Forum FeaturesLet's put all the different forum features here as an "easy reference". The Math Tag Allows you to use LaTeX to format math expressions very neatly. See: http://www.mathsisfun.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=1581 Also: A LaTeX tutorial.

Re: Forum FeaturesThe 'post topic' button appears when you're in a board (eg. Introductions). It's in roughly the same place as the 'post reply' button is when you're in a topic. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #8 20080323 17:12:17
Re: Forum FeaturesI haven't used the Hide Tag and Colour Tag for some time, and I'm just testing it out. Last edited by Chocó (20080323 17:15:51) "Reality leaves a lot to the imagination," ~ John Lennon #9 20081229 13:06:23

Re: Forum FeaturesThanks for the insight all. But i'd like to know how to make text bigger. I surf using my mobile phone and most times i find it difficult viewing the solutions to most math problems(and its not the font size of my phone as that have been moderately increased) ....and since the solutions come highlighted when i click instead of having it go bigger it ends up being distorted. #14 20091221 00:23:20
Re: Forum FeaturesHi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #15 20100506 16:11:00
