When you're writing an article in Joomla 2.5 and save the changes, there are various elements that Joomla will naturally remove from your content. For example, if you've added any javascript to your article, Joomla will remove your script tags. This is a security measure taken by Joomla, but when you really need to use javascript this does cause headaches for many users.

Just like javascript, Joomla removes iframes from code as well. In a previous article we showed you how to allow iframes in your html code, and allowing javascript code follows the same steps.

Question: How do I prevent Joomla from removing my javascript code?
Answer: Review our article on allowing iframes in your articles. Follow the steps in the article, but substitute <iframe> with <script>.

This is because jQuery is not included within your code. You will need to download jQuery and include it within your file.
