How can I write striked text?

Hi everybody,

the menu above the texteditor has no option to strike text.

But I have seen it from time to time in postings so there must be a "command" like

[ code ] [ \ code ] that does the trick.

what is this command?

best regards Stefan

~~ text ~~
with no white space.

is there a variant for striking a complete paragraph that has spaces ?

my
paragraph
with spaces

here it works but in my posting where I want to use it it does not work
Don't know what a "normal" space and a "white" space is

best regards Stefan

It works for Paragraphs:

~~It was July 21, 1969, and Neil Armstrong awoke with a start. It was the day he would become the first human being to ever walk on the moon. The journey had begun several days earlier, when on July 16th, the Apollo 11 launched from Earth headed into outer space. On board with Neil Armstrong were Michael Collins and Buzz Aldrin. The crew landed on the moon in the Sea of Tranquility a day before the actual walk. Upon Neil’s first step onto the moon’s surface, he declared, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” It sure was!~~

Hi frontman,

ah ! the secret is to have no space between the two tilde-symbols and the text
