N.B: If you click on one of the images, it will pop up in a larger zoomed in display for you.

The Fix strike wizard provides you with "strike" errors for the course and updates the formatting of striked through text into the correct HTML tag, as it changes the <strike> tag to a <del> tag to help fix them quickly. The <strike> element is deprecated and should not be used. It provides no text meaning for non-sighted readers. Use the <del> (deleted text) tag instead. The existing strike tag errors are listed with a “Submit Bulk Fixing” button, which will then update all the strike tag errors on that current page.

All fixes applied through this wizard can be reverted with the Bulk fix log. All errors hidden through this wizard are located in Exception Management.
