Adding a Form to Joomla

Adding a Form to Joomla

Although scripts and iframes are not allowed on Joomla's editor by default, you could embed the form on your website using either the JavaScript or iFrame method using the following setup:

  1. Go to the Publish tab.
  2. Click Platforms.
  3. Search for Joomla.
  4. Copy the code provided.
Platforms Joomla

Platforms Joomla

The easiest way to embed the form on your Joomla website is by temporarily disabling the default editor.

Disable Editor

Disable Editor

Paste the code in your article, then reenable the editor.

If you're looking for something permanent, you can try the following setup.

Editor - TinyMCE

Joomla Editor Tinymce

Joomla Editor Tinymce

This setup would be for the Super Users role. It's also applicable to other user roles.

  1. Go to Extensions.
  2. Click on Plugins.
  3. Search for TinyMCE.
    Joomla Plugins
    Joomla Plugins
  4. Go to the Set 0 tab (where Super Users is assigned).
  5. Scroll down to the Use Joomla Text Filter section and set it to "On".
  6. Hit the Save & Close button.
    Use Joomla Text Filter
    Use Joomla Text Filter
  7. Go to System.
  8. Select Global Configuration from the menu.
  9. Click on the Text Filters tab.
  10. Make sure that Super Users is set to "No Filtering".
    Text Filter Settings
    Text Filter Settings

Note that this is just for the default TinyMCE editor. The settings may look differently depending on the editor you're using.

You should now be able to paste the embed code in your article without getting stripped off.

    How do i align it to maybe left or center?

  • sctourism

    Every time I add the code, it includes all the other text on the page over again, along with the page headers and everything. Why is it duplicating the page instead of just putting in the form?

  • Ray

    1. Go to your site 'Control Panel'


    2. Click 'Global Configuration'

    There is no such option.

    3. Click 'Text Filters'

    4. Change Administrator and Super Users to 'No Filtering'

    5. Save

    The solution to Joomla stripping out & tags.

    In Joomla! 1.5.8 and later, a default filtering choice is in place.

    As such there are certain tags which are on a Black List and will always be stripped out on saving.

    To switch this 'Black List' off follow the instructions below.

    1. Go to your site 'Control Panel'
    2. Click 'Global Configuration'
    3. Click 'Text Filters'
    4. Change Administrator and Super Users to 'No Filtering'
    5. Save

    And your done!

  • glmthug

  • ruthjohnson

    Mine has been working for months but today I removed a field and the updates do not show? any ideas on how to solve this?

  • cmoore

    No problem, I use JCE as well. You will need to go to the user manager (site/user)and for editor select none. Once you have pasted your code into the article you can return back to the user manager and re-select jce as your editor. Be aware that anytime you open the article (or module) that has your code you will need to first go to the user manager and select no editor otherwise as soon as you open the article the code will be stripped.
    Hope this helps.
