Strike through option on text

Strike through option on text

Not the biggest of ideas but a needed one I feel. There used to be a strike through option on text which seems to have disappeared a while ago and subsequent lithium releases don't seem to have corrected this (so it doesn't seem to be a bug as such).

 

Problem

When you have made a mistake in a reply and want to correct it so as not to cause confusion, the only options now are to delete the reply or change it (which can be misinterpreted as trying to cover up a mistake).

 

Solution

The strike through option is a useful way to show the previous answer has been corrected and allow the correct information to be given.   It should be easy to get it back as it used to be an option.

 

Example:

You get 350 inclusive mins on the £10 goodybag

 

Edited to this:

You get 350 inclusive mins on the £10 goodybag

Correction: that's 250 inclusive mins on the £10 goodybag.

 

PS.  I had to use HTML to get the strike through on this (all credit to stephenmiller on showing me how Smiley Happy)

You can do it with HTML, so if you really needed to to it just use HTML.

 

It might be easier to have it on the RTF box though Smiley Wink

Yeh I miss the strikethrough button!

 

In the meantime, maybe we could use the asterisk (*) when we go back to edit our replies.

 

Eg.  You get 350* minutes in the £10 goodybag

 

 

*edit: you actually get 250 minutes
