Rupee Symbol not showing (15 posts)

    I set my currency to Indian Rupee. But instead of the rupee symbol I get a square box ( like an unrecognized character ). Any suggestions ?
    In : woocommerce/woocommerce-core-functions.php - I get

    case 'INR' : $currency_symbol = '& #8377 ;'; break;

    Any Suggestions

    The symbol displays correctly on my system. Is you site using UTF-8 encoding for database and Web pages?

    If you don't have an encoding meta tag in your pages try adding this to the page header and see if that resolves the issue for you:

    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />

    No , this did'nt work .
    Will it break any functionality if I replace "&#8377" with "Rs" in woocommerce/woocommerce-core-functions.php ?

    @Gtantra, try this:
    case 'INR': $currency_symbol = 'Rp'; break;

    Yes @terrytsang . I just want to know if changing the symbol there will break any functionality or create some error ?

    *its Rs and not Rp

    i have tried testing last time at my local, it is working without any error. Why not you have a try at your site?

    @terrytsang . Yes "Rs" does work .
    What i meant is since its a payment gateway - I hope it does'nt affect the payments in anyway / and also that it recognizes the currency INR.
    I guess I'l keep the "Rs" symbol - if there is no further reply from woo-commerce .
    Thanks All

    @Gtantra, i believe the symbol is just a viewing option, woocommerce will use 'INR' for payment purpose only.

    Go to Appearance > Editor
    Click on Theme Functions(functions.php)
    note:if u are usig a child theme then go to the parent theme and edit the functions.php
    Scroll to the very bottom and add a new line after the very last character
    Copy and paste the following into the document
    add_filter( 'woocommerce_currencies', 'add_inr_currency' );
    add_filter( 'woocommerce_currency_symbol', 'add_inr_currency_symbol' );

    function add_inr_currency( $currencies ) {
    $currencies['INR'] = 'INR';
    return $currencies;

    function add_inr_currency_symbol( $symbol ) {
    $currency = get_option( 'woocommerce_currency' );
    switch( $currency ) {

    add this script in your header.php to convert all "Rs" or "Rs." to the rupee symbol

    <script src="http://cdn.webrupee.com/js" type="text/javascript"></script>

    use the code provided above by vinodsai if you're getting box instead of Rs / Rs.
