I'm developer of WP-QuickLaTeX plugin.
It is developed for mathematicians driven by feeling that math doesn't deserve to be published with poor quality on the Web.
In fact, besides correct formula positioning and meaningful error messages, WP-QuickLaTeX can store images on a local server too.
How to do that is explained on WP-QuickLaTeX home page:
"If you want maximum performance you might create
ql-cache folder in
wp-content. It will be used by WP-QuickLaTeX for caching necessary data to decrease loading time of your pages. Just make sure
ql-cache is writable (by
chmod 777 or through File Manager in cPanel)."
Soon we will release new version of the plugin. It will include such features:
- Precise adjustment of font size (in pixels). Rendering in specified size will be done by high-quality rendering engine (with anti-aliasing, etc.) not by image interpolation.
- Adjustment of foreground and background colors. Now we use black color for text and transparent background. New version will allow to set up colors a-la HTML/CSS way (i.e. using hex digits for RGB: #FFFFFF for white, #FF0000 for red, etc.)
- Settings page in administrator dashboard for tuning up.

I would appreciate any feedback (please leave comments on WP-QuickLaTeX home page or send me email via firstname.lastname@example.org).
Besides we have many plans for the future - stay tuned.
As for displayed equations, you can use LaTeX command
\displaystyle to force this mode.
And yes, another problem is that some environments cannot be used in inline mode. But there are exist some workarounds (like using
aligned instead of
align environment). Please use it for the moment.
We are planning to implement displayed math mode in future versions.
New version of WP-QuickLaTeX has been released. It includes displayed equations and custom LaTeX document preamble among other new features. I would appreciate any feedback on its usage.
Now it allows native LaTeX syntax directly in the posts, display equations numbering,
tikZ graphics, etc.
