  2. If you need a WordPress instance for a CSE research group or project, please ask your faculty advisor to request it by writing to cse-consult@buffalo.edu. Please include:
    1. The SITENAME that you would like encoded in your WordPress URL:

    2. Your desired site title:

    3. Whether the default user role should be 'subscriber' or 'contributor'.
  3. How to integrate LaTeX code in your document:
    
    Enter your LaTeX code inside of a [latex]...[/latex] shortcode.
    
    [latex]e^{\i \pi} + 1 = 0[/latex]
    
    You may alternatively use the following equivalent syntax reminiscent of LaTeX's inline
    math mode syntax.
    
    $latex e^{\i \pi} + 1 = 0$
