LaTeX and equation editing

  • nimon


    Since the most recent question about LaTeX is about 5 years old, I think it is worth asking again if there is any improved support for this. The de facto LaTeX plug-in for WordPress has got to be QuickLaTeX, it blows the others out of the water, and QuickLaTeX relies upon parsing the text somebody writes, and rendering anything parenthesised by dollar signs $…$ as math. It has an option to apply to the entire site, which is ideal for those building websites involving lots of math.

    Now, I am currently involved in designing a learning management system, and what I want is for all text produced by anyuser to be QuickLaTeXable. At the moment, LaTeX renders in many places but not all. In particular, in messages between users in the BuddyPress system it displays raw, as $\int_{a}^{b}f(x)\,dx$ for example. I haven’t tested for every possible context, and you may have a better idea of where/why equations work and don’t work.

    Is there any hope of BuddyPress/bbPress working together with QuickLaTeX to produce a solution to the basic problem of having mathematical conversations on a WordPress site?
