1000 to 1,000

Post by winsrev » Fri Dec 23, 2005 5:11 pm

In all of the phpbb versions i have never seen numbers set out as 53,000 theyve always been 53000. All it requires is a simple

Code: Select all

number_format();
function added.

What for?
1000 is perfectly clear to everybody whist 1,000 == 1 in countries where a comma is the decimal delimitor.

Perhaps the most "logical (whose logic?)" to do if a format where to be imposed is using a space as a delimitor (except for thousands).

So 1000 is perfectly OK, as is 1 000 000.

It could probably be defined in the language files, if its country dependency can be assumed from the language, otherwise it could be added to the user profile so they can choose it like they do with date format, time zone, etc.

I think it would be better to use a space insead, because there is no language problem with that.

Comma looks slightly better. Should we get to choose in the acp?

Why space? IPB uses a comma.

Quoted for agreement. Language file would be the only sensible way.
