Latex path not specified errors

    I’m getting “latex path not specified” errors on my blog. It was not doing this two days ago.

    Thank you for your help!

    The blog I need help with is


    You’re not alone. I have this problem also. From what I gather the issue is in wordPress itself and there’s nothing we can do about it. Our best bet is to save up the rendered images and upload them in place of the latex code.

    A huge hassle, but then again the latex rendering feature has always been glitchy. Either it works or it doesn’t, and I have keep previewing after removing a space or some piece of text or what not, when the same equation rendered perfectly elsewhere.



    Is there a bug tracking issue for this problem that I can point my support staff and customers to?



    I have over 2000 formulas that I cannot create images for. I am a math teacher, and use LaTeX everywhere on my school’s math website. I am 100% dependent on it working at this point. For the past 2 years, no issues!!! I hope WordPress fixes this today!!!! My students are really upset they cannot access all of their lesson notes, and as a busy teacher, I do not have time to create and upload images to those LaTeX codes. It’s too much!!! I am so stressed right now!




    Does anything here help LaTeX
