Mathematical formulas

You can easily include mathematical formulas on your site with the math plugin:

$$ J_\alpha(x) = \sum_{m=0}^\infty \frac{(-1)^m}{m! \, \Gamma(m + \alpha + 1)}{\left({\frac{x}{2}}\right)}^{2 m + \alpha} $$ or $$ a^2 + b^2 = c^2 $$

The plugin uses Javascript from ( or images created by codecogs (if javascript is disabled) and is thus dependent on these services being up and running.


Download the plugin from and unzip it to the plugins directory of your GetSimple installation.

Make sure, jQuery is included in your template.

Alternatively you can set the variable $math_mode at the top of the plugin file to 1 (image from codecogs) or 3 (MathJax and image as noscript fallback). In both cases you need to adhere to the usage policy of codecogs.


Include your LaTeX formulas within $$ and $$, e.g. $$ a^2 + b^2 = c^2 $$.
