When I save a shortcode into a custom HTML module, all HTML code disappears

Custom HTML modules and articles allow us to display custom HTML code inside any module position or inside an article. The only thing that you must do is to select a shortcode and copy - paste it into a module or an article.

During this process a problem may arise when you save the module or article: Most editors will strip the HTML tags and this will break the module or article.

The best way to create a custom module or an article is to use the CodeMirror editor which is already installed by default in your Joomla website. To change the editor, go to Joomla Administrator area > System > Global Configuration and in the field Default Editor select Editor - CodeMirror.

Note that even the most popular editors in Joomla like JCE could cause many problems in custom content modules unless they are properly set.
