Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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.

@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
