Hi everyone. As you probably know, XenForo (the engine SciForums is based on) uses dollar sign for formatting purposes, so text following it becomes wonky. The simple hack to fix this to this is to place dollar sign (with or without amount) in Italic. Example: I got $1 but I wish it was $2. I got $1 but I wish it was $2.

Is it because the dollar sign is used as a delimiter for TeX code? Test: Dollar signs: $ code $: $E=mc^2, i\hbar \frac{\partial \psi}{\partial dt} = -\frac{\hbar^2}{2m}\nabla \psi + V\psi$ \( code \): \(E=mc^2, i\hbar \frac{\partial \psi}{\partial dt} = -\frac{\hbar^2}{2m}\nabla \psi + V\psi\) [tex]code[/tex]: \(E=mc^2, i\hbar \frac{\partial \psi}{\partial dt} = -\frac{\hbar^2}{2m}\nabla \psi + V\psi\) Seems all give the same result. Useful trick with the italics, though.

I think so. Of all signs, they picked one of the most used... But well, at least I figured out this little trick. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!

You'd need to change: Code: <script type="text/x-mathjax-config"> MathJax.Hub.Config({tex2jax: {inlineMath: [['$','$'], ['\\(','\\)']]}}); </script> to: Code: <script type="text/x-mathjax-config"> MathJax.Hub.Config({tex2jax: {inlineMath: [['$','$'], ['\\(','\\)']], processEscapes: true}}); </script> You can then \$ in any mathematic equations so they don't have that problem.
