Hi i am new to magento at very basic level.I am facing an issue regarding currency.Right now only the currency symbol is shown e.g $50.But i want to show the currency name and currency code e.g. US $50 or A$50 to differentiate among different symbols.
I have found that using the below way one can get the desired things
Currency Code :
<?php echo $currency_code = Mage::app()->getStore()->getCurrentCurrencyCode(); ?>
Currency Symbol :
<?php echo Mage::app()->getLocale()->currency(Mage::app()->getStore()->getCurrentCurrencyCode())->getSymbol(); ?>
But i cant understand where should i implent this.Currency converter is present in the header.I want that if user selects "USD" the price of each product display as "US $20".....Please help me to fix this
You can set this from admin :-
Go to admin -> system -> Manage Currency ->symbols
And set your code and symbol here.
