Why do I see LaTeX math in first second when page is loading?

You see LaTeX math in first second because math renderer is loading. When it fully loads all LaTeX math on the page will be automatically converted to normal math.

Which library do you use to add math support?

Plugin is using MathJax library. It was created long ago (in 2009) and it has support for most of the browsers. All redundant extensions are removed in order to speed up loading.

How to set a color for a part of formula?

You can set a color for a part of formula by wrapping this part with \color{color}{text} LaTeX command. Everything inside {text} will have a color specified in {color}. Example: \color{red}{a^2}=\color{blue}{b^2}+\color{green}{c^2}.

I have a problem/idea. Who should I talk with?

## Reviews

### works still on WP 5.6

9. Januar 2021.
even though it has not received updates for a while, the plugin works very well on most current installations. If you use the classic editor and not the new block editor, of course. Insert Math is a splendid way to insert TeX-like math symbols and formulae, which makes it very handy for scientific blogs.
