If you’re new to the WordPress visual editor, you might be looking up online how to do certain functions.

We’ve seen this question asked a few times: how do you strikethrough text in the WordPress visual editor?

How to Strikethrough Text in WordPress (example!)

There are two ways:

  1. Click the ABC button which is next to the B and I buttons in the top left corner; or
  2. Press shift + Alt and the “d” key at the same time.

You should do this once to turn on the strikethrough and then again to turn it off. Alternatively, just write your whole section of text, then highlight the bit you want to sort of erase but leave visible, like this unneccessary bit of text, and press the button or the hotkeys while the text is highlighted.

The strikethrough will apply on a space, too, so often double-clicking the mouse to highlight will grab the space after a word. Get around this by dragging instead of double clicking.

I sometimes often use strikethroughs as a device.
