No, it’s OK, I don’t want to remove Queensland or Tasmania from the list of Australian states… wink

But I would like to edit the list of States that appear in the dropdown from the full name to the abbreviation. So New South Wales becomes NSW.
Chris, if you’re reading this, is it a reasonably easy hack?

Thanks…

Hi Neil,
I think this can be done in the database.

Cheers

Ron

Thanks Ron…
I tried that, but it didn’t seem to impact the frontend - but perhaps I didn’t refresh the cache at the time… Will try again.

Thanks!

I used shambie’s sql code that she created for Malaysia and changed for key delivery areas in AUS (the states) and NZ (the two main islands).

Used phpMyAdmin to import the sql file. Worked really well thanks shambie grin

See this post
Malaysian states SQL insert post

Probably want to use the Fontis extension for a more sophisticated approach though…
