Enabling MathJax in Askbot¶
However, MathJax distribution is very large and is not shipped with Askbot.
To enable MathJax on your site, please do the following:
Decide where you want to store mathjax (e.g. to share it with other applications as well):
Edit webserver configuration so that url http://example.com/mathjax points to that directory and file MathJax.js is available at http://example.com/mathjax/MathJax.js.
For Apache, a following line in the configuration file (maybe within a VirtualHost section) will do:
Alias /mathjax/ /filesystem/path/to/mathjax/
Finally, enable MathJax in Askbot: “settings” -> “Markup formatting”, check “Enable MathJax” and enter url http://example.com/mathjax (link “settings” is available to site administrators in the upper right corner of the forum pages).
One day enabling MathJax will be even easier, but some more work needs to be done for this to happen.
