WordPress and Latex

Well, this doesn’t work too well! *sadface*. How can I show you my funky Gaussian distribution?!

$$p(X) = \frac{1}{\sigma \sqrt{2\pi}} \sigma^{-{\frac{(x-\mu)^2}{2 \sigma^2}}}$$

Sooo. While trivial to install Latex plugins on a self-hosted WP instance how is one to do it at WordPress?

Edit: it turns out there is a blindingly obvious ‘plugins’ tab. Huh, obvious if I’d, you know, looked. Catch is that I need to upgrade from free to paid to do this. pffft. What’s a tightwad to do? Easy.


strip off ‘$$’ from the Latex equation, enter in dialog box, insert png file into post and BABOOM:
