Using Custom HTML with Flash or Javascript in Joomla without Modules

When you add custom HTML with Flash or Javascript using the WYSIWYG editor, Joomla will modify your code, rendering your code useless. Instead of using one of these modules, here is a simple hack using the built in Category feature.

  1. Login to your administration panel:
  2. Click on the Category Manager and add a new category
  3. Place your code in the description field
  4. Go to the Menu Manager and add an item
  5. Choose Articles->Category->Category Blog Layout
  6. Fill in the Title and then under Parameters (Basic) select the category you created in steps 2 and 3

Joomla will now display the custom HTML you placed in the description field without changing the code.
