Hello Josep,

You will need to activate the MathJax plugin first in Administration -> Configure site -> General settings.

Then you'll have an extra icon in the visual editor. Click the downwards arrow / "Toggle toolbar" icon and you'll see the formula editor icon displayed.

When you click on it, it may take a couple of seconds to load the editor. Then you can enter your formulas. If you are unfamiliar with TeX commands, you could check a tutorial on how to write formulas. There are bound to be other when you do an online search to help you get started.

Cheers

Hi 

I have followed his steps. The equation icon appears. I click on the icon. A popup window of the mathematical formula editor appears. But it appears blank and I can not write anything.
I tried to add an image to this post to see what appears, but I could not add it by: "Sorry, anonymous or newly registered users are not allowed to post links. Please reword your post to remove any links or URLs and try again. "

What I can do?

Hello Josep,

I did some more testing and saw that it doesn't load on an https site. Initially, I tested locally on an http site. Thus, if you have an SSL certificate for your site, it's a known issue that was reported at https://bugs.launchpad.net/mahara/+bug/1575923 There is no fix yet that we are aware of.

Cheers
