check box for "same as billing address"
When a customer goes to put in personal info, there needs to be a way for them to click for shipping address "same as billing address" - the defaul says leave blank if same as billing address. If you use UPS online tools, it does not work. The fields stay mandatory no matter if you make it not mandatory or not... is there a way around this so my customers do not have to type the info 2 times on the same page? Leaving it blank like the directions say does not work.

various bugs
Here are some suggestions some I think are just bugs that got over looked.

Make the 'contact us' 'state' and 'country' fields work the same as the 'customer profile' 'state' and 'country' fields. i.e. When a customer selects a country the appropriate states are presented rather then showing all available states for all countries.

Be able to choose the checkout 'active' and 'required' fields as you can for the user profile options in the admin general settings. This probably was over looked or assumed that setting them for customer profile would set them for checkout but they seem to work independently.

Do not display the default shipping city, state and zip code when customer uses anonymous checkout. Keep the fields blank as they are for the billing fields. So that they will copy the billing information when not filled in. A better approach would be to have a check box that the customer could check when his shipping address was the same as the billing. By clicking this check box the customers billing fields would be automatically copied to the shipping fields.

I hope that we can get some of these bugs worked out of X-cart soon. It's a great product!

Error message
When I tried to leave the shipping address blank, it gives me an error message.
( Please make sure you properly filled in all the required fields! )is the message I get if I don't put in the shipping address. Then, we have to fill it out twice... I am using X-Cart 4.0

Can someone help?

Possible solution...
Backup files first. Code works for me in v4.0.5

I've not tested it with a drop down menu for states/counties, but it should work ok.

I use an input box for the state/county field. When I change country, it resets the state field, but I can live with that.


1) Create a new file in the skin1 directory called copybilling.js
add this code:


<script language="JavaScript1.2">

function InitSaveVariables_shipping(form){
s_address = form.s_address.value;
s_address_2 = form.s_address_2.value;
s_city = form.s_city.value;
s_state = form.s_state.value;
_s_state = form._s_state.value;
s_country = form.s_country.value;
s_zipcode = form.s_zipcode.value;

function copybilling(form){
if (form.copyb.checked){
form.s_address.value = form.b_address.value;
form.s_address_2.value = form.b_address_2.value;
form.s_city.value = form.b_city.value;
form.s_state.value = form.b_state.value;
form._s_state.value = form._b_state.value;
form.s_country.value = form.b_country.value;
form.s_zipcode.value = form.b_zipcode.value;

else {
        form.s_address.value = "";
        form.s_address_2.value = "";
        form.s_city.value = "";
        form.s_state.value = form.b_state.value;
        form._s_state.value = "";
        form.s_country.value = form.b_country.value;
        form.s_zipcode.value = "";


2) in skin1/customer/home.tpl



<link rel="stylesheet" href="{$SkinDir}/{#CSSFile#}">

add this code


<script language=JavaScript1.3 src="{$SkinDir}/copybilling.js"></script>

3) find skin1/main/register_billing_address.tpl

After the last </TR>
add this code



{* ======== COPY BILLING TO SHIPPING MOD ======= *}
<TD align="right"></TD>
<TD nowrap>
<input type="checkbox" name="copyb" onclick=javascript:copybilling(this.form);>Use {$lng.lbl_billing_address} as {$lng.lbl_shipping_address}

{* ======== COPY BILLING TO SHIPPING MOD ======= *}



I would then change the language variable - lbl_shipping_address_registration



Shipping Address (leave empty if same as billing address)

to just


Shipping Address

This mod didn't work for me. I carefully followed the instructions but I'm getting an error on the checkout page both when the page loads and when I click on the 'Use Billing Address as Shipping Address' checkbox. I would appreciate help figuring out what is wrong. You can test it for yourself at http://www.inksticks.com/store

PhilJ 10-14-2004 06:33 AM

As I mentioned, I haven't tested it with drop down menus for the states field. I'll get back to you with a fix shortly.
