Yeah I had realized the issue of different formats, but didn't realize it would be so difficult to implement. I thought number_format() sort of took care of it. Anyway, I think it would be a good feature if implemented, but of course it's nothing major. :)

hm... Just seen a MOD that does this here: http://infinityhouse.org/board/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=26

So maybe it could be coded that way?

It wouldn't have worked because of different formats ;)

No, it's not difficult to implement. Each lang file would just specify the thousands separator and the decimal separator. Though, where are we using decimals in phpBB?

This link is no longer valid... What mod was it? I own a rather large phpBB3 forum, and also would like to implement commas on my forum to indicate thousands.
