no commas in prices
« on: February 24, 2010, 19:32:51 pm »
Joomla 1.5, VM 1.1.4

My prices aren't showing correctly, there are no commas in prices over $1,000.

ie, instead of showing $8,885  it shows $8 885.  It does this for every price.  I want to use both US Dollars and Euros.

I know there are a lot of posts already on price issues. I tried rigorously searching the forum for a solution and no advanced searches turned up any similar issues.

Hi Lee,

I have had problems with the thousand seperator going missing. The easiest way to fix the problem is to go Virtuemart>Store>Edit Store> and then check if you have anything entered in the Thousands separator:

Even if you do delete the comma, save the settings. Then go back and re-enter the comma and save again.

Clear you site and browser cache. Reload you website and you should see the thousands separator appear again!

Perfect!  What do you know it was a space.  As usual I thought it was a bug or something more sinsiter.  I need to get used to fixing these kinds of things in the admin area :P

I had the same problem.  Removed the space in front of the comma and all was fixed.
