# Help:Latex

This wiki previously had the DollarSign extension installed, which allowed for math to be enclosed between "$" instead of the usual $...$. To get a "$" we instead used "\$". This caused problems with the search results page: at the top, the "you searched for..." notification was garbled because somehow (perhaps a double quote instead of a single quote in the wiki code) the notification was displaying math mode. This was fixed by searching for the notification in Special:AllMessages and adding "\" in front of all "$".
