It seems a big problem, I can't even see latex images from old posts. I've talked to Euler about this problem, let's wait a bit for further information.

I don't know what's going on. I hope the problem will be gone soon. As for now if you want to see the latex code of the non-appearing latex images, just click on the "quote" button as if you were to reply the thread and you'll see the latex code that you can't see otherwise.

I too am having the same problem.

First a question. In some forums you're supposed to write "tex" and "/tex" in brackets which surround the equation. In other forums you use "math" and "/math". Which do we use here. Do both work?

Let me try it out. I'm going to write the greek symbol "mu"

"math" - \(\displaystyle \mu\)
"tex" - \(\displaystyle \mu\)

Seems that neither works

Hey Pete,
Indeed, some forums need the \(\displaystyle tag. Here we use \(\displaystyle [\math] and this is the only one working. I mean, normally working.

I've talked to Euler a few days ago about the problem, and the only thing we can do as of now is to wait. I'm a person that use Latex in almost all his posts so be sure I didn't forget about the problem. (Everyone has the same problem by the way)\)\)
