Configure Joomla! Article filters
By default Joomla! 'cleans' content on saving, removing script tags, event attributes (such as onclick, onmouseover etc.) and style tags.
A simple article parameter change is all that is required to fix this.
Joomla! 2.5 and Joomla! 3
- In the Joomla! Global Configuration, click on the Text Filters tab.
- For the Super Users group, or any other trusted user group, set Filter Type to No Filtering. Make sure that you only set this option for user groups that can be trusted as setting the Filter Type to No Filtering will essentially allow the user to include any html in an article.
Alternatively, in Joomla 3 and Joomla 4, set the Filter Type to Custom Blacklist, and add an edited list of the default Blacklist tags to the Filter Tags field, with iframe removed, eg:
RSFirewall scambles tags
