  • By widget I meant Java Code that is provided for rotating banner by affiliate marketing companies like cj.com, linkshare.com. I have installed sourcerer extension which appears to be serving my purpose. Commented Nov 18, 2014 at 3:48

The built-in Custom HTML module in Joomla can work, but if you're using TinyMCE as your editor, it will try to clean up your code, thus removing code that such Widgets might contain (usually <script> tags and often empty <div> tags).

One workaround is to use another editor (JCE, RokPad etc.), but this might cause problems if the module is opened later using TinyMCE again.

The easiest way to add any code is to use a custom HTML module, like Custom HTML Advanced.
