[Tex/LaTex] How to use LaTeX on blogspot


I'm trying to use LaTeX on my blog, but I could not figure out how. Has anyone done it before? Any feedback or related information would be greatly appreciated.

I would say use MathJax. It's a AJAX engine for LaTeX syntax that now is distributed by a CDN so you don't have to upload a single file to your blogspot account.

To enable MathJax, just drop in

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/mathjax/2.7.1/latest/MathJax.js">
 extensions: ["tex2jax.js","TeX/AMSmath.js","TeX/AMSsymbols.js"],
 jax: ["input/TeX", "output/HTML-CSS"],
 tex2jax: {
     inlineMath: [ ['$','$'], ["\\(","\\)"] ],
     displayMath: [ ['$$','$$'], ["\\[","\\]"] ],
 "HTML-CSS": { availableFonts: ["TeX"] }

after the header (<head>) in the Blogger template (Design→Edit HTML→Edit Template).

Googling "install mathjax blogspot" led me to a page on the Web Applications StackExchange: MathJax on Blogger.

See the MathJax pages for more information about configuring and using it.
