I was asking a maths question and I don't know how to write the integral. So I'm starting to look for the MathJaX from Faq page but not there, I go to main page not there, I go to about page not there. I go to ask questionstill not there and finally edit equestion and i found MathJaX (http://www.math.harvard.edu/texman/).
I would like to suggest to put the MathJaX in main page or menu bar above the asking question box. MathJaX isn't the one of the important thing in asking maths question.

We try to keep this question "featured", which makes it show up in the "Community Bulletin" box on the right hand side the main page on Math.SE. So you should have seen it on the main page.

It can also be found if you go to the FAQ on main and follow the link to our detailed list of FAQs (which has been recently re-organized).

But you are right, it should be more prominently placed. I've edited the FAQ page to include some direct links to MathJax help. Anything more can only be done by the SE team.

    $\begingroup$ Just a note: many people find the harvard tutorial too intimidating/extensive (it really has a lot of extra stuff that doesn't work in mathjax.) You may want to make your own tutorial and bug a comm team member to update the link. Like meta.chemistry.stackexchange.com/questions/86/… $\endgroup$ Jul 18, 2012 at 3:38
  • $\begingroup$ @Manishearth: the link included in the FAQ page on Main now is not to the harvard tutorial, but to MathJax's homepage and an official list of supported MathJax commands. $\endgroup$ Jul 18, 2012 at 10:31
  • $\begingroup$ Not the faq link, the link on the sidebar that you get when writing a question. You need to bug a dev for it. $\endgroup$ Jul 18, 2012 at 10:52
  • $\begingroup$ @Manish: Ah. I see. Thanks. $\endgroup$ Jul 18, 2012 at 10:54
  • $\begingroup$ Shog said he'll ask a dev about it, but he probably forgot.. I just bugged balpha, if you want I can tell him to try it out for you guys as well. $\endgroup$ Jul 18, 2012 at 10:56
  • $\begingroup$ @Manish: thanks, that would be appreciated. If you do, can you ask him to change it to meta.math.stackexchange.com/questions/1773 ? I don't have the time to write a tutorial right now, but when I do I'll probably just add it as an answer there. $\endgroup$ Jul 18, 2012 at 11:04
  • $\begingroup$ OK. I'll copy-paste my post, cauterizing off the chem part as an answer there later, then you can just post your answer as an edit to the post. (Otherwise a user may have to sift through the answers there) $\endgroup$ Jul 18, 2012 at 11:06
