The 'Strike Through' Answer

Please note: This is copied off the web and not my explanation... (don't want to get in trouble you know)

Using strikethrough font in blogger is overrated and entails an extremely convoluted process helpful and very easy to implement. It uses a simple html tag, which is just code that tells your editor how to display certain things. Html tags have to be opened and closed. Tags are opened by putting a greater than sign (<), then the tag content, followed by a lesser than sign (>). They are closed by doing the same process except with a backslash (/) before the tag content.

To strike through a word, make sure you are on the "edit html" tab and then surround the word you wish to strike through with an "s" tag.

Substituting the "s" in these examples will perform various functions. For example, "b" for bold; "i" for italics; etc. Strikethrough will work for posts, but not for comments in blogger.

Now that you know how to strike through words, your posts will look pretty much the same as before certainly look innovative and creative.


  1. I always mean to try this, do a little strike through dance and then I never feel like I have the time to click on this, do that, close those, go there, do that, just to make my writing look like a rough draft.

    But I keep meaning to try it especially when someone talks about it.

    Your look is a little different eh? I usually just catch up in my reader but I thought I'd pop over with my ever so clever comment and I noticed you look different.

  2. well, that was informative... I might have to bookmark this post so that I can come back to it when I want to do such a thing...

    And- not to be OCD or anything- but I think you've got your terms switched around... less than (<) and greater than (>)... not that I care... not that it matters... ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
