Removing some Countries from dropdown box


Guest

Recommended Posts

Where the customer fills in there details how do i remove some of the countries in the dropdown box?

 

If i wanted to remove the whole dropdown box and place normal text with "United Kingdom" how would i do this?

 

I also want to change the "suburb" word to "county", how would i do this?

 

Thanks

the input field names are in english.php

 

the countries can be deleted in admin -> countries

 

I did not get what you mean by writing the word in normal text ...

Monkia said to look in admin for the countries

 

admin/Locations / Taxes / countries

if you do not want to delete them one by one, go to phpmyadmin in your host panel

 

open from your install folder the file oscommerce.sql, and search for the inserts for the countries table. Copy those into a new file, and delete all lines you do not need. Tabe a backup of your database in case you are messing things up, then trunca = EMPTY the countries table. Insert the lines you wanted to keep by copying them into the sql window in phpmyadmin.
