Text filtering is useful if you want to restrict authors from inserting tags or harmful HTML code into your articles that might cause errors to your site.

In previous version – here) but 2.5, text filtering has moved to the Global Configuration.1.7, this option was found in the Article Manager – Options (You can see the post
See below how to turn off Text Filtering:
1. Login to your Joomla 2.5 Administrator backend
2. Click on Site, Global Configuration
3. Switch to the ‘Text Filters” tab
4. Under ‘Text Filter Settings’, ‘Filter Groups’, set the following:
- Super Users = No Filtering
5. Click on ‘Save & Close’
Now you can try to add HTML and IFRAME code into your Joomla 2.5 articles and should not be stripping your code. If you are still having problems, you can try the following:
6. Go back into the ‘Text Filters’ tab and under ‘Filter Groups’, set:
- Super Users = Default Black List
7. Click on ‘Save & Close’
8.Then repeat Step 4 and 5 above.
Updated from William’s Comment (Thanks William):
9. TinyMCE is default editor. It also strips the iframe.
GO – Extensions -> Plug In Manager -> Editor – TinyMCE
Basic Options -> Prohibited Elements
remove iframe from the list
Hope that helps you.
