My first question is I am trying to decide between iPage and hostgator? Looking forward for any answer. Another question on my mind: How do you take out boxes you don't think are necessary in filling orders?..

I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the right answer. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I discover an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you an answer..

Comment #1

Well, the customer has to fill out a bunch of information while creating accounts. Let's just take Fax number. How do you remove that box all together? If I can do that I can probably do the others...

Comment #2

Just strip it out of create_account.php. It's not a required field though so what the big deal?.

Also, look at admin -> configuration -> customer details..

Comment #3

I searched for every occurrence of fax in create_account and tried to comment them out but no luck. Could you show before and after code snippets? BTW, taking out unnecessary boxes cuts back on clutter...

Comment #4

You're joking right?.

I don't have any need to remove it so why would I slog through the code for you? No offense but you're on your own...

Comment #5

Look for.

<td class="main"><?php echo ENTRY_FAX_NUMBER; ?></td>.

<td class="main"><?php echo tep_draw_input_field('fax')'&nbsp;'(tep_not_null(ENTRY_FAX_NUMBER_TEXT) ? '<span class="inputRequirement">'ENTRY_FAX_NUMBER_TEXT'</span>': ''); ?></td>.

You can either remove it all together or just comment it out...

Jeez someone's having a bad day - good luck with the mod Dakota...

Thanks for the info, but how do you make a field not being required anymore? I don't need to have country required for instance or at least make sweden the default in the drop down menu. Anyone?? Thanks, Markus!..

Comment #8

Search is your friend. The instructions are for making the US default but you can insert your country's number instead of the 223 for the US..

Default country dropdown instructions..

Comment #9

Mm, thank you very much but what if I don't want the phonenumber to be a required field anymore?..

Care to be a little more specific as to what exactly you think you should be removing?..
