I have a views counter on each post. When it reaches for example 1000, it adds a dot as the thousand separator, the result is 1.000. This is odd in my language, I should have a space as separator or nothing.

How can I change that?!


Use number_format_i18n( $number ). It will format the number with respect to the current blog’s language setting. It is a wrapper for PHP’s native number_format().

  • Thank you, your answer helped, but to fix this I had to change wp-includes/functions.php. – PauloP Jul 4 '12 at 11:14

    No, that’s wrong. The language separator is probably just missing in your language files. Add it there, do not create a fork of WordPress just for this. – fuxia Jul 4 '12 at 11:58
