Annoying change in UI in 4.6

Hi,

Before I upgraded to 4.6, when I went to manually add a registrant (or for that matter when someone registered regularly through the web), the default province (I’m in Canada and that’s the default country) was AB for Alberta.

Now, since upgrading to 4.6, the default choice is the US state of Alabama.

Could this please be put back the way it used to be?

Thanks,

Paul

Hi Paul,

Are you sure it didn’t give you a “-please select-” option by default, with a link that let you add a state/province that wasn’t in the list before? The reason I ask is because that’s how 4.4.10 worked. In 4.6 they made some changes which led to removing the “click here to add a new state/province”, but they’ll be adding that back in as soon as they can.

I’m now using 4.6.11 and the UI is still annoying in this regard.

It knows the default country is Canada but insists on supply a US state as the default. Doesn’t make sense to me.

Hi Paul,

Do you anticipate having registrations come in from Alabama? If not, you can remove those from the select lists by going into the Event Espresso > General Settings > Countries tab. If you remove all of the states that come before Alberta alphabetically, Alberta will display by default.

I don’t think that’s a realistic option because I’d have to remove all the US states (since they are sorted by US first, than Canadian provinces) and I do have lots of clients from the US. Just the vast majority are from Alberta.

Hi Paul,
You can make it default to Alberta by adding this javascript:

jQuery(document).ready( function($) {
  jQuery("select[id$=state]").val(60);
});

Re:

That is an incorrect assumption. If you remove Alabama, and Alaska, you’ll find it will default to Alberta.

Sidney,

Where would I add that code?

Thanks,

Hi,

The following is based on Sidneys code, you could add it to a site specific plugin:
http://eventespresso.com/wiki/create-site-specific-plugin-wordpress-site/

function a_for_alberta() {
    if ( is_admin() ) {
        ?>
        <script>
        jQuery(document).ready( function($) {
          jQuery("select[id$=state]").val(60);
        });
        </script>
        <?php
    }
}
add_action('admin_head', 'a_for_alberta');

Thanks, that code works great for an admin adding a new registrant.

Can we do the same thing on the client side of things?

I really think it makes sense that if the default country is Canada that the default choice for state/province should be Canadian too.

Hi Paul,

Try this updated version:

function a_for_alberta() {
    if ( is_admin() ) {
        ?>
        <script>
        jQuery(document).ready( function($) {
          jQuery("select[id$=state]").val(60);
        });
        </script>
        <?php
    }
}
add_action('admin_head', 'a_for_alberta');

function a_for_alberta_frontend() {
    if ( is_page( 123 ) ) {
        ?>
        <script>
        jQuery(document).ready( function($) {
          jQuery("select[id$=state]").val(60);
        });
        </script>
        <?php
    }
}
add_action('wp_head', 'a_for_alberta_frontend');

The second function is set to load on the registration checkout page. The value 123 should be changed to the post ID of your actual registration checkout page. This ID can be found by going to the registration checkout WP page in your WP dashboard.

Lorenzo,

With that active, the admin module just brings up a blank page.

I had to go back to the previous version to get things working again.

Any ideas?

Hi Paul, that looks like a formatting issue on the support forum reply as part of the sample code appeared missing when it was actually there. I’ve adjusted it.

Could you give that another try?

You should see something like this instead of blank areas of the code:

Lorenzo,

Still getting the same results; a non-working site.

Hi Paul, I re-tested this (latest version of Event Espresso and WordPress) and it is working without crashing the site in the WP-admin or front-end:

http://cl.ly/image/0S1X1g2r3327

The example that I shared already includes the existing solution that Dean shared. I combined them into one reply so you have a more complete solution — one for the WP dashboard and a new one for the front-end.

If you are copying the new coding with the existing coding in place then that would cause an error.

Could you double-check that isn’t the issue here?

Thanks


Lorenzo

It’s all good to go now.

Thanks for the help.
