Hi all,

I have set my country Chile as default in the create_account.php and address_book_details.php while habing other countries. Now I want to set the Chilean state/provinces for Chilean users as a dropdown list to choose from, in order to avoid problems with shipping.

How can I do that?

 

I will much appreciate your help.

I'm in the previous step. How do you set up default country? I want to do this for Finland?

I am with you, I want to make one of the countries selected by Default every time the Country dropdown is generated. I traced it back to this function:

 

function tep_get_country_list($name, $selected = '', $parameters = ''){...}

 

which then uses the parameters provided and the OSC generic pulldown builder function to create the element. I tried just replacing the default assignment of the $selected variable with the code for my prefered country (223) as such:

 

function tep_get_country_list($name, $selected = 223, $parameters = ''){...}

 

but this did not have an effect. I tried defining it as a string, using single quotes ('223') but that didn't help either.

 

How is this done?

In create_account.php it looks like this:

 

                <td class="main"><?php echo tep_get_country_list('country','223') . ' ' . (tep_not_null(ENTRY_COUNTRY_TEXT) ? '<span class="inputRequirement">' . ENTRY_COUNTRY_TEXT . '</span>': ''); ?></td>

If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.
