How to insert Latex on qoto's discourse?

$$1 + 2 = 5$$

@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.

\ ( $12+24$ \ )

@compass_straight_edge @freemo @design_RG Even that doesn't work and I am trying to follow what is here

@zleap @freemo @design_RG $1 + 2 = 5$

@compass_straight_edge @freemo @design_RG That isn't rendering here, maybe i am missing a plug in or something.

That didnt render here because its not the proper format to make it render... you need to use the format mentioned here:

qoto.org/@zleap/10477372960665

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

because your not following the instructions... it clearly states a backslash followed by a parenthesis, then the latext, then the inverse on closing.

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

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

Off hand I dont recall if i added MathLatex to discourse.. I need to check the plugins to see if its even there. Did I mention somewhere that it is supported on discourse?

We **do** support $$LaTeX$$ here on the social media side though.

[math]\LaTeX[\math]

@freemo @zleap @design_RG I recall seeing a post with formulas on the discourse so I assumed it worked.
(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.

OK thanks

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

I think i had it enabled at one point but it broke something and I may have had to disable it on discourse. Not sure though.

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

We already solved this, but thanks.

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

personaljournal.ca/paigntoncod

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

Perhaps also use
latex.org/forum/
if we need help beyond that.

If enabling latex on discourse is important to you I'll take a closer look at it and see if i can get it up again. Probably isnt too hard.

@freemo @design_RG @compass_straight_edge I was thinking just a q/a thing but it may be useful, thanks eap for support

@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
