I have created an event and want to collect the attendees address including the county. Although based in the UK, the available options registering on the event page only offer a couple of American ones. Can this be changed to UK ones? There are UK options when you create a new contact on CIVI.
I tend to avoid using the drop down field for counties in the UK since - unlike States in the USA, or Departments in France, for example - there is no one true definition for them (is it London, Greater London, Islington, etc.).
Instead, I remove the county drop down and add another supplemental address line if required.
Although there are some forms on the web that use a drop down for counties, I suspect more than half just use a standard text field.
Flippant side note: the important thing to collect for UK addresses is the awesome UK postcode. As soon as you have that, everything else pales into insignificance :)
Add 'State' into the CiviCRM profile that's being used in the event. Be sure to also include the country field.
Remove county from the profile, this is what is confusing the matter. County in CiviCRM terminolgy means a US State county, State applies to County for the UK.
The field name 'State' can be renamed to County.
