US States list for CCK select boxes

Average: 3.9 (14 votes)

When defining Content Types in Drupal with the Content Construction Kit you are able to add select boxes to them with CCK. It takes its
key/value pairs in this format: Key|Value. One of the most common tasks for this is to create a drop down list of US States. So to save folks some time, I have compiled a list for you to paste right into your own projects. The attached text file will give you US States in the expected format.

Hopefully this will save others a bit of typing when you need such a list for your own Drupal projects. Enjoy!

This is great! I was looking for a dropdown list of states and was starting to think that I'd have to hand-type them all out - thanks for providing this - what a time saver!

Hi 'Guest'

When creating a new field, you have the option of making it a select list. The text file is in the format that this field requires. Just paste it in and it will be populated correctly.

This is just what I was

This is just what I was looking for but how does one get this into CCK and out again as a dropdown?

This just saved my butt again

This just saved my butt again - not for CCK, but just because I remembered there was a list matching state shortcodes to state names.

The only one I got wrong was Nebraska (NE), other than that, I am 98% state-competent.

I'm glad you found it

I'm glad you found it useful. I was surprised not to see one out there, and after a little command line magic to format the list into the CCK style, I figured I'd post it out there to save some others the time.

And thanks for linking to your list, I've bookmarked it for future reference.

This is a convenient list, thanks! I hope that others will find it before building it themselves. In all the time and all the CCK forms I've built, I don't think I've actually built a list of states in the US.

I've shared a different kind list but for the same reason. It's a list of domains (for Drupal's 'access' table) to help prevent user accounts from using throwaway email addresses from services like Mailinator and Spam Gourmet.
