When selecting Number Format, 'Select a Format' is repeated numerous times. And are there only supposed to be 2 choices?
I'm using 1.6beta2 and WordPress 3.2.1 as well and had a different experience. I have just two choices:
The "Select a format" option is displayed for fields that were created prior to 1.6, and therefore don't have a format specified. It was added to maintain backwards compatibility with older versions. I am not sure why you have more than one "Select a format", but I will look into why that could be happening. To solve your problem, select one of the available formats (9,999.99 or 9.999,00). When you do that, all your "Select a format" options will go away. If they don't, please let me know I will dig deeper.
Hi Alex and Chris
I think this could be caused by a conflicting script or some other problem on my local dev (XAMPP), because the extra 'Select a format' is gone now. And I did nothing except disabled some plugins....
So let me look this over more on my end.
If you are able to replicate the problem, please post here to let me know.
I was finally able to replicate the problem. The problem is that the "Select a format" option is being added every time you expand the field editor. If you "Edit" your number field, then "Close" the editor and then "Edit" it again, you will see two "Select a format" options. If you reload the page, all the extra options are gone. I have fixed the issue locally and it will be out in the next release. This is not a critical fix, but if you would like to have it, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send it your way.
I'm just happy it's not on my end :)
