# mathjax for tex support (General)

Hi Auge,

Deactivating the parsing globally and activating it locally. Looks interesting.

Maybe, there is another (or better) solution but this one works (and, currently, I don't saw another way to avoid conflicts). Maybe, you have another solution?!

This would be a parallel way beside the old image-replacement-with-URL-to-a-external-service?

I prefer to remove the old implementation and switch to mathjax, because mathjax can be host by the forum administrator. The bbcode_tex can be an URI, e.g. the CDN service of the Javascript files. If we use the simple on-off-switcher, we need another - as you pointed out - option. But what will be done, if the user enable the option but does not provide the URI? Isn't it a redundantly option?

Alternatively, we pre-configure the mathjax. In this case, an on-off-switcher make sense. Was it your intention?
