How can i add strikethrough text to the body of my text block?

Question

I've tried using the < del>< /del> html tag, but is there something special I need to do with Markdown in order to get the text strikethrough to appear in my text block?

Hi, just to confirm for people that find this question like I did, strikethrough does work in Markdown blocks on Squarespace (and FYI the red colour in this example is not the default styling) so you don't have to use a code block, but it definitely won't work in a standard text block (hint hint Squarespace, are you reading this?)

Hi there,

Unfortunately, a text block doesn't allow you to write html code. You would have to add a 'Code Block' and place your text there with the relevant html code.

Hope this makes sense. (:

Hi Vinko, you cannot use a standard text block, it must be markdown or a code block. The synatx is < del > and < / del >. Please remove the spaces inside the chevrons, I added these so that the synatx would show in this comment.

Hi Andrew, will using a standard Text block achieve this strikethrough or does it have to be a Markdown block? If it is a Markdown block what is the exact syntax?

Thank you in advance.

Why isn't strikethrough offered in basic text format? Seriously, this is kindergarten stuff!

I pay extra money for additional pages. But those pages are no good to me if I can't design/write them as required.

Yeah, and don't give me some labyrinth to walk through. Strikethrough is fundamental to Word and blog programs. It should be with SquareSpace, too!
