For those who land here for wanting exactly the same thing as above:
I found now use a workaround for getting the mathematical equations / symbols in the questions / articles. Use unicode.
Well, since Voomly does not support something like a Mathjax, the next best thing is to use unicode symbols to get _nearly_ what we would want. For this, I use emacs as an editor in the tex-input-mode, and type in latex form to get the unicode symbols, and then just copy-paste that in my articles.
For those who use google chrome (or Microsoft edge), I found this extension that you can use to directly to input latex and get unicode in your text-fields: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/tex-to-unicode/kdojinhjlhbmmbfogccabogomjpjijif
Finally, for those who do not have emacs, or do not want to install anything for this, I found this: https://www.unicodeit.net/ - it does exactly what I meant, directly in your browser.
For example, here's something that you can do with any of the above:
(a + b)² = a² + b² + 2ab (Superscripts)
r = √(2π)/a (Mathematical symbols such as √, ∑, ∈, etc.)
(α + β)² = α² + β² + 2αβ (Greek alphabets)
...
THe way you do this is by using simple symbols:
\alpha -> α
\beta -> β
...
\surd -> √
\in -> ∈
\sum -> ∑
...
For a good list of these symbols, see here: https://golopot.github.io/tex-to-unicode/
Hope this helps somebody out there...
