Codecogs Latex Equation Editor


A Tiny MCE plugin which makes writing latex equation easy and WYSIWYG(what you see is what you get). It converts latex code into image which shows real beautiful latex equations on your post.

It adds an “fx” botton on the wordpress TinyMCE editor, on clicks it the codecogs latex equation editor pops up, where you can edit latex, then click the copy button to copy the equation image back in TinyMCE textarea.

You can also use this editor to only input latex code and let plugins like quicklatex, mathjax or Latex for WordPess to convert it to equation image, you’d better change line 90 in editor_plugin.js
tinyMCE.activeEditor.execCommand(‘mceInsertContent’, false, ”);
tinyMCE.activeEditor.execCommand(‘mceInsertContent’, false, ‘\[‘+latex+’\]’);
inorder to only copy LaTex code to TinyMCE textarea when click the copy button.

I just followed the tutorial written by Greg Winiarski( and make codecogs Tiny MCE plugin( into a wordpress plugin. Thanks the great guys. If you can make the plugin better to use please tell me in

Arbitrary section

You may provide arbitrary sections, in the same format as the ones above. This may be of use for extremely complicated

“installation.” Arbitrary sections will be shown below the built-in sections outlined above.

Titles are optional, naturally.

Markdown uses email style notation for blockquotes and I’ve been told:

Asterisks for emphasis. Double it up for strong.
