Hi Hikashop,

The core custom field Middle Name is not existing in the view on frontend and backend.
So you have to edit the address_template.php view (which provides extra maintenance after every update).

We love Hikashop, and we think that this feature make it better for the basic users.

Is there a reason why it's not standard in the address_template.php view from address? Because for beginners it's hard to find out why the core fields are not present in the front and backend when they publish them.

This issue also applies to _street2

Just our 2 cents ;-)

Kind regards,
Lumiga

Hi,

It's not standard in address template because by default these fields are unpublished.
If we added them by default in the address template and you didn't publish them, then you would get extra spaces in the address display for no reason by default in HikaShop.
And we can't add them dynamically to the address template when you publish them since we don't know where you want to place them.
It's actually quite easy to edit the address template since HikaShop 3. You don't need to go in the menu Display>Views anymore.
You directly have a setting in the HikaShop configuration under the checkout tab for that.
So it should be a lot more obvious for beginners to find that.
In fact, we've had a lot less questions on that since we've added the setting in the HikaShop configuration.

Hi Nicolas,

Thanks for your answer.

Good to know that we can use the new option in the configuration.
I didn't know that it was as fast way to create a override for the address template.

Thanks!
