Plugin that allows formulars to be included in blog texts (as graphics)

WpMathPublish is a plugin that offers wordpress authors the funtion to convert mathematical equations into graphics being displayed in pages and blogentries. To do so, it uses the PhpMathPublisher-Libary, which has been modifies to work with wordpress.

Using it is just as simple as that: Mathematical equations that are meant to be shown as such have to be put in [math]-tags using your favorite wordpress-editor ([math]equation[/math]). The plugin automatically converts the equations into graphics, which will be saved in your wordpress installtion in order to be generated only once. A small overview over its functions is integrated in the admin menu as well

Attention: Previous versions of this plugin used [m]-tags instead of the [math]-tags. These still are supported, but i thought it was much nicer to have [math]-tags

Currently it supports the following features:

  • Basic function: Convert equations into graphics
  • Font and background color can be chosen by you in the admin panel (alpha-transparency included, but if you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer you will need version 7 or greater to display the images correctly)
  • Font size default value can be set, but also changed for every single image if necessary
  • If you just want to output a formula there is a "noparse" attribute that will output the pure text nicely formatted
  • Saves the images on the webspace, which saves processor time
  • Clear image cache and let all images be regenerated by admin panel
  • Integration in TinyMCE editor


To configure the plugin there is an easy to use admin panel page (since v0.3.1). Here you can change the the color by using a javascript color picker, and the transparency value for the graphic Furthermore you can choose a default font-size used for the images


There are probably quite a lot people who do not know the PhpMathPublisher commands, so here you go.
