Add-On Type(s)



Exposes PHP's number_format() function via EE tags.

You can read more about PHP’s number_format function here.

{exp:number_format number="1234.56"}

returns: 1,235

{exp:number_format number="1234.56" 
decimals="2" dec_point="." thousands_sep=","}

returns: 1,234.56

{exp:number_format decimals="2"}1234.56{exp:number_format}

returns: 1,234.56

Works in three ways.

  1. Number as a paramater: {exp:number_format number=“1234” decimals=“2”}
  2. Number as tag content: {exp:number_format decimals=“2”}1234{/exp:number_format}
  3. Number as a publish filter: Setup in the control panel.

Warning this plugin is about the simplest plugin you can make.  So I removed support for it.  If it doesn’t work.  Try using the builtin php number_format function <?php echo number_format(1234.56, 2); ?>

I wish the download link hadn’t disappeared. I need to format a user-input number as a dollar amount, and don’t feel like writing this tonight.

Hi, this is my plugin, and I think it’s stupid.  So if you agree, then we can both laugh about it.  But honestly, it’s the flashlight-app of EE plugins.
