# What features should we add to this site?

 9 I think William had already mentioned this, but adding support for jsMath / MathJax would be great. edit (by evgeny): this page has instructions on enabling MathJax http://askbot.org/doc/mathjax.html, please take a look if you want to use math rendering on this site. posted Aug 19 '10 Mike Hansen 3840 ● 21 ● 46 ● 84 Evgeny 51 ● 1 ● 4 ● 11 hopefully I'll get to this issue tomorrow. MathJax? Evgeny (Aug 21 '10)1 Yes, MathJax is the way of the future: http://www.mathjax.org/ (it's the successor to jsmath, written by the jsmath author) Jason Grout (Aug 25 '10) Evgeny: Can we currently subscript or superscript anything? Just curious before the math markup gets added. ccanonc (Aug 27 '10) This feature can be enabled on this site - here is the manual: http://askbot.org/doc/mathjax.htmlEvgeny (Sep 01 '10)
 4 The markdown tips show up when composing a new question, but not when composing an answer--that would be useful. Along these lines, showing a list of all tags when composing a question could be inspirational when trying to think of good tags for the question. posted Aug 21 '10 niles 3605 ● 7 ● 45 ● 101 http://nilesjohnson.net/
 3 I'm not sure if it's possible with Markdown, but it would be useful to have syntax highlighting for code blocks. Pygments appears to be the best choice for server-side highlighting in Python applications. Or would this be better to do here in the client? posted Aug 22 '10 Mitesh Patel 253 ● 3 ● 9 http://alexgorbatchev.com/SyntaxHighlighter/manual/brushes/python.html or http://shjs.sourceforge.net/ Either would work IMHO. ccanonc (Aug 26 '10) this is fixed now Evgeny (Oct 14 '10) Thanks! Thanks! Mitesh Patel (Oct 16 '10)
 2 It would be nice if the profile page informed me of my daily quotas (voting/___ thresholds): both the threshold, and the amount left for the day. :-) My votes for today are consumed (I saw via the red pop-up). posted Aug 19 '10 ccanonc 487 ● 5 ● 18 ● 34 It would be nice if the vote-takeback-timeout/threshold could be increased. Sometimes I vote poorly, and want to revise my votes from a day before. Maybe a week would be a reasonable minimum threshold? Longer perhaps for those with higher Karma? Ex:Mike Hanson gives >> better Ans&Votes than me. =) ccanonc (Aug 27 '10) looks like it might be a configurable option in the settings, I've added it to the bugtracker. Evgeny (Aug 30 '10)
 2 On sage-support, Karl mentioned the similar website mapleprimes. One thing I like there is that they have "posts" in addition to "questions": MaplePrimes Posts are for sharing your experiences, techniques and opinions about Maple, MapleSim and related products, as well as general interests in math and computing. Of course one can write a question and then give the post as its answer, but that seems a little silly (unless it's not possible to set up posts, in which case I'd be in favor of a FAQ item recommending precisely this strategy :). posted Aug 20 '10 niles 3605 ● 7 ● 45 ● 101 http://nilesjohnson.net/
 2 There is no "flag offensive" button for comments, only for answers and questions. posted Aug 21 '10 ccanonc 487 ● 5 ● 18 ● 34 Also, there is no undelete function for comments, you have to remember what you typed previously. ccanonc (Aug 21 '10)
 2 Would it be possible to include optionally the entire (unformatted) content of new questions, answers, and comments in the subscription emails? And possibly for updates, the before and after versions or a simple diff of the changes? edit: this should be working now, edited in the post so that you could see whether the feature works for you or not. posted Oct 22 '10 Mitesh Patel 253 ● 3 ● 9 Evgeny 51 ● 1 ● 4 ● 11 the entire content is already there (I need to update asksage though), the diffs is an interesting idea will get it done too. Evgeny (Oct 22 '10) It works. Thanks! Mitesh Patel (Oct 27 '10)
 2 This is really minor, but it would be convenient if the subscriptions email headers had a "from" entry to make email filtering a bit easier. posted Nov 23 '10 rickhg12hs 104 ● 1 ● 8 I totally agree! niles (Nov 24 '10) Sorry for ignoring this. What email address can be used? Is there some official "from" email in the sagemath project? Evgeny (Nov 29 '10) I don't know of any official address; something like "Ask Sage " would probably suit our needs best; at least until someone else has a better idea niles (Nov 30 '10)
 1 When the red envelope icon indicates I have new messages/comments, and I click on it (navigate to that page); if I then click on a message, the page it takes me to does not auto-scroll to where that new comment/update actually is. It would be awesome if you had html anchors that allowed you to auto-scroll (and permalink for that matter). Whether implemented in ECMAScript/Javascript or in the GET request (URL), hey whatever scrolls me there would rule. posted Aug 19 '10 ccanonc 487 ● 5 ● 18 ● 34 it actually does autoscroll, but does not work yet when the answer or comment is not on the first page... I've noticed this issue too. Evgeny (Aug 19 '10)
