Support » Plugin: WP-KaTeX » \fcolorbox is not working as a plugin

  • It looks like \fcolorbox{}{} is not working with the plug-in.

    For example, \fcolorbox{red}{aqua}{A} renders fine on the site. However, [latex] \fcolorbox{red}{aqua}{A} [/latex] gives me an error on WordPress.

    \fcolorbox support was added in version 1.9.0. Please make sure you’re using the latest version of the plugin.

    Thank you for the prompt response. Your plug-in is great. Really brings the true beauty of LaTeX to HTML. I’ll continue to use it and post any issues I see.

    Actually, this is still not working.

    I have version 1.9.1 of the plug-in installed.

    This is the code I have on my page:
    [latex] \fcolorbox{red}{aqua}{A} [/latex]

    But I still get a “Formula does not parse” error.

    I have screenshots of this if you need them.

    Hmm, that’s strange. Do you have a page on your site where I can see the error?

    Also, what theme/plugins do you have installed?

    Hi Andrew:

    Here is the page:

    If you see this page, all the other formulas are rendering fine.

    As for other themes/plugin, I don’t believe I have anything installed that would interfere with this. This same fcolorbox code renders fine on the site.

    It looks like you have Jetpack’s LaTeX plugin enabled. You can disable the “Beautiful Math” feature in the Jetpack settings, which will then allow KaTeX to render the equations instead.

    thank you — that worked. But it looks like a few other things stopped working (such as \setlength{\jot}{10pt} , which I use in multi-line equations to have more spacing between the lines).

    Instead, I can use \\[1em] at the line break to put that space in.

    Just wanted to let you know!

    thanks again.

    p.s. — I really love what you have done here. I have a lot of math notes I’d like to publish and am thinking about an automated way to translate this to a KaTeX friendly format. Do you have a contact email or a preferred way to speak offline? 🙂
