    I noticed that there are a few posts with the text run thru with a line (teacher style). This is all I get: _____------Aaaaaahh

    I looked in th FAQ and can't find any details on how to do this.

    AH, I got it!! --> > ]zzzzzzzz[ (I had it but editing it kept it from working), I wonder why it says "Wrap tags around text" of the lined thru S (S)??

    EDIT: I think this is a good feature for rhetorical purposes (saying it without "saying" it).

    You can try it like this click on the s with a line through it and type your text in between these > ] [ <

    [bounce] YEP YOU GOT IT [/bounce]
    If it worked the way you were doing it then by all means do it that way.

    I wonder what went wrong with my post which showed the procedure working fine yesterday?? (Editing a post seems to cause trouble when dealing with special features).

    I just wanted to say thanks

    This is the link to the forum coding.
    Check "strike out" If coding correct, editing should have no effect
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/misc.php?do=bbcode#s

    Code:
    [S]If coding correct, editing should have no effect.[/S]

    I have received email with some words striked out. How do you do this? Is there a word processor option?

    Hi Dave,

    What do you mean?
    The HTML tag would be <strike></strike>.

    Some E-mail clients support the feature through the "font options" panel.
    Thunderbird, for example, also allows the user to add his own HTML tags.
