Make mathjax work in abstracts of questions

By Michael S @michaelS2020-03-14 18:04:14.027Z2020-03-14 22:55:35.276Z

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?

    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.
