# Mathjax not working for me in chat

I've been in the chat "h-bar" physics stackexchange chat, and somebody wrote $\frac{1}{2}$ and it comes up for me like those literal characters and not as $\frac{1}{2}$

Any idea why / how I can enable mathjax in chat?

The guy that posted it said he can see it and thought it might be an issue on my end.

I don't know if it's a bug of some sort, or perhaps i'm just missing an option.

• You need a client-side extension for visualizing MathJax text. See this meta post. – Jaime Gallego Apr 12 '17 at 13:56

but the short of it is that to turn on ChatJax, you can just drag-and-drop the link marked start ChatJax in this page up to your bookmarks bar, and then click the resulting bookmarklet to turn on mathjax in chat.
