Applying strikeout to text in a post

I recently tried to help somebody out on the forum and some of the information I posted was incorrect. Is there a way of applying a strikeout to the incorrect text or otherwise somehow marking it as such?

Applying strikeout to text in a post is as easy as adding HTML <strike>
tag to the text you want to strikeout.

Thanks Chris. I was looking at the menu icons whilst editing the post but couldn't see anything.

I wonder if there are any more "hidden" formatting options as it were?

@ninora , so we can insert HTML into our text as another option?

Or use ~~ ~~

The Arduino forum now supports three different markup languages:

So there are multiple ways to accomplish most formatting goals.

My preference is to use Markdown because it is the most straightforward and, due to being one of the most popular markup languages, a familiarity with Markdown is also beneficial at many other times.

I tried it here for the first time and it worked so I guess you can add

some tags

while other are filtered out

You can avoid the ; termination from style string for do that.

BLOODY
<span style="background-color:red">BLOODY</span>

Cool :slight_smile:
