Price format and currency sign can not be changed on home page with Magik_Tools, Magik_Clothes, ElectroMagik or MagikBeauty Magento themes

Changes for price format and currency sign are not reflected on home page, best seller block, new products block or Inchoo featured products block when Magik_Tools or Magik_Clothes or ElectroMagic or MagikBeauty Magento theme is used. Products are shown with '$' currency sign, no matter which currency is set for the store at System > Configuration > General > Currency Settings in Magento backend.


Price format and currency sign is hardcoded in the theme template.


Replace the code in app/design/frontend/default/clothes_store/template/catalog/random.phtml by inserting

<?php echo $this->getPriceHtml($displayed_products[$random_products[$i]], true, '-new') ?>

instead of

<span class="regular-price" id="product-price-37">
 <span class="price" >$<?php echo $displayed_products[$random_products[$i]]->getPrice(); ?></span>


clothes_store in the template path above should be replaced according to your theme (i.e. electro_magik, magik_tools etc.). Additional templates that may require fixing are:

  • ElectroMagik Magento theme
    • app/design/frontend/default/electro_magik/template/cms/home.phtml
    • app/design/frontend/default/electro_magik/template/inchoo/bestseller.phtml
  • Clothes Store Magento theme
    • app/design/frontend/default/clothes_store/template/catalog/random.phtml
    • app/design/frontend/default/clothes_store/template/cms/home.phtml
    • app/design/frontend/default/clothes_store/template/inchoo/bestseller.phtml
  • Magik_Beauty Magento theme
    • app/design/frontend/default/magik_beauty/template/catalog/random.phtml
    • app/design/frontend/default/magik_beauty/template/cms/home.phtml
    • app/design/frontend/default/magik_beauty/template/inchoo/bestseller.phtml
  • Magik_tools Magento theme
    • app/design/frontend/default/magik_tools/template/catalog/random.phtml
    • app/design/frontend/default/magik_tools/template/cms/home.phtml
    • app/design/frontend/default/magik_tools/template/inchoo/bestseller.phtml

The fix is applied already if theme was installed automatically via installer.
