### [dev]LaTeX Rendering Extension

hi,

i've created a latex rendering class coming with a bbcode extension for phpbb that allows rendering inline latex formulas in messages. i'd really like to have some people test it and comment on it. download it here:

http://www.kellnerweg.de/~bzeiss/releas ... _05.tar.gz

it basically should work pretty well after some adjustments. detailed instructions can be found in the included README.

I am now trying to use the MOD with LaTeX extension.
As far as I have tried, only inline equations can be used. Can display equations be shown as well? If so, what is the code?

If this MOD is not compatible with display equations, will it be easy for us to modify the MOD?

It's still going! I have taken over its maintenance and you can find the latest version at http://www.mayer.dial.pipex.com/tex.htm#latexrender

There have been some discussions on it at http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=94454

try

Code: Select all

\displaystyle{\sum_{i=1}^{\infty}\frac{1}{i^2}}
(See The TeXbook for reference.)

It is possible to modify lines where the LaTeX code is rendered

Code: Select all

$string .= "\begin{document}\n";$string .= "$".$latex_formula."$\n";$string .= "\end{document}\n";

(This code may however include enough security holes for some TeXecker.)

I would really like to get this working on my forum, but I'm a newbie to Linux, PHP, and Latex. Could somebody point me to a very simple step-by-step of exactly what I need to install on my server in order to get going with this? My server is at home with me, running SuSE 9.1 Linux, so I have total access to it for installation. Thanks a lot!

Basically, you need to install LaTeX and ImageMagick. SuSE is very likely to come with both packages as they are quite common and SuSE is known to provide lots of software. teTeX is the package that implements LaTeX and either SuSE has already installed it (look around to see if you have latex and dvips files, possibly in /usr/bin) or it will have a ready-made installation on the CDs.

You may wish to run texhash from the root directory, which refreshes the database so that latex knows where all the files are.

To check if Imagemagick is installed look for convert, again possibly in /usr/bin.
