This question already has an answer here:

I am trying to use strikethrough on one of my other Stack Exchange questions. (Now updated with working strikethrough) I have tried the following:

  • ~~Double tildes~~
  • ~Single tildes~
  • [strike]Strike[/strike]
  • [del]Del[/del]
  • [s]S[/s]

None of these work. I know there is a way because I've seen it before on Stack Exchange.

Like this

<s> Some random text </s>

<del> Some random text </del>

  • @Peanut No, they don't work in the comments. – Dawny33 Apr 25 '16 at 1:00
  • Thanks for the help, too. Turns out I was using [] instead of <>. – haykam Apr 25 '16 at 1:06

    Also, <strike> Some random text </strike> works too. – haykam Apr 25 '16 at 1:07
  • @haykam <s>Strikethrough text</s> ­ ­­ ­ --> S̶t̶r̶i̶k̶e̶t̶h̶r̶o̶u̶g̶h̶ ̶t̶e̶x̶t̶ works for me! – John Militer May 30 '17 at 3:23
