I came here looking for a way for embedding formulas in the posts. Gamedev now supports Mathjax, so Latex formulas can be easily embedded by enclosing them in double dollar signs ($$).

So writing this in the post:

$$\sqrt{(F{_{x}})^{2}+(F{_{y}})^{2}}$$

Results in this:

$$\sqrt{(F{_{x}})^{2}+(F{_{y}})^{2}}$$

Which is plain html (no img).

But I want to write inline maths, rather than having it split into a new paragraph. Mathjax docs say I should use single $ to wrap it, but that doesn't see to work here.

I want to define $f(x) = x$ mid-sentence.I want to define $f(x) = x$ mid-sentence.

Defining $$f(x) = x$$ this way take too much space when you do it loads.Defining $$f(x) = x$$ this way take too much space when you do it loads.

Is there some config someone can change to make it work?

Anyway, here's how to do it:

Defining \(f(x) = x\) mid-sentence.Defining \(f(x) = x\) mid-sentence.

You can also use the similar \[f(x) = x\] to split into a new paragraph.You can also use the similar \[f(x) = x\] to split into a new paragraph.
