I am using LaTex from the JetPack plugin, which is similar but not identical to TeX for maths, for my WordPress blog where I post course work. How do I get the generated formulae to centre on the line so the equals sign lines up with the normal text that I have typed? to see what I mean please check this blog entry.

here are a the two offending pieces of LaTeX for the last two equations of the equations:

$latex = \large{\dfrac{1}{62,000}} $


\left(\large{\dfrac{10,000}{62,000,000}}\right) 100\% $

thanks for your time :)


I haven't used that plugin, so I can't speak to whether there are any configurations that would help. However, I think your issue could be solved with a simple css rule:

img.latex {
    vertical-align: middle;

would center all your LaTeX-generated images on the line they fall on.

  • A quick test in the Chrome debugger confirms that this would do the trick. – EAMann Dec 29 '11 at 16:51
  • Added it as a custom css part inside the theme options, works like a charm, thank you so very much for such a quick, simple answer :) – Neil Nelson Dec 29 '11 at 17:22
