Hey,

When I enter $ it doesn't show all numbers.

The stats option in the dropdown doesn't show anything, just the Jelsoft copyright notice.

Yup ran into this as well. Put a space between the $ sign and the number. It appears that the script is interpreting it as an empty string variable otherwise.

Really sorry to say, but this just caused a major pain in the ass...

I used $ for every promotion I had going and everything came up as 0 and really took my clickthroughs and signups down costing a lot more than the script did...

Can we get a fix for this soon please.

To be honest, Im not 100% sure what you are talking about. Where are you putting the $?

In the description of the link (ie: the text displayed in the autolink popup in my case). If you want to say show the price of something the system seems to see the $ as the start of an (empty) string and so it replaces it with a blank string. So if I put in $50.00 all you would see is .00

What I had to do was put it is $ 50.00 for it to not consider it a string.

I see... You just need to escape the $ as it is a sign for a variable. So, $50 becomes \$50

HTHs!

Was the first thing I tried. Didn't work.

hmmm, that should do it. What about using the HTML character: & # 3 6 ; (without the spaces)

As embarrassing as it sounds, I couldn't for the life of me remember or quickly find the damn code for the $ character...that should work fine.

hrhr, I cant ever remember them all, a quick google for html special character symbols did the trick though :)
