9. @mathgarage
Please note that most of us we Volunteers aren't into coding. You need Staff help so please be patient while waiting for them to respond.

10. Latex isn't supported on WordPress, and those tags won't work in the forums.

11. hi, i want to be able to insert equations like the following blogger does here

http://topologicalmusings.wordpress.com/2008/01/23/integration-bee-challenging-integrals/

but i cant i dont know why

12. @mathgarage
WordPress.com supports \LaTeX, a typesetting system that’s really good at formatting mathematical formulas and equations.
See here:

13. obviously wordpress supports latex see the above link

14. http://mathgarage.wordpress.com/2012/07/29/my-first-ever-post-on-wordpress/ i dont know why the code doesnt get translate to what i want??

15. Yes, it does and I'm sorry I posted the posting source code link the first time I answered your rather than posting the LaTeX link. If you still have LaTeX issues then Staff will assist you.

16. Apologies I stand corrected.

Okay back to your original comment, you typed $\frac{1}{2}$ and said it didn't work. I added "latex i\hbar" to the beginning of that.

So I typed in $latex i\hbar\frac{1}{2}$ into my post, and that worked.

17. Copy this and replace your existing text on your blog post.

$latex i\int\frac{x^2-1}{(x^2+1)\sqrt{x^4+1}}dx$

$latex i\hbar\frac{1}{2}$

18. many thx, wondering how come the official latex page in wordpress didnt mention anything about the $latex code$
