Support » Plugin: MathJax-LaTeX » Using LaTeX in Content Blocks in WP

• Hi there,

I am trying to use inline LaTeX in one of my pages in WordPress. The page is structured so that it has content blocks rather than a large text editor at the beginning. Whenever I try to use LaTeX in these content blocks and preview the changes made to the webpage, there is just a blank field in the website – no text or errors appear.

For instance, if I wanted to write an equation:

I do: $E=mc^2$
I am returned: *blank* (when updated)

I have tried various spacing but nothing helps. Perhaps this issue has something to do with using this inside a content block rather than a text editor? Please help!

Hi Steffan, I’m also trying to work out how to use LaTeX in the new Guttenburg editor, did you work this out?

Hi, I was using blogger platform earlier and it was so easy to use mathjax there but as i shifted to WordPress it became very difficult to use latex mathjax plugin properly.

Here is an example where mathjax works

Q 5.     $_{x\,\to \,0}^{\lim }\frac{\int\limits_{2}^{{{\sec }^{2}}x}{f(t)dt}}{{{x}^{2}}-\frac{{{\pi }^{2}}}{16}}$ equals?
(a) $\frac{8}{\pi }f(2)$
(b) $\frac{2}{\pi }f(2)$
(c) $\frac{2}{\pi }f\left( \frac{1}{2} \right)$
(d) 4f(2)

But these are not displayed properly see the questions on 3-D Geometry

On this page you can see various math equations in TEX but mathjax is not working there.
PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME TO SOLVE THIS ISSUE.
