View Full Version : [Catalog Issue] Entry_State not being recorded at account creation 2.5 RC1

Has anyone had issues with the state not being recorded properly?
[edit: in the address_book table] I see that entry_zone_id is crosslinking the state info from the zone_id table - does entry_state serve a purpose?

Since migrating from beta 1 to RC1 I've noticed my existing customers need to re-select their state in their address book otherwise paypal kicks back A UNDELIVERABLE ADDRESS response.

If it keeps being a problem i'll either spend a few hours manually entering their states in sql or wipe the current account data and make 400 people start over

any technical info is welcome. =) i <3 oscmax

further searching i found these bug reports
0000753: Adress book in checkout shows abbreviations instead of full zone names - osCmax Bug Tracking System (http://bugtrack.oscmax.com/view.php?id=753)
0000747: One page checkout - add new address in OPC can be entered blank. - osCmax Bug Tracking System (http://bugtrack.oscmax.com/view.php?id=747)

Seems unresolved, hope i can help

Also... it seems country selection should visually be BEFORE state selection in the address entry form. Changing this on my site help immensely in confused customer calls that cant read the (select country first) fine print =)

There's just no helping some dumb ass lusers... since when did County come before Country on an address label? :wink: (rhetorical)

Yep - in v2.5 - goto: catalog/includes/languages/{your language}/locale/locale.php

and change
define ('DEFAULT_COUNTRY', '222');

to the country code you want (which you can find in admin in the countries tab under Locations/Taxes)
