XF 1.4 Custom BBCode

Trying to implement MathJax. I've added the code to the page_container_js_head template, but I now have absolutely no idea what I'm doing :)

How do I setup a custom BBcode? Baring in mind I have little/no code knowledge. I see the option under BB codes & smilies, but the setup page means nothing to me. What do I put in what boxes? :(

Would any fine chap be able to post an example screenshot or something with an explanation of what each box means? I'm learning as I'm going.

Looking at how MathJax works, it looks like it doesn't really detect tags -- it detects TeX or AsciiMath which are just embedded inline. As such, you wouldn't need a custom BB code; you'd just need to include MathJax with the correct configuration (to enable TeX/AsciiMath) and it should be parsing the math automatically.
