Writr theme - LaTeX support is broken.

  1. I changed to the writr theme but all my LaTeX annotation are now broken. All the images produced by the $latex$ tags, has a yellow foreground with black background.

    For example the code $latex 2 \times 10^{20}$ produce the following image\times+10^{20}&bg=303030&fg=Headings&s=0

  2. I'll tag this thread for Staff assistance. Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting.

  3. Thanks for the answer. I hope that the staff fix this issue soon, I really like this theme.


  4. Thanks for the report. I think this might have something to do with the colour scheme you chose, since the same code looks OK on my test site with Writr active:

    I'll report this issue to our developers and will keep you posted here.

  5. Thanks for your answer,

    Sorry but I don't have the same behavior. I changed to all the color schemes, tried to make a fresh post and nothing works.

    I made a dummy test post with this code

    $latex 2\times 10^{20}$
    $latex \sin^2 \theta + \cos^2 \theta = 1$
    $latex e^{i\pi} + 1 = 0$

    Here is the result

    I haven't any CSS customization upgrade, so I can't change the colors.


  6. Hi there, you'll need to use this technique to change the foreground and background colours of your formulas:

    Our developers are looking at a long-term change in how LaTeX colours are determined but I don't have an ETA. The technique above is the best way to ensure consistent display of your formulas.

  7. Hi.
    Yes, I know about changing the foreground and background in Latex formulas. Unfortunately 90% of my posts are about mathematics and change all of them, in my opinion, it's not worth it.

    The only solution for me now, it's change to another theme. Maybe I could revisit it in the future to see if something has changed.


  8. Sure, I completely understand.
