How to insert Latex on qoto's discourse?

@compass_straight_edge I know this is possible just not sure how to

Inline math Latex support - Use \ ( and \ ) for inline LaTeX, and \ [ and \ ] for display mode.

\CH3\

I really don't understand how to do this can @freemo or @design_RG help please.

@zleap @freemo @design_RG didn't work on the discourse either

@compass_straight_edge @freemo @design_RG you may be better off simply using a normal latex editor or over leaf, generate the output then use the screen grab tool to select an area to grab around the LaTeX output and then paste in here.

A bit of a faff, that though.

@zleap @freemo @design_RG nahh that is too much work

@compass_straight_edge @freemo @design_RG yeah it is a little. No harm in suggesting though.

@zleap @freemo @design_RG [math]1 + 2 = 5 [/math]

@freemo @compass_straight_edge @design_RG

I can't get it to work, sorry. it just displays the text \CH3\

@freemo @zleap @design_RG this is the link to this conversation.

@compass_straight_edge @freemo @design_RG I posted that from the about page,

We **do** support \(LaTeX\) here on the social media side though.

@freemo @compass_straight_edge @design_RG

[math]\LaTeX[\math]

(Also because there is a math section).

I think you are correct it works on discourse, but I dont remember for sure. But it definitely works here.

Follow the instructions here and verify your format works, then copy that over to discourse and see if it works there for you too. I do know the format is the same here and there if its active over there.

@freemo @compass_straight_edge @design_RG

OK thanks

@freemo

I don't think it works. I also tried the examples from discourse-math.

>> @design_RG help please.

Sorry but LaTeX is not my thing. No idea how to use it, although the output is pretty for Math work.

@design_RG @compass_straight_edge @freemo

I can try and help with LaTeX, in fact i think it may be worth adding this to my

We can perhaps use the discourse forum as there is a section under Chemistry on LaTeX

Perhaps also use

https://latex.org/forum/

if we need help beyond that.

@compass_straight_edge THERE YA GO! It worked.

\(LaTeX\)

@compass_straight_edge It takes a few second to adjust too. but that is fine, it works now
