    I see people putting text with a line through it, like a strikethrough. How do I do that? I want to edit my post but leave the original text there, but struck through.

    Use the < s>< /s> commands around the word, like <s>this</s>, removing the spaces, naturally

    There are a few of the newer forums, racing, battle scooters and ADV rallies where the HTML code is turtned off; so you can't <s>strike through those. :scratch</s>

    This will sound obvious, but quote something to see how the HTML treats that function.

    Right?

    Hey Baldy, you know that HTML is off in PMs as well, right? I thought it was a PM vs. Forum thing but since it's just a toggle :dunno

    That one is "strongly not recommended" by the makers of vBulletin because it would make it real easy for someone to put in malicious code to hack the server or other things.

    Ahh yes...the old 'strikeout' server hack...I'm very familiar with that one :scratch




















    :D Nah, I understand what you mean. I guess I'm surprised that as a mod (even the uber mod) that you know so much about the policies and vulnerablilities of the software running this place.

    Heck, I didn't even know the name of the software until geode's post yesterday about them pulling another site's license.

    <strike>change mode from rich text to html using this [​IMG] button at your top right.</strike> You can do this in either mode.

    enter less-than "strike" greater-than #text# less-than forward-slash "strike" greater-than

    not like this, like <strike>this


    </strike>"<"strike">"this"<"/"strike">"
    remove the quotation marks.
