Thank you for the LaTex samples. I can not for the love of money display a simple product, for example, of n primes each labed p subscript i. I have been trying variations of the following without success: $\p_1p_2\dotsm$
The dotsm work,but not the letters p nor variables such as x or y. I do not know if the problem is 1.)me 2.)wordpress 3.)other.

Hi Edward,

I know how frustrating it can be to track something down. I made two changes: drop the backslash in front of p1, put a space after the 1.

I expect that this code will not work in a comment, but I have checked it. Perhaps more importantly, this is a copy-and-paste of what worked for me.

$p_1 p_2\dotsm$
