I sent @Administrator a message asking about this a while back with no response.

I thought I’d see if there was any other interest.

Would anyone else like to see support for LaTeX added?

Occasionally, discussions get more technical and I think it would be helpful.

I found the below add-on but I’m not familiar with the xenforo platform, so I’m not even sure if it’s compatible with the site or if there are other issues.

Maybe if you referenced one of the technical threads in the forum and compared what the members had to do without the benefit of LaTeX to express their thoughts others reading this thread would respond to your question.

If you want to support physics and chemistry notation, I would suggest AsciiMath. Much easier to learn and write than LaTeX.

I wouldn't bother at all (and I write this as someone who wrote his MSc thesis in LaTeX).

I find that to be an odd comment. If I want to communicate information in formulas, why would that not be an optimal choice? What better alternative is there currently on the site?

And if it’s as simple as installing an add-on (and I don’t know that it is) then why “not bother”?
