By and large, I am quite happy with the LaTeX support provided by wordpress, which hosts my blog (and many other maths blogs out there); it is certainly superior to the maths support of most other off-the-shelf blog formats I have looked at. But it does have some annoying bugs and quirks; a lot of perfectly good LaTeX gets converted into “Formula does not parse”.

It occurred to me that maybe one should start a page that collects all the known bugs so that they can be sent at some point to the wordpress programmers to fix. So, here is my initial list of known bugs: any other wordpress users out there are very welcome to contribute their own.

Convention: I will drop the “latex” when I want to show a fragment of LaTeX source code without making it compile, e.g.

$\int_{-\infty}^\infty e^{-\pi x^2}\ dx = 1$ becomes $\int_{-\infty}^\infty e^{-\pi x^2}\ dx = 1$.

[Update, Feb 14: The bugs have now been fixed; see comments below.]
