Address format

List of international address formats by country.


There are at default five different address formats which can be selected from Admin > Locations/Taxes > Countries under Address format.


Here are the explanations of each format included with a stock install:


Default address formats

Adding a new address format

The only thing you need to do in order to add a new address format, is to insert a new row into the address_format table.


Info about the available variables.


For example, insert this SQL statement from Admin > Tools > Install SQL Patches

INSERT INTO address_format 
(address_format, address_summary) 
VALUES ('$firstname $lastname$cr$streets$cr$postcode $city', 
'$city / $country');

This would add a new format which looks like this:

Firstname Lastname
Address line 1
<optional second address line>
Postcode City

This would be accessed as the sixth address format, assuming you only have the five default ones already.
