Rifat Elementor Apr 14, 2022

Making mathematical equations in WordPress is a bit tricky because the default mathematical editor doesn't provide full support for writing mathematical terms. WordPress dynamically generates your web contents and sends HTML output to your visitor's display. But, due to the lack of support for HTML characters, writing and displaying math equations are difficult. Luckily there are plenty of plugins available that have the ability to show mathematical equations on your visitor's browsers, but not all of them perform well with Elementor. So, today we will show you what plugin is most suitable to write math equations in Elementor.

KaTeX: What Is It?

KaTeX is a WordPress plugin that allows you to write math equations and terms on your website. It uses a Tex math typesetting engine that is specifically designed for putting technical and scientific documents on your website. It is frequently used in academic circles and is largely accepted as the de facto standard for formulae and other scientific texts.

KaTeX Installation

As we said earlier, "KaTeX" is a high-quality type settings module that includes mathematical terms and scientific symbols and allows us to put them on the website.

KaTex is free to use and there are no additional licensing fees. To install this plugin, go to your WordPress dashboard > Plugins.
