Joomla editors does not save format
i was struggling for whole day to underestand why the hell when i save an article (copy paste , edit, format) it does not save and the text will be there showing just plain.
then with quick comparasion of all settings i found out that i had touched the filtering setting on global configuration which does not allow me to format text. no mater what editor you use.
Go to article manager.
Click on parameters.
and make sure you scroll down to filter and super administrator is NOT SELECTED.
