Set default country at top of list

We need to have a list of countries available on checkout, but the vast majority of attendees will be from the U.S. Where might I find an option to move United States to the top of the list as the default country?

Hi there,

While there are no options for setting a default country, you can add a bit of code to your site that will change the default country to US:

function my_change_default_ee_country_option(){
 $custom_js = 'jQuery(document).ready(function($){';
 $custom_js .= '$(".ee-reg-qstn-country").val("US");';
 $custom_js .= '});';
    wp_add_inline_script('ee_form_section_validation', $custom_js);

You can add the above to a functions plugin or into your WordPress theme’s functions.php file.
