[resolved] Change Default Shipping and Billing State to "Select a State" (4 posts)

    I'm using the latest version of WP Ecommerce (v, Gold Cart (v & WP (v 3.5.1).

    When a customer goes to the checkout page, the default country and state is showing for both the shipping and billing - how can I change this so that only the default country will show, but the state dropdown will just say "Select a state"?

    Is there a table in the database I need to add a "Select a State" option for? ...how can I do it?

    I want USA to show by default, but I don't want the customer to have to change the state from NC to GA for example. They are confused and would prefer just choosing their state from a dropdown that says "Select a state".

    It would also be nice if the state they select to calculate shipping on the shopping cart page would be carried over into the billing/checkout page. How can I do this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Go to the database using phpMyAdmin, then look for a table called wpsc_region_tax add a new entry with the following :

    country_id : 136 (if you are in the USA)
    name : Select One
    code : NO
    tax : 0

    Then go back to the plugin and select Select One as your state on the wp-admin.
