# How to enter formulas on math or cstheory?

The help icon only leads to general markdown reference. The way to enter formulas should be mentioned, preferably in a separate section and with a link to Tex reference.

How to enter a forumla isn't obvious. Either that or the preview box isn't evaluating the formulas. –  Jonathan Jan 8 '11 at 22:35

Both cstheory and math have formatting help links for this in the "How to Format" section on the right hand side of the page, both of which point here.

I'm sorry but this is not the case in mt browser: twitpic.com/3l71he/full What am I missing? –  9000 Dec 30 '10 at 13:35
@9000: Put the cursor focus in the body text box: the right hand side changes. I agree the UI isn't ideal. –  Jon Seigel Dec 30 '10 at 17:32
Yes it does, thanks. –  9000 Dec 30 '10 at 18:21
