## amistre64 5 years ago Why is a broken equation editor a new feature? Seems to me to be a step backwards; gonna have to start piling rocks together to express numerals and work my way thru roman numberals ... ;)

1. amistre64

attach file seems to work still; but no equation editor....

2. anonymous

._. LOL , I like the rock idea (more of a manual person) ^_^ :D

3. anonymous

but still, didn't get what the attachment meant .-.

4. amistre64

the attachment means that the attach file button still works; but the equation button is broken

5. amistre64

and it was the only pic i could find on the schools computer

6. anonymous

LOL, true, so I wasn't the only one facing such problem

7. amistre64

i think there is a conspiricay afoot to limit our ability to answer quaestions in a way that resembles a modicum of intelligence lol

Hmm... What browser?

I think it still works. Can't figure out how to write fractions.

(I just tried it and it seems to work fine for me, so want to get a bit more info as I try and find the issue.)

chaguanas -- yeah, I still need to get a toolbar item for fractions in there. You can do fractions in two ways. If the fraction is over the entire thing, you can use \over. e.g.: 2x^2 + 3x + 2 \over 3x^2 + 2x - 9 is: $2x^2 + 3x + 2 \over 3x^2 + 2x - 9$ If you have multiple equations, you can use \frac{numerator}{denominator}, e.g.: \frac{1}{2}x^2 + 3x + \frac{2}{x^3} is: $\frac{1}{2}x^2 + 3x + \frac{2}{x^3}$

$oh\over good$

Ok, I just found the issue with the math -- looks like it's IE only. Will try and get it fixed for tomorrow's push; sorry about that!

firefox aint doin nothing for me... it doesnt even translate it from the textbox...

16. amistre64

$\sqrt{3+1}$

17. amistre64

nuthin...

Hm. K. (Hehe, mine renders it perfectly :p)

Yeah, I think I know why this is happening.

20. amistre64

knowing and fixing .... 2 different things lol. Its still broke on my end, and others as well...

21. anonymous

yeah..it isnt working at my end too

test $a^2+b^2$ too heavy for mathjax shadowfiend?

23. watchmath

No LaTeX no fun :( (I am going off) How if you use image instead shadowfiend? for example using mimetex.cgi. It is uglier than mathjax but it is lightweight.

24. watchmath

Ok, it works in firefox but not in Chrome :).

25. amistre64

it aint working in firefox....

Oh, sorry -- when I said I knew why it was happening I didn't mean I was going to fix it immediately :) Everything should be working now. It's interesting because it seems like which browsers broke was inconsistent. Anyway, everything's fixed up. We switched to a new version of MathJax and their way of loading the configuration file changed, but I failed to change along with it. I'm guessing in certain situations it went ahead and loaded the default configuration, and in others it failed to.

27. watchmath

So are you using MathJax 1.1 ?

Yep. There are still some bugs with rendering in real time, unfortunately, which I'll be pinging the MathJax folks about.
