Developers -- How to add new units into the WPL?

Posted by Howard R. on 05 August 2015 02:06 AM

WPL units saved in [wp_prefix]_wpl_units table. If you want to add a new unit into the WPL, you should add a new record in this table. Please fill the below columns based on instructions:

id: Add a high id into this field. 10001 and higher are good values for id column.

type: Insert 1 for length unit, 2 for area unit, 3 for valume unit and 4 for currency units.

tosi: Insert exchange rate of new unit to SI unit. For currencies, SI unit is USD. For other units, m, m² and m³ are SI units.

After adding new unit, it will appear in WPL->Data Structure->Unit manager and you can enable/disable it or make it default unit by sorting it to the top.

Hi, thanks for the explanation; is there any way to change the currency SI unit to Euro?

In the new version of WPL (which is not released yet), we have the option to define "Base Currency" which makes WPL calculate the SI based on the selected Currency.
