[resolved] Error message: formula does not parse after inserting formula from Math Type (6 posts)

    Hello,

    I installed JetPack in order to use the 'beatifull math' functionality.
    I made a couple of posts. In each post i insert text as well as math types from Math Type software. I save each post and everything seen ok. After few time i see in the bottom of the text the message 'formula does not parse'.

    So, what is going wrong with the copoy-paste mechanism from Math Type to WordPress?

    Thank you

    Howdy,

    Can you send me an example of what you're copy/pasting that isn't parsing as expected?

    For reference, instructions on how LaTeX works with Jetpack can be found at http://jetpack.me/support/beautiful-math-with-latex/

    Cheers!

    Hi Brandon,

    The issue that i had is that, if the latex code is multiline seems that is being broken. In such a case you can see the message 'formula does not parse'. See that example: http://e-learning-ggeorgiou.gr/wordpresstest/post-1/ in which the last latex code is pretty big and mathematicians enter this kind of formulas.

    The last big formula i entered is that:
    -----------------------
    $latex \displaystyle \frac{n!*\sqrt{{{\frac{x-\mu }{\sigma }}^{2}}+15-\frac{\sqrt{{{b}^{2}}-4ac}}{\delta x}-{{\frac{-b\pm \sqrt{{{b}^{2}}-4ac}}{\frac{n!}{r!\left( n-r \right)!}}}^{2}}}}{r!\left( \underset{\delta x\to 0}{\mathop{\lim }}\,-r \right)!+\left( \begin{matrix}
    {{a}_{11}} & {{a}_{12}} & {{a}_{13}} \\
    {{a}_{21}} & {{a}_{22}} & {{a}_{23}} \\
    {{a}_{31}} & {{a}_{32}} & {{a}_{33}} \\
    \end{matrix} \right)}$
    -------------------------

    Interesting. I wasn't able to duplicate that ( http://kraftbj.wpsandbox.me/2014/05/latex-test/ ).

    Are you using the Visual Editor or the Text Editor when entering in the formula? If you're using the visual editor, could you try the text editor?

    Thanks!

    Hi Brandon,

    I Math Type application together with MS Word. I found a solution at http://www.dessci.com/en/support/MathType/works_with.asp#!target=wordpress.
    Just select 'Google Docs' and math types are inserted as an image.
    Note that I use TinyMCE Advanced instead of Jetpack.

    My guess would be an issue with using the VIsual Editor when pasting in the Latex formulas. I'm glad you found a workaround.

    Cheers.
