Adding Equations, Formulas, and Math to your WordPress posts
To incorporate Math Formulas to my WordPress posts, I found following solution that works really well for me. I hope you will find it useful.
Let’s start from the beginning. I wanted to add Math Formulas to my WordPress posts and after searching WordPress support, I found LaTeX tag. It sounds simple: embed your equation’s LaTeX syntax like this $latex your-latex-code-here$.
The only problem is I don’t know LaTeX syntax. I looked around for a stand alone application that can render LaTeX with preview pane. LEd looked promising until I realized that I would need to install an additional LaTeX typesetting, like MiKTeX – a whooping 160 MB.
Instead I decided to look for online solution and CodeCogs LaTeX Equation Editor works perfectly. It has buttons at the top for different operators and formulas and more importantly it renders, very fast, the formula as you type it.
I also found following articles with LaTeX examples very useful:
