+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #694700 +++ Could you please install MathJax plugin for latex math on the blog of metrics wordpress blog? Thank you Saptarshi
Okay that helps, thanks. This plugin would be my ideal scenario: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/mathjax-latex/ It appears to be configurable in terms of where it gets MathJax from (local, MathJax CDN, or a custom URL), claims to only load it when the page calls for it, we can deploy it like any other WP plugin, and it sounds like it will require no special actions by the post Author(s). Any thoughts on this wrapper?
That works well, although make sure that when it is configured, the content is retrieved locally (not the MathJax CDN). This will mean you have to download the needed JS separately and save it on the server and then set up through the plugin the ability to talk with that local JS copy. The reason I originally reviewed the file itself is because it was version 2.0, and this plugin appears to be 1.0, although I see no major differences that would cause security issues (functionality is still the same).

Excellent, I'm happy with that. Summary: We will: 1) install http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/mathjax-latex/ 2) configure it to use a *local* copy of the JS files (*not* MathJax CDN), right on blogmo. This entails a separate download apart from the plugin, but should otherwise be straightforward. 3) Activate it for the Metrics blog here: http://blog.mozilla.org/metrics/. Moving to the WebOps component and unassigning... anyone on WebOps should be able to take care of this. :)

In stage: 1. Installed the mathjax-latex plugin via the SVN method (as normal). 2. Downloaded the separate JS package and configured the plugin to use it (instead of the CDN). 3. Activated for the metrics blog. There are no obvious errors, and a test post on stage using the plugin syntax appeared to render the equation as expected. Will proceed with prod.
Deployed and tested in prod - looks to be functional. If you have any further comments or concerns, don't hesitate to let me know. Have a good day !
