How to Cross Out Text on DeviantART

Save

DeviantART is an online forum for artists and art enthusiasts. You can communicate with other members of DeviantART through a variety of mediums, including comments, private messages, and public journals, and these mediums support the use of HTML code to allow you to enhance the appearance of your text. Text cross-outs, or "strikes," are text enhancements that draw a line through the selected text, though strikes are only available in user journal posts.

Things You'll Need

  • DeviantART user account

Instructions

  • Navigate your Internet browser to the DeviantART home page. Click your user account name in the DeviantART page bar at the top of your Internet browser window, and your Internet browser will navigate to your DeviantART user account home page. If you are not logged into DeviantART, move your mouse cursor over the "Deviant Login" link in the DeviantART page bar at the top of your Internet browser, enter your DeviantART user account name and account password in the text fields that appear, and click the "Login" button.

  • Click the "Write a Journal" button in the journal section of your DeviantART user account home page. Type a statement you would like to affect with the strike effect in the "New Journal Post" text entry window.

  • Place your text cursor before the first letter of the statement to be affected by the strike effect, either by clicking the space before the statement with your mouse cursor or by moving the text cursor with the arrow keys on your keyboard. Type "<strike>" or "<s>" before the first letter of the statement. The journal text should appear as "<strike>Statement to be Affected."

  • Place your text cursor in the space after the last letter of the statement to be affected by the strike effect, either by clicking the space after the statement with your mouse cursor or by moving the text cursor with the arrow keys on your keyboard. Type "</strike>" or "</s>" after the last letter of the statement. The journal text should appear as "<strike>Statement to be Affected</strike>."

  • Click the "Preview" button at the bottom of the journal post entry page, and a preview of the journal entry will appear in a new Internet browser window. The text affected by the "<strike>" or "<s>" tags will be crossed out. Close the preview window of your Internet browser, and click the "Publish Entry" button at the bottom of the journal post entry page. The journal post will be published on your DeviantART user account home page.
