I am using the following code to try to embed chat in to an article in Joomla 1.5.26:

<iframe src="http://xxxxxxx.com/welcome/visichat/" width="100%" height="550px" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe>

Whenever I hit save, the code disappears. Actually, it seems that any html code I try to save disappears. I am trying with the toggle editor tab and the insert html button. Does anyone know why Joomla won't let me embed html?

I am trying to get the chat to load with the site navigation still in place. I'd also be interested in hearing other ways to accomplish this.

In case what I mention below isn't the issue, what exact version are you using? (1.5.what) – Su' Jun 24 '12 at 18:18
I'm using version 1.5.26. – Arthur Jun 24 '12 at 18:25

See my comment above, but in v1.5.8 a content filtering option was added, and turned on by default, that strips HTML unless you say otherwise. It applied to everyone no matter what access level, though 1.5.9 then exempted super-admins.

I followed the link and turned off content filtering, but that didn't change anything. I am using version 1.5.26. – Arthur Jun 24 '12 at 18:25
I played around more with the setting listen in the article and it worked. Thanks. – Arthur Jun 25 '12 at 0:59
