### How do I write equations here?

Can you tell me how to write equations here? I started to write a blog and I can't figure out how to add equations... Do I have to create them elswere and then just insert images or is there a way to edit equations like mathjax?

My second question is whether I can somehow save the bolg before publishing it.

Equations are done in LaTeX format using the "tex" tag:

$2+2=4$

It will run the data between the tags through a LaTeX processor and create an image of the result, which replaces the tag. Make sure your "Text format" is "XHTML" for it to work, or it will just display the text like it is doing here, rather than process it.

There are a lot of LaTeX equation editors available online that will generate the commands.

You need to do it as a Blog under "create content" and down in the "Publishing options" tab, just uncheck "publish." When you want to publish, just check the box and save.
