    Would you be willing to add LaTeX support for vBulletin to CowboysZone. I am no PHP expert, so I do not know how to add the bbcode, but I did find this page.

    http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=91545

    This is not really a big deal, but it adds the ability to print pretty equations.

    Thanks

    I will research it and see if it is something we would be interested in.

    LOL, why in hell would you need LaTeX on a Cowboys bulletin board?!?!?! LaTeX is for typesetting and is FAR more complicated than to use the wysiwyg or the basic markup language used on these types of boards.

    Honestly, it sounds more like a ploy to enable a security backdoor. Though, what do I know. I'm only an Internet Infrastructure Engineer. ;) :p:

    btw, bbcode != php.

    My only reason was for the OT and political forums where some people use equations and I thought that some people may be familiar with LaTeX. I personally use it often and find it easier than wysiwyg with respect to equations only.

    If this causes a security risk, then by all means ignore my request.

    I think Yeag may be the only mod who needs to use Latex. But it's a personal choice for him. :D
