There is no simple way to change the decimal numbers in the Weight Attribute in Magento.

And is not a specific solution either.

What can we do?

For example, we can force to all numeric attributes to show with 2 decimals.

Open the attributes.phtml located in:

app/design/frontend/YOUR THEME/template/catalog/product/view/

I changed this:

<?php echo $_helper->productAttribute($_product, strip_tags($_data['value']), $_data['code']) ?

To this:

<?php
$_MyValue = $_data['value'];
if (is_numeric($_MyValue))
{
$_MyValue = round($_MyValue, 2); //round to 0.00
}
?>
<?php echo $_helper->productAttribute($_product, strip_tags($my_data_value), $_data['code']) ?>

We already saw how to remove the .html extension from Magento.

When you install Magento probably your URLs would be like:

  • http://www.domain.com/index.php/about-us

There is an option to remove that index.php from the URL.

Go to your admin panel -> System -> General -> Web -> Search Engines Optimization.

Change Use Web Server Rewrites to Yes.

Now your URL will be cool enough
