Since the release of Joomla 3.9.19, the Joomla! security team "has made some changes to the default settings for the global text filters in a new Joomla installation. The default setting for the 'Public', 'Guest' and 'Registered' groups is now 'No HTML'." Since these changes are only applied to new installations, it is strongly recommend that you review them and update your site where you deem it appropriate.




Here's a summarized version of the transcript:

- The video discusses enabling a "No HTML" filter for Registered, Public, and Guest groups in Joomla.
- The presenter, Tim Davis, introduces the topic and mentions a change in Joomla 3.9.19 regarding HTML usage.
- The video is sponsored by "My Sites Guru," a tool for managing Joomla and WordPress sites from a single dashboard.
- Tim explains that the default filter for public, guest, and registered groups used to allow HTML usage for articles.
- He demonstrates how to use "My Sites Guru" to identify and fix this issue easily.
- Tim advises users to update their Joomla sites' text filters for the mentioned groups to "No HTML" for better security.
- He suggests creating new groups if specific users need HTML capabilities, while keeping default groups HTML-free.
- The video ends with Tim sharing his approach to tackling tasks with quick victories in the morning.
