Citromon, yes there are. Have a look at this thread. Never tried, but I suppose the server will need latex installed (or equivalent).

You might also try Mimetex. It works quite well if you don't have a LaTeX distribution on your server.

MathTex is nicer, but you'll need LaTeX or a host that can provide you access to a cgi-bin parser as a remote call.

Is there a way to have math input on a phpbb forum without knowing LaTEX syntax?

Your posters are going to need some standard syntax to use a bbCode to render math..

I don't quite understand what you mean. :?

I'm trying to integrate math into my forum but I want to make it user friendly. For example to use the bold tags, you use tags.
When I integrate this, all math will be entered using the [tex][/tex] tags.
The problem is users will need to enter their input as \sqrt2 etc. and I don't think they will want to learn this syntax

If you really must, have a look at this equation editor and the associated tutorial.

Today I opened my forum and I saw that all math formulas do not display. I do not know what has happened. Instead of formulas there is only written

Code: Select all

[math]
Does somebody know what should I check in order to find out what has happened?

Well, I have phpbb 3.0.11 and I am using mathjax CDN.
Here is a sample what I see as I write

Code: Select all

[tex] x^{2} [/tex]
http://math.ge/forum/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=656

And one more question: I actually forgot where I have indicated
mathjax CDN: http://cdn.mathjax.org/mathjax/latest/M ... _HTMLorMML
Can somebody remind me where this address is indicated in my forum? I just want to check that I indicated it correctly. Probably I indicated this address during the instalation of the MOD, but I don't remember because I intalled this MOD few months ago :(

Paata, it seems MathJax changed their CDN provider.
The HTTP url remains the same, however the HTTPS url was changed.
I'll push a new version ASAP. In the meantime you can disable "force HTTPS" in the mod settings (.MODS category).

The new SSL URL is:

Code: Select all

https://c328740.ssl.cf1.rackcdn.com/mathjax/latest
Btw you're using

Code: Select all

config=TeX-AMS-MML_HTMLorMML
(just checked the page source), it can be changed in the CP.

Modify MathJax Style

Post by mathdlir »

When mathjax is processing there is big padding inline text. and after loading completely padding get out and is nice.

To override MathJax CSS, you need to add the rules in JSON notation on the MathJax.Hub.Config() call.
You should edit styles/prosilver/template/mathjax.html.

Example:

Code: Select all

<script type="text/x-mathjax-config">
MathJax.Hub.Config({
    "HTML-CSS": {
        styles: {
            ".MathJax": {
                "text-align": "center",
                "direction": "rtl",
            },
        },
    },
    // ...
});
// ...
</script>
If you want to style the preview text, you can add CSS rules directly in the theme. The class is MathJax_Preview.

Thank Citromon. How to put equation in center. [latex] is for inline equations?
for example in some boards $ is for inline and $$ is for display equation (new line in center).

How can we do this in MathJax MOD?

  • Go to .MODS->Mathjax->BBCode Settings and create a new BBCode.
  • Now go to Posting->Messages->BBCodes and edit that bbcode HTML replacement code.
  • Find: <span class="MathJaxBB">
  • Replace with: <span class="MathJaxBB" style="display:block;text-align:center;">
Note that the BBCode must be created through the MathJax settings or it won't be recognized as a math bbcode.
