Add-On Type(s)



Create a real currency field with the benefits of filtering due the nature of the field.


How it works

The currency fieldtype works just like any other fieldtype, it also looks like a normal fieldtype but in fact it is not a real simple field. The currency fieldtype convert in the MySQL database the field to a decimal field. This way it can hold any currency value like 9.95 or 188.50


Because the field is now converted to an decimal, the filtering (orderby) in the {exp:channel:entries} works perfectly

Be aware

Because the currency fieldtype convert the field in MySQL to a decimal field, it is wise to delete this field if you want to change it to an other fieldtype. Otherwise that field is an decimal field and not a text field.
