    I have MathJax up and working by:
    1) Putting this script into the 'page_container_js_head' template:
    <script type="text/javascript"
    2) Adding a custom BBcode using these values:

    It does work, however, each time I use the math tags, it puts everything else on a new line:

    I want to allow it is be in the middle of a sentence, as shown here:

    What is the best way of going about this? Thanks.

    It would likely require changing it from a div to a span, if possible.

    Would this be done in the HTML replacement? At the moment my HTML replacement doesn't have any HTML in it.

    Thanks. Is it possible to implement the tex2jax using the CDN, or does MathJax have to be installed on the server to use it? I can't quite tell after reading around there. If you know how to implement it with the CDN, please let me know. Thanks again.

    I'm sorry, I do not know.

    I found a solution. Simply add this to the page_container_js_head template and it will work like a charm:
    <script type="text/x-mathjax-config">
        extensions: ["tex2jax.js"],
        jax: ["input/TeX", "output/HTML-CSS"],
        tex2jax: {
          inlineMath: [ ['$$','$$'], ["\\(","\\)"] ],
          displayMath: [ ['$$$','$$$'], ["\\[","\\]"] ],
          processEscapes: true
        "HTML-CSS": { availableFonts: ["TeX"] }
    <script src='https://cdn.mathjax.org/mathjax/latest/MathJax.js?config=TeX-AMS-MML_HTMLorMML'></script>
