Kristopher Just wondering how I would remove the $ from someone who inputs in price with a $ sign. If a user enters $ it is does not enter the database You help would be awesome

May be you should use the number field here, should do some trick. I believe we’ve room for improvements in the plugins validation system.

So I have a text field with the metatag _price. Now, I have put a placeholder of “50 as an example”

But it would be good to remove the $ if the user put it in.

Use this code below in your themes functions.php. It should strip out any $ sign from your _price custom field.

* Update the custom field when the form submits
* @param int $post_id
function wpufe_update_post_price( $post_id ) {
$price = get_post_meta( $post_id, ‘_price’, true );
$price = str_replace( ‘$’, ”, $price );

update_post_meta( $post_id, ‘_price’, $price );

add_action( ‘wpuf_add_post_after_insert’, ‘wpufe_update_post_price’ );
add_action( ‘wpuf_edit_post_after_update’, ‘wpufe_update_post_price’ );
