wiki markup : how to make text to appear as deleted when it is an URL ?

In a comment, I'm trying to make the text http://bla.bla to appear as deleted with -http://bla.bla- but it doesn't seems to work ?

-deleted- Makes text as <del>deleted</del>.

-http://bla.bla- Makes text as -http://bla.bla- (which is not expected).

Thanks !

Try this:

This is a deleted link: -[http://jira.atlassian.com]-

The reason why you need to add [ and ] around your url is that the trailing minus sign is considered to be a part of the url (it's a valid character for an url), so wiki sees your text as "-URL" and not "-URL-" and that's why it doesn't properly strike it out.

I'm afraid the question does not make much sense. "makes the text xxx as deleted" is not at all clear. What do you mean by "deleted", and what are you trying to do with the url?

Mmm, if you're goint to edit the question, then it's worth commenting to tell us you've done it, and explain why answers and comments suddenly don't make sense.

You do not mean "deleted", you mean "struck out" and all you need to do to format your text is click the "help" link underneath the text box to find out how to use the markup.

Sometimes though, if you add and delete spaces and other text, Jira can get confused and not save quite what you expect (which then messes up the formatting). Try removing and then re-typing or re-pasting the raw text. If that doesn't help, then try putting spaces in between the url and the - signs

Nic, I don't have the required karma to comment. Hope you'll understand. Please accept my apologies.

No problem, but you just managed to comment!

Did you have any luck with the initial test I tried to write up?

@ Nic, i think he is speaking about "wiki markup"
