I am new to both Silverstripe and PHP, having used both now for about 5 months. I am building an e-commerce site using silversrtipe 3.1, and have encountered a problem entering product prices.

Silverstripe "corrects" any dollar entry that has zeros after the decimal point. So, if I enter 5.00 (5 dollars) as a product price, when I save or publish the page, the entry is corrected to just the number 5. The decimal and the two zeros that follow it are removed.

Any idea how to turn this off?

thank you

It sounds like the issue could be with your DB definition. Can you post your $db array from that model?

Hi again,

Here it is...

private static $db = array(
'ProductNumber' => 'Text',
'Units' => 'Int',
'Price' => 'Currency',
'Caption' => 'Text',
'ProductOptions'=> 'HTMLText',
'ProductPr' => 'HTMLText',
'DiscountPr' => 'HTMLText',
'Related' => 'Text'

Ok. I've got it. I changed the field from "TextField" to "CurrencyField" , and used the Nice function provided by CurrencyField in the template.
