Hi all. I appologize as I am sure this has already been asked. I am new to the math help forum but I am fluent in LaTex. How do compile code so that it displays in my posts?

Any and all help is appreciated.

Here is an example:

[tex]\sum\limits_{k = 1}^\infty {\frac{{\cos \left( {\pi k} \right)}}{{k^2 }}} [/tex] gives $\displaystyle \sum\limits_{k = 1}^\infty {\frac{{\cos \left( {\pi k} \right)}}{{k^2 }}} $

The $\displaystyle \Sigma$ on the toolbar is a shortcut to [tex] [/tex] brackets.
