot from my phpBB forum): ^ Probably should've chosen the rendering equation instead .

There are MathJax phpBB mods too (for example here), however just adding the script to the header seems to be good enough for most things.

Cheers, Arite.

Arite, thanks for the detailed instructions!

Test:

$\left( \cos{\theta} + i \sin{\theta} \right)^n = \left( e^{i\theta} \right)^n = e^{i (n \theta)} = \cos{(n \theta)} + i \sin{(n \theta)}$

EDIT: Seems to work. Will this do for now?

I agree! It wasn't something I was really dying for, but I really appreciate it now that it's available.

Brilliant .

A Global annoucement saying e.g. "MathJax LaTeX formula support added" with a couple of usage examples could be helpful for new users.

You can use the following tool to easily create your formula :

Is there some anti-aliasing option ? The formula looks pixelated..

BTW:Take a look at the previous link to compare.

Thanks
