Subject: [joomla] Adding javascript?

What's the best way to add javascript to a joomla site?
(I need the javascript code to use a mailchimp API.)

I tried editing the template to include the code in the <head> tag
but mailchimp doesn't recognize it.
I edited the JCE editor to allow me to put javascript in an article, which works
except sometimes when I edit the page the contains the javascript, joomla
removes the javascript.....Suggestions?


There are several plugins in the Joomla! Extension Directory that are great for including javascript scripts in your web site.

I've used this one before with success

Or look here for others

or you can simplify it with Google Tag Manager
