enPlenty of LaTeX errors
http://www.tricki.org/node/474
<p>Creating a new article I kept getting LaTeX errors like this:</p>
<p>LaTeX processing error: math_failure (math_unknown_error):\frac{p}{q}</p>
<p>I left one error in the article I was making:
<a href="/article/Finding_an_interval_for_rational_numbers_with_a_high_denominator" class="stub" title="This article is a stub">Finding an interval for rational numbers with a high denominator</a>
I also found it impossible to typeset a piecewise function definition without getting a LaTeX error, I tried using two different ways, using \begin{array} and the \begin{cases} but neither worked. I searched around hoping to find a piecewise defined function in some other article, but found nothing.</p><p><a href="http://www.tricki.org/node/474" target="_blank">read more</a></p>http://www.tricki.org/node/474#commentsBug reportsSun, 23 Dec 2012 19:12:57 +0000l.livnev474 at http://www.tricki.orgRecent changes

http://www.tricki.org/node/369
<p>My article <a href="/article/To_make_a_function_nicer_without_changing_it_much_convolve_it_with_an_approximate_delta_function">To make a function nicer without changing it much, convolve it with an approximate delta function</a> is doing very strange things – somehow too strange for me to be able to do just by typing in the LaTeX wrongly (not that I can see anything wrong with it). Is there some more serious bug?</p>http://www.tricki.org/node/369#commentsBug reportsWed, 06 May 2009 12:41:38 +0000gowers369 at http://www.tricki.orgSpacing
http://www.tricki.org/node/357
<p>In <a href="/article/New_groups_from_old">New groups from old</a>, the spacing of the text in the section <em>Graphs of groups</em> seems oddly squashed, compared to other sections. I don't think I'm imagining it (though it's certainly possible)! Any thoughts?</p>http://www.tricki.org/node/357#commentsBug reportsMon, 04 May 2009 22:45:22 +0000wilton357 at http://www.tricki.orgView articles linking here

<p>The article <a href="/article/To_prove_facts_about_finite_groups_use_induction_on_the_order"><span class="redirect" title="The name of this article has changed to 'To prove facts about finite groups, use induction on the order'.">How to prove facts about finite groups by induction on the order</span></a> is linked to from the page <a href="/article/How_to_solve_problems_about_finite_groups">How to solve problems about finite groups</a>. But when I click on <em>View articles linking here</em>, I only see <a href="/article/Group_theory_front_page">Group theory front page</a> (which also links there).</p>http://www.tricki.org/node/349#commentsBug reportsSun, 03 May 2009 13:58:52 +0000wilton349 at http://www.tricki.orgRedirecting
http://www.tricki.org/node/328
<p>I don't know whether this is a bug or whether it's me, but I've just tried to get rid of a redirect symbol by changing the wording of the link, and the redirect symbol is still there. The link in question is on the page <a href="/article/I_have_a_problem_about_an_infinite_sum">I have a problem about an infinite sum</a>. If you click on "I want to calculate an infinite sum" you will find the link with the redirect symbol, which seems to give exactly the title of the article it links to (which I changed from an earlier title).</p>http://www.tricki.org/node/328#commentsBug reportsTue, 28 Apr 2009 12:40:17 +0000gowers328 at http://www.tricki.orgLaTeX inside references
http://www.tricki.org/node/318
<p>In the article <a href="/article/Dont_start_from_scratch">Don't start from scratch</a>, the following html code is not working properly:</p>
<p>([)ref Example #invertible_matrices: the set of invertible <span style="vertical-align: 0px;"><img class="inline_tex" src="/images/tex/607acaa73c762411b20745149a11e90b.png" alt="n\times n" /></span> matrices is open]</p>
<p>(you can see the result at the article page)</p>
<p>After giving it a couple of tries, it seems like the LaTeX formula inside the refrence (or at the example title) is the problem.</p>http://www.tricki.org/node/318#commentsBug reportsMon, 27 Apr 2009 13:54:50 +0000JoseBrox318 at http://www.tricki.orgInternal links to headings
http://www.tricki.org/node/301
<p>I've tried to do this in the <a href="/article/Group_theory_front_page">Group theory front page</a> but I can't get it to work. I <em>think</em> that this is a bug rather than my stupidity, because I copied into the Sandbox exactly what it suggests in the formatting page, and I have the same problem: it treats what I write as a link to a nonexistent page.</p>http://www.tricki.org/node/301#commentsBug reportsSat, 25 Apr 2009 00:09:51 +0000gowers301 at http://www.tricki.orgUser home pages
http://www.tricki.org/node/300
<p>I've noticed that a number of users give links to their home pages or blogs, and when you click on them you get a page saying "This page does not exist on the Tricki." I haven't been able to guess why this is, or why it happens to some people and not others. But it would be nice if something could be done about it.</p>http://www.tricki.org/node/300#commentsBug reportsFri, 24 Apr 2009 23:52:14 +0000gowers300 at http://www.tricki.orgEditing Preview and Log comments
http://www.tricki.org/node/290
<p>When you edit an article, you have the option to write a Log comment to clarify what you have done. If you write one and then preview the result, the comment dissapears in the result page (so you have to write it again or go back to your first editing page).</p>http://www.tricki.org/node/290#commentsBug reportsFri, 24 Apr 2009 15:43:46 +0000JoseBrox290 at http://www.tricki.org
