How to convert number to words in PHP

For example you need to convert a particular amount number into a word, let say

55892 – “fifty five thousand eight hundred ninety two”

To achieve this we can use below given code:

$ones = array(
” one”,
” two”,
” three”,
” four”,
” five”,
” six”,
” seven”,
” eight”,
” nine”,
” ten”,
” eleven”,
” twelve”,
” thirteen”,
” fourteen”,
” fifteen”,
” sixteen”,
” seventeen”,
” eighteen”,
” nineteen”
$tens = array(
” twenty”,
” thirty”,
” forty”,
” fifty”,
” sixty”,
” seventy”,
” eighty”,
” ninety”
$triplets = array(
” thousand”,
” million”,
” billion”,
” trillion”,
” quadrillion”,
” quintillion”,
” sextillion”,
” septillion”,
” octillion”,
” nonillion”
// recursive fn, converts three digits per pass
function convertTri($num, $tri) {
global $ones, $tens, $triplets;
// chunk the number, …rxyy
$r = (int) ($num / 1000);
$x = ($num / 100) % 10;
$y = $num % 100;
// init the output string
$str = “”;
// do hundreds
if ($x > 0)
$str = $ones[$x] . ” hundred”;
// do ones and tens
if ($y < 20)
$str .= $ones[$y];
$str .= $tens[(int) ($y / 10)] . $ones[$y % 10];
// add triplet modifier only if there
// is some output to be modified…
if ($str != “”)
$str .= $triplets[$tri];
// continue recursing?
if ($r > 0)
return convertTri($r, $tri+1).$str;
return $str;
// returns the number as an anglicized string
function convertNum($num) {
$num = (int) $num; // make sure it’s an integer
if ($num < 0)
return “negative”.convertTri(-$num, 0);
if ($num == 0)
return “zero”;
return convertTri($num, 0);
// Returns an integer in -10^9 .. 10^9
// with log distribution
function makeLogRand() {
$sign = mt_rand(0,1)*2 – 1;
$val = randThousand() * 1000000
+ randThousand() * 1000
+ randThousand();
$scale = mt_rand(-9,0);
return $sign * (int) ($val * pow(10.0, $scale));
// example of usage
echo “-5564 : “.convertNum(-5564).”<br>”;
echo “55892 : “.convertNum(55892);

Setup Maintenance Mode Using Hooks in Codeigniter

image1 (1)

There are so many ways to achieve maintenance mode in codeigniter. Codeigniter itself doesn`t provide such kind of functionality as other framework supports. This post supports how to setup maintenance mode using hooks.

Following are the steps to achieve this:

  1. Enable Hooks in the config.php file
  2. Create a custom config file for maintenance settings i.e maintenance_config.php
  3. Create an html called maintenance_view.php page under views or in root folder
  4. Create a Hook file called maintenance.php
  5. In the hooks config setup your hooks call to run on post_controller


<!DOCTYPE html>
    <style>Style your page</style>
    <p>We apologize but our site is currently undergoing maintenance at this time.</p>
    <p>Please check back later.</p>


<?php if ( ! defined('BASEPATH')) exit('No direct script access allowed');
$config['site_under_maintenance'] = TRUE;


if (!defined('BASEPATH')) exit('No direct script access allowed');
class Maintenance {
  var $CI;
  public function maintenance() {
     $this->CI = & get_instance();
     $this->CI->config->load('maintenance_config'); // Load custom config file
     if ($this->CI->config->item("site_under_maintenance")) {
        include(APPPATH . '/views/maintenance_view.php');


if (!defined('BASEPATH')) exit('No direct script access allowed');
$hook['post_controller'][] = array(
  'class' => 'maintenance',
  'function' => 'maintenance',
  'filename' => 'maintenance.php',
  'filepath' => 'hooks',
  'params' => array()

Session based flash messages

Quite a while ago, I grew tired of trying to come up with new and creative ways to display simple, one-time messages to users without crazy amounts of code for something that was frequently as trivial as “Saved!”.

Sessions are the obvious solution, however, without a single function that could both generate, AND display the messages, it still wasn’t any better.  And as usual, where there’s a will, and some code- there’s a way!

Before we get started, make sure that a session is started, otherwise a) no message will be displayed, and b) super fun headers already sent messages.

//Ensure that a session exists (just in case)
if( !session_id() )

//Actual function

 * Function to create and display error and success messages
 * @access public
 * @param string session name
 * @param string message
 * @param string display class
 * @return string message
function flash( $name = '', $message = '', $class = 'success fadeout-message' )
    //We can only do something if the name isn't empty
    if( !empty( $name ) )
        //No message, create it
        if( !empty( $message ) &amp;& empty( $_SESSION[$name] ) )
            if( !empty( $_SESSION[$name] ) )
                unset( $_SESSION[$name] );
            if( !empty( $_SESSION[$name.'_class'] ) )
                unset( $_SESSION[$name.'_class'] );

            $_SESSION[$name] = $message;
            $_SESSION[$name.'_class'] = $class;
        //Message exists, display it
        elseif( !empty( $_SESSION[$name] ) &amp;& empty( $message ) )
            $class = !empty( $_SESSION[$name.'_class'] ) ? $_SESSION[$name.'_class'] : 'success';
            echo '
.$class.‘” id=”msg-flash”>’.$_SESSION[$name].

//Set the first flash message with default class
flash( 'example_message', 'This content will show up on example2.php' );

//Set the second flash with an error class
flash( 'example_class', 'This content will show up on example2.php with the error class', 'error' );
//Displaying the messages
<?php flash( 'example_message' ); ?>
<?php flash( 'example_class' ); ?>
