Math plugin/macro for confluence ondemand?

Hi,

Is there any option to support writing math formula in Page of Confluence Ondemand environment?

Looks like bundled plugin doesn't include math support, no user macro allowed which get me in stuck...

I really need it to use Confluence for software docmentation which need to describe mathematical algorithm behind the program behavior...

Thanks!

Hi,

I'm having the same problem. I'm using confluence-ondemand for documentation. Unfortunately some formulas should be included in my documentation and i didn't find a way to do it properly. Can anybody help me with this issue?

In my opinion a math-formula plugin/macro is essential.

Thanks

with agreement with Michael's opinion, I mark this as an Answer.

I also think math formula is basic feature.

OnDemand doesn't allow plugins. You will have to go for downloaded version. See https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/AOD/Atlassian+OnDemand+Plugin+Policy

I know plugins are not allowed. Is there any option other than plugin?

Hello!

For any calculations in Confluence, including any manipulations with table data, you may use CelesteCS Math for Confluence.

Assume you have a table with three columns and three rows on your page – from A1 till C3, where row 1 is the header row. The sum calculation formula for rows 2 and 3 will be simple:

SUM(Table1.A2:C3)

There is a plenty of other functions in the macro, so you may perform any calculations using formulas in EXCEL style.

Cloud version of this plugin is on the way!

Thanks!
