<title>CUNY Academic Commons - Support #13091: problem with latex (math equations)https://redmine.gc.cuny.edu/issues/13091?journal_id=531872020-07-27T15:24:15ZMarilyn WeberMweber@gc.cuny.edu
<ul></ul><p>I asked him if he has any suggestions. He replied:</p>
<p>Thanks for the speedy reply!</p>
<p>Most mathematicians and scientists who work with latex</p>
<p>would like a plugin that allows us to just</p>
<p>copy and paste latex from a latex document</p>
<p>(that we've created on our desktop)</p>
<p>into a wordpress page. I.e., that allows us to keep the $ $ equation indicators, rather than use the [latex] [/latex] short code.</p>
<p>Here are a few plugins that seem to do allow that, based on their descriptions. I think they are free and fairly current. I don't have experience with them.</p>
<p>Latex2HTML (free and current)</p>
<p><a class="external" href="https://wordpress.org/plugins/latex2html/">https://wordpress.org/plugins/latex2html/</a></p>
<p>Simple-mathjax</p>
<p><a class="external" href="https://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-mathjax/">https://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-mathjax/</a></p>
<p>WPQuickLatex</p>
<p><a class="external" href="https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-quicklatex/">https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-quicklatex/</a></p>
<p>The wordpress page for latex plugins is:</p>
<p><a class="external" href="https://wordpress.org/plugins/tags/latex/">https://wordpress.org/plugins/tags/latex/</a></p>
<p>Perhaps one of the problem with WP Latex (which is what the commons currently uses) is that it hasn't been up dated for over six years.</p> CUNY Academic Commons - Support #13091: problem with latex (math equations)https://redmine.gc.cuny.edu/issues/13091?journal_id=532002020-07-27T18:01:03ZBoone Gorgesboone@gorg.es
<ul><li><strong>Status</strong> changed from <i>New</i> to <i>Staged for Production Release</i></li><li><strong>Target version</strong> set to <i>1.17.0</i></li></ul><p>First, I'll note that Jetpack has LaTeX support. It doesn't have the requested syntax, but it might work better than what we've got. <a class="external" href="https://jetpack.com/support/beautiful-math-with-latex/">https://jetpack.com/support/beautiful-math-with-latex/</a></p>
<p>Of the listed plugins, I like the way that simple-mathjax looks. I'm going to sneak it in for tomorrow's release. The reporter should have access to it by around noon EDT. If there are problems, we can reopen this ticket to discusse</p> CUNY Academic Commons - Support #13091: problem with latex (math equations)https://redmine.gc.cuny.edu/issues/13091?journal_id=532542020-07-28T15:09:56ZBoone Gorgesboone@gorg.es
