Quick LaTeX Tutorial

Recommended Posts

Was thinking of writing a little math toolbar thing so that you can just click on the math symbols and the latex code would be inserted into the textbox.

I've also got a copy of the latest latexrender code, so I'll post that off to you soon with some instructions blike. I've managed to fix a few of the problems we have when quoting equations; the images produced are now transparent with a very minor reduction in quality from what we have atm, although it requires a little more CPU :)

Read the initial post: subscripts are generated by using _

 

For example, A_{n^2} produces: [math]A_{n^2}[/math]

Dear Dave

 

I have tried numerous times to use the latex code for Matrix and Align equations. When I use the command for matrix I get:

 

[math]\begin{matrix} w & x \\ annoyed & z \end{matrix}[/math]

 

and for align:

 

[math]\begin{align} w & x \\ annoyed & z \end{align}[/math]

 

As you can see the ampersand persists. I have read a few 'latex' manuals and tried various code combinations. Could you or someone else be able to provide some information to overcome this problem.

 

Regards

The problem is that when you type the & into vB, it cleverly converts it into the html symbol for an ampersand; namely & which is why you're having problems. When I get back from holiday, I'll fix it; it's a fairly simple fix.

 

Thanks for highlighting the problem though.

Dear Dave

 

Thanks for the reply, I had a thought that might be the case.

How would I write out something like [math]\sqrt{25} = 5[/math]? How would I put the [math]5[/math] above the [math]\sqrt{25}[/math]?

Use \frac{5}{\sqrt{25}} - the first argument of \frac lets you specify the numerator, the second will give you the denominator.

I saw on the announcements that blike's upgraded some stuff. He probably forgot to put the latex code back in.
