I am brand new to Joomla and it appears that it does not allow JavaScript codes to run by default. I am running my website on the latest version (3.10). I have looked all around the internet, disabled all editor options as suggested, however to no avail. Wondering if there is a way to enable it without installing any additional module/plugin. From old references, something similar to adding a custom HTML/JavaScript is needed. I need to be able to place Amazon/Google advertisements on my site.

  • Depending on your site template you may be able to ass custom js/css in the template settings (Extensions -> Templates -> Styles -> [template name])

  • @jonboy thank you for responding. I was able to add a custom JS on the location as you suggested. However, (i) I am unable to call it inside a module, (ii) I would not know even if i was successfully able to call it on the page coz no matter what nothing appears on the module when it is published.

  • @ManishKYadav You didn't mention you wanted to include the code inside a module, in that case my suggestion won't work as it will be included in the <head> of each page. I don't know any way of doing this without installing a third party plugin, or creating your own custom module docs.joomla.org/J3.x:Creating_a_simple_module/…. Is there any reason why you can't install a third party plugin? Would make the process much easier.

  • @jonboy i tried a few plugins but to no avail. A few of them needed a paid 'pro' version to unlock features to enable them but I am not in a situation where i can use a paid version. Also, with the limited features that were enabled, i still could not see a thing after saving the modules. Aug 26, 2021 at 14:33
