  1. Did not work for me. When I saved your code in my theme, it was changed. Frustratingly, when I tried to post it here, it was rendered correctly, so I took a screen shot which you can see here: This has to do with representing special characters.

    Also the code was rendered in black unlike all the other script, leading me to think it is not being recognized properly.

    Any ideas?

    1. Try to escape the javascript characters in Blogger Theme Edit HTML. Example as follows..

      <script type="text/x-mathjax-config">

      /* your mathjax configurations... */

  5. Thanks for the tips. I've been playing around with it. How do you make those code blocks with a scroll bar?

    I found a similar blog post but about using LaTeX. The script to edit the theme is a little different than what you use here. Can you please explain the differences between them?

  6. Hi Thanks, I can't get Mathjax to work with the blogger "Contempo" theme although this works with the older more basic themes. Any suggestions?
