    Does Talkyard support ~~ strikethrough ~~? It doesn't seem to work with ~~: strikethrough

    1. You can do: <strike>oops I typed a typo</strike>

      oops I typed a typo

      Talkyard uses Markdown-it & CommonMark which I think require a plugin for ~~ to work.
      (Not sure if it's a good idea to add a plugin for ~~ — I think most people don't know what ~~ means, and that <strike> is simpler for people to read. Also, there're "100 other plugins" with different syntax & magic tokens, don't know if maybe maybe in the future it'd turn out that ~~ will be better to use for something else)

              I'll put in a small vote in favor for ~~ support. Most Markdown renders I'm familiar with (e.g., Goldmark, Github) treat it as strikethrough, and I had to Google how to format strikethrough text in TalkYard.

              Not an urgent or strong need, since there's a simple workaround with <strike>.

              1. Ok, marking as Planned, now seems like a good idea (when "many" people run into this)
