Using, I was trying to add iframe code into my article and was having problems the other day. I was able to do this perfectly in and now is stripping the code. Why can’t I add my embedded <HTML> or google code to my articles anymore??! Should I throw out my editor? I was getting extremely frustrated. After a day of monkeying around with the options, I finally found out where to make changes in the 1.6 administrator backend to enable embedded codes or iframe in my articles.
With1.6, you can control text and links that users use to enter articles into your website. With your different ’s now, you can restrict some users from being able to enter in any HTML tags and thereby managing the type of content users can submit to your website. You can be as strict or as liberal as you require to suit your site needs. The text filtering is optional and the default settings provide good protection against any HTML markup commonly associated with Web site attacks.
Here are steps on how you can modify the settings for your “Super Users” account to have access to add iFrame code into articles:
1. Log in to yourAdministrator panel
2. Click on ‘Content’,'’, and click on the button ‘Options‘
3. Click on the ‘Text Filters‘ tab.
4. Go to the ‘Super Users’ and select from the dropdown – ‘No Filtering’.
5. Save the options and refresh your site.
6. If you are using TinyMCE editor, go to the editor options –menu > > Editor-TinyMCE (Tip provided by John)
7. Disable “clean up on save”. (Tip provided by Adam.)
Refreshing your site and create a new article. There is no need to throw out or change your Joomla 1.6 editor. You should be able to add iframe or any embedded html codes and the editor will not strip your code. I love Joomla again.
