Make mathjax work in abstracts of questions

    I activated mathjax for questions and answers by adding the following lines to the Scripts HTML Section in the Admin Panel:

    <script type="text/x-mathjax-config">
        tex2jax: {
          inlineMath: [ ['$','$'], ["\\(","\\)"] ],
          processEscapes: true
    <script type="text/javascript" async
    talkyard.postElemPostProcessor = function(elem) {
      console.log('Telling MathJax to post process elem: ' + elem);
      MathJax.Hub.Queue(["Typeset", MathJax.Hub, elem]);

    However this doesn't seem to work for the abstracts of the questions in the overview list. So how can I make it work there as well?

    1. the abstracts of the questions in the overview list

      That's the forum topic list / question list? In this forum, it'd be this page?:

      This has not yet been implemented, actually. Right now, the text on those question-overview / forum-topics pages, are just plain text.

          I noticed that it works if I reload the topic/question list in my browser.
