Enable/Disable Countries and Zones

Post by Brent » Fri Jan 08, 2010 7:51 am

In admin, you have the ability to enable or disable countries and zones.

The cart download has only several countries enabled. All zones (states or provinces) for these countries are available by default. This feature allows you to enable a country and all zones for that country with one setting.
If you want to add a country, click the update in county and enable. All the zones for that country are now available.
If there is a particular zone you don't want to allow customer access from, go to the Zones controller in admin and update to disable that zone.
There is usually no need to ever delete a country or zone unless they are obsolete.
You also don't have to disable zones unless you only want to limit some zones from a country.
If you disable a country, all zones for that country are no longer available.
This gives the store owner complete control over customer account creation by country and zone.

A new feature that will be available in the upcoming release of version 1.1 is the ability to enable all countries or disable all countries.
It is a toggle process. If you have any countries enabled and click the Enable/Disable button, all countries are disabled. You can then click
the button again to enable all countries.

You may need to clear your browser cache if changes are not immediate

This feature is on the Demo.
