This plugin enables mathjax (http://www.mathjax.org) functionality for WordPress (http://www.wordpress.org).

Great that it's only injected on pages that use it

Up to now I've been using the Simple Mathjax plugin, which also works well, but is not able to inject the mathjax dependency selectively.

On my sites I have math only on a very few pages, and MathJax-LaTeX enables me to enable mathjax only on those pages by just adding the [mathjax] shortcode somewhere.

Importantly, remember to disable Jetpack Beautiful Math, else it can interfere with MathJax-LaTeX. (at the time of writing, Jetpack is still turning math into bitmaps, which is not nearly as beautiful as MathJax on capable browsers).

See https://vxlabs.com/2014/06/16/level-sets-the-practical-10-minute-introduction/ for an example.

Great Plugin

Using the MathJax-LaTeX plugin makes math real simple and beautiful on my site. There may be some tiny "bugs" from time to time, but nothing I could not fix by looking at the docs.mathjax.org.

Using math on your blog never was simpler!

great plugin if bugs gets fixed

While it had no problem installing it, the transitions from Wp-Latex to Mathjax-Latex wasn't as smooth as I hoped for. The plugin seems to have two bugs which make a lot of the formulas on our blog not render. It is a show stopper for us, therefore only 2 stars.
