Add-On Type(s)



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


How it works

The number 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 number fieldtype convert in the MySQL database a field to a integer field. This way it can hold any number value like 9 or 100 or 2819.


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


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

Works as advertised. This fieldtype is needed if you wish to use {exp:channel:entries}’ orderby mechanism with numeric data (ie. price or something like that).
