    Well on this site you would write [ s] hhh [ /s] . Without any spaces. ie [s] rather than [ s ].

    So if I do that it should work like this hhh

    I did try to find a tutorial on this site (because I don't think all sites accept the same code) but couldn't find one and in the end I had to google "strikethrough code tutorial" (or something similar).

    I learned html originally and so this code is strange for me and the "tags" are all different and my skills are superannuated

    Here it is [s]hhh[ /s]
    but I have included a space just before the"/" in [s] so as to disable the code and allow you to see it

    If i write the code correctly it will disappear and so you have to do it yourself and remember not to leave any spaces. It is [s] ,followed by any text and finally [/ s] (remember no spaces)

    The general principle is that you "sandwich" (or "bookend" ) the text (hhh in this case) between an opening tag and a closing tag

    The "s" is understood on this website to stand for "strikethrough". If you were to replace the "s" with some other valid character it would probably change (format) the text in a different way.

    It is like a language for building websites.

    Did that explain it OK?

    If you right click on this page and select "view page source" (chrome) you can see all the "scaffolding" behind the scenes of the visible page. The overall code is html but I think what we used was something different and I don't know what it is called.

    HTML uses <.....> </ ....> instead of [....] [/....] (what we used)

    It's called BBCode. There's a wiki on it.

    Thanks . I wonder why they don't use html .It doesn't seem any simpler . Is it so as to stop people messing with the site as ,if html was accepted it could be more open to abuse
    and tampering with the basic setup of the site.

    One would likely use SQL to "hack" the board.

    You can also use tags to do this:
