More configurations

In most cases, you don't need any more configurations. However, you have lots of choices in the setting page of this plugin if you like.

In the setting page, you can choose or customize the LaTeX image server and the MathJax server, or you can turn off the MathJax if you don't like the slow MathJax.

Install your own LaTeX image service

As I known, MimeTex is the easiest one to build up:

  • download appropriate mimetex executable program from http://www.forkosh.com/mimetex.html. change the file name to mimetex.cgi or mimetex.exe(the postfix depend on your system). Upload it to your /cgi-bin/ diretory, make it executable by your webserver(chmod 777 will do the trick).
  • check url http://yourdomain/cgi-bin/mimtex.cgi?\alpha\geq\beta to make sure it works.
  • change var $server to appropriate one like var $server = "http://yourdomain/cgi-bin/mimetex.cgi?";
  • You need to change the $img_format to corresponded image type your service generated. As in the case of MimeTex, the generated type is gif.
