Sort and #expr doesn't work on comma-separated decimals
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Indonesian language is one of the language that uses dot to separate thousands and commas to separate decimals (opposite to US), and it didn't reflect well on sorting and #expr parserfunction. I've only tested it on 1.16, but I think I saw the same bug on 1.17. Not sure about 1.18 have been resolved or not. Will post examples as soon as I can find one.

Garbage in, garbage out. Please don't feed formatted numbers to #expr.

Please take a look at Indonesian Wiktionary's Main Page for example

In order to get the total number of Indonesian words & phrases, I have to add the two categories. To make it work, I have to multiply the {{PAGESINCATEGORY}} by 1000

[[:Kategori:Kata bahasa Indonesia|Indonesia]] ({{#expr:{{PAGESINCATEGORY:Kata bahasa Indonesia}}*1000+{{PAGESINCATEGORY:Frasa bahasa Indonesia}}}}) -

For the sorting error, it seems like it has been fixed on 1.18 (?)

Example here:

Use {{PAGESINCAT:Frasa bahasa Indonesia|R}} instead.
