Hello people.

Im here to report a problem or to get some help to understand how to use javascript code in a new page.

I put my code in html page:
<img src="/image.gif" onclick="startGateway('155891');" />

And this under the html code.
<script type="text/javascript" src="/gateway/mygate.php?id=4e2b7a3945426d416d786c7542355776"></script>

But when i save and publish my site and i go in the page and click the image, i do not see any script opening.

PS: I got this problem with AdSense script too.

You'll have to explain how you are putting this in your page. In the template? In a content window in the CMS admin?

The latter isn't really the place for this as TinyMCE will strip certain tags out when you save as a security measure. There are ways to allow it in code. But if this is your site, what you are doing here is better off in the template.

What does the source code of this section end up looking like on the frontend?

I put the code on content window in the CMS admin page. The source of this code open a table where you have to complete a survey.

How can i allow this code, or where i have to put it if i want to use it in pages?

Maybe try using jQuery? This will also allow you to modify any script changes on the external javascript file rather than on individual items like /image.gif :)

Is there any reason why you are not putting this into your template file?

The HTML Editor window is not really the place for JavaScript unless you extend it. It strips out some HTML tags because giving users the ability to inject JavaScript is a security concern.

If you want to allow JavaScript to be entered into the editor, you'll need to search for TinyMCE. That's what the editor is and it's a third party app.
