Trouble seeing LaTeX in posts!

I noticed a short while ago that I can no longer see the LaTeX in posts. Anyone else having this problem?

Re: Trouble seeing LaTeX in posts!

I've just temporarily disabled Latex BBCode in order to deal with this issue - could anyone please tell me exactly when this problem started ? (that would help me track down whether it is due to the server update or to the software update I performed in anticipation of the server update)

Thanks !

Re: Trouble seeing LaTeX in posts!

Latex can now temporarily be used when posting and seeing new posts; however, old posts containing Latex cannot be parsed correctly, therefore you won't be able to see Latex symbols in old posts (just the Latex code). This issue will be addressed shortly through another temporary patch (probably tomorrow).

These are only temporary solutions and I will need to work more on this issue as it seems to me that I will need to bring some modifications to the source code of the Latex renderer (which is written in Perl, which I know nothing about, but most importantly these modifications will address some server-side issues that I am completely unfamiliar with, technically speaking).

Thank you all for your patience, this might take a while to solve this

I can't tell you exactly when it occurred, but I noticed it no more than 15 minutes before I began this thread. Thank you for all your efforts to correct this!

Re: Trouble seeing LaTeX in posts!

A very short message to say that we recovered our own Latex functionality (it needed to be compiled on Debian Linux, therein lied my sin).
The next part of the problem that I will need to address will be the re-parsing of the Latex code in some 58,000 posts (I don't believe it will be that difficult to write a script doing this and I'll look into it next weekend).
