Post by PyroTech03 » Sat Dec 24, 2011 7:34 am and been looking for a cart for some time. I think Opencart will work, but need to change the profile fields allowed.

The reason I need a store is "unconventional" at best. I won't be doing any actual money trade.

I'm setting up a "store" for the sale of good's inside a game. As such, the fields requiring first/last name, address, city/state, and zip code aren't needed.

I figure the easiest thing to do is to change the state/contry info to fit the game. So that it adds some additional functionality for me.

So what I need is this,
Original Field --- New Field
First Name --- Character Name*
Last Name --- Removed
E-Mail --- Same*
Fax --- Removed

Company --- Same
Address 1 --- Station*
Address 2 --- Removed
City --- Removed
Post Code --- Removed
Country --- Region*
Region/State --- System*
Stared value's would need to be required.

If someone can tell me the edits needed to pretty much simply change the labels, I can do them. Just I have no idea where to start looking. I had found this guide, but it didn't seem like it was current for

Outside of custom fields being a total pain, opencart seems like it's going to do everything that I need.

Thanks in advanced for any help/info anyone can provide :)

You'll need to edit the checkout template files to remove the fields. You can find it in
Catalog / view / theme / <your theme> / checkout /

To change the name of fields you'll need to edit the language file in
Catalog / language / English / checkout /

You will also probably have to modify the controller file to remove some of the required fields in the validate function
Catalog / controller / checkout /
