I'd like to play with order and layout of the address fields on the New Individual form. I understand that in the localisation setting s this can be achieved but I am not having any luck with the for a NEW individual/contact. Is there not a .php file that i can edit the HTML output and manually rearrange the order of the fields? Is this the best approach? Thanks, Joe.
I would recommend you create a little jQuery to move the fields around (something like you see here: template jQuery example)
And then place the created template with jQuery on the appropriate form (which will probably be
CRM_Contact_Form_Edit_Address) using the alterContent hook (something like what you see here: alterContext hook example
Although this is not exactly what you want, it shows the approach. Does that help or is the confusion only growing?
