I set up an AskBot site to run discussion groups for my math classes this past academic semester: http://mcmcclur.askbot.com/

I had no problem using MathJax with the site all semester long but it seems to have suddenly stopped working and I have no clue why. On the /settings/MARKUP page, I've checked the "Mathjax support" box and pointed to the MathJax CDN repository here: http://cdn.mathjax.org/mathjax/latest/

Again, this is the exact setup that worked for me for months and, as far as I can tell, there's been no change on the MathJax side. I also tried pointing to an earlier version of MathJax like so: http://cdn.mathjax.org/mathjax/2.3-latest/

Is there anything that changed on the AskBot side that might have caused this problem?

Problem solved!

Loading my AskBot page with the Web Console on, I noticed that the browser was searching for: http://cdn.mathjax.org/mathjax/latest//MathJax.js

Note the double slash. Looking at my configuration, I noticed that I was indeed pointing to
http://cdn.mathjax.org/mathjax/latest/

I just deleted the trailing slash to point to
http://cdn.mathjax.org/mathjax/latest

But again, this was working before.
