Upgraded to 4.7 from 4.6.11 today. Importing contacts containing any value for State field results in an error for that field. Tried abbreviations and full values. Entering that info on a contact manually works OK though. I have since figured out how to import States, had to constrain the localization settings to the particular country I am importing, then change it over for each country - it's pretty tedious
Perhaps this has to do with another issue for Country list in localization (Contact Address fields-Selection Values). If I clear this field it populates United States after saving. Would like to include all countries in the list but can't make it stick. For a temporary workaround I have set to a single country (Australia) but that doesn't meet the requirements.
Attempting to run a contact report delivers the following warning message:
Warning: htmlspecialchars() expects parameter 1 to be string, array given in /wp-content/plugins/civicrm/civicrm/packages/HTML/Common.php on line 144
there are a couple more lines to the error but they all refer back to the same line in common.php
