# Make the Codeblock detection less aggressive

In this question Small Bayes Calculator to learn Javascript I ended up adding a maths appendix with a bunch of LaTeX. This LaTeX was detected as "code" and I was supposed to indent it by 4 spaces otherwise it would not let me post it. Indenting it would have prevented it from rendering the equations though, so I worked around this issue by making a picture of the perfectly fine preview and added this at the end instead of the LaTeX formulas.

The codeblock detection algorithm should either be taught LaTeX or be possible to override.

EDIT: still does not work

The codeblock detection that you ran into has been active on Code Review since 2011. If the documentation for that particular check is still up to date, the following restrictions apply:

This check is limited to users with <= 50 reputation and is performed on questions / answers / edits and suggested edits.

Since you have earned an association bonus and were caught either way, I presume the check does not include association bonus rep in the threshold calculation.

If you attempt to submit the same LaTeX (note that codereview has a special delimiter for it), it should work now.

• so instead of  I should use...? Jan 22 at 21:12
• Perhaps the check is gained over 50 reputation, as both 151 and 51 don't allow Felix to post the MathJax. Or mutated to something else later.

• @FelixB. if the LaTeX renders, it's the correct delimiters. I think for inline latex CodeReview has $ instead of  Jan 23 at 10:43 • @Vogel612 ah, that is why the inline tex did not work (I just worked around that) Jan 23 at 10:44 • I tried to add $ to the one inline formula I kept (in plain text) and I still can not submit this edit. So it is not like the reputation check is only updated every day or something. Jan 23 at 10:53
