I am new to Magento and have a couple of sites that are nearing completion. Currently I have a site that is using the rwd template (heavily modified) and it works great. The one question I cannot seem to find an answer to is how to display the state abbreviation in the dropdown list of pages like yoursite.com/checkout/cart/
I have changed code based on what I could find on the web, but none of the patches/overrides or code changes seem to work. I have changed shipping.phtml in the /app/design/frontend/rwd/default/template/checkout/cart/ directory and can see that's where it starts the <select> stub, but cannot figure out how the rest of the list is populated.
Ideally, if it's easier to just change all state/province dropdowns to display the code instead of the name in a core magento fie, that would be perfect.
Solved! Go to Solution.
This isn't really what I was looking for: the code to be able to change what is sent rather than modifying the database directly, but it did work as advertised, and I am happy with the results.
