Numbers and Strings in free and PRO plugin

Numbers and Strings:
See this JSON:

{"num": 3.5050, "str": "3.4040" }

There is a little difference: “num” is without quotation marks, “str” is with.
The JSON Content Importer Plugin and the PHP behind that handles the “num” as numeric data and removes the 0 at the end.

Free JCI:

[[jsoncontentimporter url=]num: {num}, str: {str}[/jsoncontentimporter]]

Free JCI in Action:
Note the missing 0 for the value of “num”

num: 3.505, str: 3.4040


To “save” the 0 you need the PRO plugin – unfortunately: There “convertjsonnumbers2strings=yes” converts the JSON to do this.


[[jsoncontentimporterpro nameoftemplate="twig-numbers" convertjsonnumbers2strings=yes]]


  • URL: see above
  • twig-template:
{{num}} {{str}}
