Joomla blacklists <object>, <embed> & <iframe> by default for security reasons and filters out and removes these tags from your articles if you try to add them in your content. The iframe and embed options are useful to integrate e.g. Google Maps and Youtube. There’s a solution to disable the filtering by de-selecting certain user groups in joomla as blacklisted for filtering. This didn’t work for me though.

Instead, here’s a method to get it to work by diving into the PHP file itself. To disable the filtering, edit the filter PHP file and remove the tags from the blacklist.

Path: libraries\joomla\filter\filterinput.php

$tagBlacklist = array ('applet', 'body', 'bgsound', 'base', 'basefont', 'embed', 'frame', 'frameset', 'head', 'html', 'id', 'iframe', 'ilayer', 'layer', 'link', 'meta', 'name', 'object', 'script', 'style', 'title', 'xml');
