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

The blog I need help with is maikolsolis.wordpress.com.

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.

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.

Best.

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.

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.

Regards.
