Unfortunately, no LaTeX add-on exists for ElkArte (the software that runs this forum). I'll try to build one in my spare time, but in the meantime, you can use the online LaTeX editor from CodeCogs and link to the images here. (An idea of how to use it can be found on StackExchange.)
Just enter your equation in the box, and then right-click on the "Click here to Download Image (GIF)" link, and select "Copy link address" from the contextual menu. Then come back here, click on "Insert an image" icon and paste the link. (Leave the width and height parameters empty.) Here's an example:
If you have quesetions, please reply to this post. Thanks.
At the top of each post editing area is a set of icons that will allow you to make text in your post bold, italic, underlined, etc. You can also center text, select from a very limited selection of fonts, font sizes, and font colors, add quotes, code, and tables, create bulleted or numbered lists, and add smileys. This should all be self-explanatory.
What's not so self-explanatory:
You can also add a spoiler, which hides the spoiler text until someone clicks on it. Here's an example: I bet you didn't know that Spoiler (click to show/hide)
is really Luke Skywalker's father.
You can also add footnotes, for material that is too lengthy to include in parentheses.
You can also include pictures:
You can not upload pictures to this forum; they will need to be hosted elsewhere. (Please do not hotlink to images where that is not permitted.)
To start a new thread (i.e., a topic), go to the forum you are interested in (they are grouped by categories) and click on "New Topic". This will allow you to create the first post in that thread.
To respond to a post, simply click on the "Reply" button below it. Because this forum software is not threaded, I recommend using the "Quote" feature. Do not quote lengthy posts—please delete all irrelevant information from what you are quoting. It is better to quote a single line than to quote a 500-word post.
Do not hijack someone else's thread. If you want to discuss something significantly different, or have a support request, you need to create a new thread. This is a rule, not a guideline, and will be strictly enforced. Constant hijacking of threads will result in your account being suspended.
If you have other questions about starting threads and posts, please reply to this post.
