    How to use

    • [math pre=”2″]{Latex Syntax}[/math]: Same as pre=”1″, but it doesn’t show [math] and [/math] code.

    Option2: align

    • Usage: [math align=”{Choose Alignment}”]{Latex Syntax}[/math]
    • {Choose Alignment}: “top” (default), “bottom”, “middle”, “left”, “right”.
    • It is equivalent to <img style=”float:{Choose Alignment}”/>
    • For example, [math align=”left”]x^2+y^2[/math] will put the latex form at left with the wrapping text.
