iframes issue in Joomla 2.5

asked Jan 7, 2013 in Website Builder by Donald (2,780 points)
Hi all..
Every time I try to add iframes in Joomla 2.5 it just doesn’t work and the iframe tag is always stripped. I don’t know why is this happening and how to fix it. Any help would be great.

Joomla 2.5 strips ifram tags by default. So this is normal in Joomla. To enable iframe usage in Joomla2.5, go to your Joomla admin account and hover the extensions and select plug-in-manager. Then go to type filter->editor->TinyMCE. Finally from the basic options list remove iframes from the list of prohibited elements and then save.

Another solution to this would be to allow iframes with global text filters
hover over Site from the top menu and click go Global Configuration then click  the Text Filters tab and for the Super Users , open the drop down menu and select No Filtering .
