Notes[edit]

This template will not recognize formatted numbers, which is by design since formatted numbers will break expression parsers. To remove the formatting from a number, you can wrap the number first in {{formatnum: number |R}}.

code result
{{Ifnumber|1,000.50|a number|not a number}} not a number
{{Ifnumber|{{formatnum:1,000.50|R}}|a number|not a number}} a number
