Edit Decription Fields in Advanced Address

  1. Hi, I'm setting up a form for Australian users, With the Zip Code Field I'd like to replace Zip / Postal Code with Post Code, Also would like to edit the region description as well. I can not work out which file needs editing. Any ideas on how to do this?

    As a side Note, Any Chance of adding an Australian Option to the drop down?

    We don't use the term "Zip Code" or Province

  2. You can check out this thread to read up on how to use the available api to change the sub-labels of the advanced fields (ie. zip/postal code, etc.):

    We do plan on adding additional address options in the future.

  3. Thanks Carl, The filter works a treat. Perhaps you can help out a little further, For the State field, How would I then turn that into a drop down.

    These would be the 8 States;


    Next Custom Option option is, How would I remove the State Field all together? On another form I have done, the state field is not required as it is a local targeted web site.

    So a wish list for the Next Update, To have an Australian Option to Choose From, Zip to be Labeled "Post Code" and State will be State with the above names in the drop down.

    Add more options to be excluded when creating the form

    I need to know this as well. The website that I'm working on is for local targets only so the State field is completely unnecessary. Which template file do you access to remove it? Or more appropriate, what line of script could I use in function.php to eliminate it completely?

  5. The easiest thing to do is set your chosen state as the default value for the field, then hide the state input field with some css.. something like this.. appended to your theme style sheet.

    #input_1_13.4 {display:none}

    of course replacing it with the actual input ID from your form.
