LaTeX math plugin for wordpress

April 10th, 2007

X told me about this great plugin for writing LaTeX formulas in wordpress blog posts. Download the plugin here.

Note: To get the plugin to work unzip the file into your wp-content/plugins directory and edit wp-latex.php using your favorite editor. Replace “http://www.forkosh.dreamhost.com/cgi-bin/mimetexpublic.cgi” on line 21 with “http://www.forkosh.dreamhost.com/mimetex.cgi” (without quotes). Save the change and activate the plugin.

Now, I can write equations like the following in my posts by typing $latex
n \propto {\sigma_{bb}\over d} \cdot \chi^k \cdot m\log m $:

n \propto {\sigma_{bb}\over d} \cdot \chi^k \cdot m\log m

In case you are interested the above is an approximate form of a population-sizing model for genetic algorithms.

See related entry here and an FAQ on how to change the size and color of the \LaTeX formula (I wasn’t successful in either changing the size or the color).
