LaTeX update: Read this before posting!

Recommended Posts

It appears that a lot of backslashes have been stripped from the equations. It is probably a bug in our forum software.


It seems as if it may be the process which rebuilt our posts after the recent update. I am testing it now and if the bug is there we have major beef with the developers!

Ok, a status update:


I have managed to repair all LaTeX codes (latex, math, imath and ce) posted prior to about September 1 or so. Those posted after I am not sure about, you'll have to check.


But it appears that when you go in to edit a code, the backslashes MAY be stripped out.


To me it always happens when I try to edit specific posts:

But not with others:

I'll report this as a bug.
