I am writing a math blog in WordPress. I would like to include commutative diagrams and other simple diagrams in my blog. Which diagram library in LaTeX is available in WordPress? I am new to WordPress, and my site is hosted, so I'm not sure how to add plugins to a hosted site, so I'm looking for what is built-in to WordPress.

    Welcome to WordPress Development. This is not a buitlin feature and must therefore be added via 3rd party plugins. I'm afraid plugin recommendations are off-topic here on this site, according to help center. But it's of course possible to add images into the content editor, but I'm not sure if you need help with that?

The Wordpress-produced plugin Jetpack has LaTeX support. See this link. However, in my development, it didn't seem to work, so I've been using a plugin called MathJax-LaTeX. Yesterday, I discovered a plugin called WP QuickLaTeX, but I haven't been able to test it yet. Hope this helps.


It would appear that you can do this quite easily via https://en-gb.wordpress.org/plugins/wp-latex/ (caveat - although I'm familiar with LaTeX, I haven't personally used this). You can set up an image generation server locally or use WordPress's own.

  • WordPress is hosting my blog. How do I add a plugin to a blog WordPress is hosting? Oct 6, 2016 at 19:43
  • OK. I don't have a wordpress hosted account to check, but they claim here that it's supported natively: en.support.wordpress.com/latex - did this not work for you or did you not have a chance to try it yet?
