    Thanks for your reply and the link. I have since found out what I was doing wrong, but for the benefit of anyone else that comes here, the thing that hadn't been made clear in most of the references I was looking at is that the math code is typed directly into the main work area and is only distinguished from regular text by placing it between "math" tags such as math code goes here math. I had bee under the impression that it went into a widget of some kind and most references I found didn't address that, or the math tags for that matter.
    The link above, however, covers all of the basics. (I wish I had been able to find that page earlier!)
    Thanks again afwings!

    One thing to keep in mind is that their implementation does not allow inl​ine equations; everything is a display equation. If you absolutely have to have an inline equation, you can do it by putting your text + equation all into LaTeX markup.
    Ok, so here's where MathType comes in...
    ...
    equation in MathType,MathType. In the Cut and Copy Preferences dialog (found in the Preferences menu), you choose athe Wikispaces translator from Preferences/Translators (making sure the 2 boxes at the bottom of the Translators dialog are unchecked), copydropdown box. Create the equation in MathTypeMathType, then copy it and paste it into Wikpspaces. Trouble is, allWikispaces. You don't need to worry about adding the LaTeX translatorsmath tags as described above, and you don't need to worry about deleting any delimiters as mentioned in the previous paragraph. MathType include other delimiters of some sort: \\[...\\]
    ...
    , $...$, <math>...</math>, etc. You'll have to delete these. You
    does it all for you. And just like with earlier versions, you can use either the visual editorcopy & paste or drag & drop from Wikispaces TO MathType as well. There are more detailed instructions about Using MathType with Wikispaces on the text editor,MathType website. Important: The article explains this, but you'll have to includeit's important that you always paste the math tags manually.equation into a new line, as you can see above. Wikispaces does not allow inline equations.
    Another cool thing about the LaTeX equations in Wikispaces -- they're displayed as GIFs, but they have LaTeX alt text. This allows a MathType user to either copy & paste or drag & drop the equation into MathType. Then it becomes a MathType equation, and you can edit it or use it just like any other MathType equation.
    Update -- Using MathType 6.6 and later with the Wikispaces translator
    MathType 6.6 for Windows has a LaTeX translator created especially for Wikispaces. In the Cut and Copy Preferences dialog (found in the Preferences menu), you choose the Wikispaces translator from the dropdown box. Create the equation in MathType, then copy it and paste it into Wikispaces. You don't need to worry about adding the math tags as described above, and you don't need to worry about deleting any delimiters as mentioned in the previous paragraph. MathType does it all for you.

    Sorry for the delay; I've been out of the office since 11 July and only just returned today.
    Perhaps I don't understand your question. You paste the code directly into the text you're writing. Our article on <b>Using MathType with Wikispaces</b> may be helpful.

    Hi! Could you clarify one detail - where does the code go in order for it to be rendered? I am including the math tags but none of the wigits I paste the code into are rendering it.
    Thanks!

    Elluminate
    Sas.Elluminate.com is an online conferencing service. An online conference is an effective way for a group of people at distant locations to have a meeting. Mathematicians and teachers, like everyone else, need to collaborate to advance their craft. Elluminate needs Internet ports that may be blocked by a campus firewall or Internet proxy. The service is used to host online academic conferences, e.g. a weekly conference about mathematics on the web.
    Friendster.com
    Friendster.com contains many school or subject based discussion groups, e.g. "ELITE MATH CIRCLE", where students discuss and solve math problems. The service does not have effective spam filtering.

    ftp and sftp Protocols
    ftp is a traditional method of transferring or sharing files. sftp is the secure version of the protocol. Both are commonly blocked. Many file hosting sites offer http and https as alternative protocols for download files.
