I am having some problems with the New Order Status in Magento CE

When I try to set the new order status for every payment method. The dropdown in blank.


enter image description here

Check / Money Order Check

This has the effect of all orders except pending payment having a blank order status.

I have no idea how to sort this issue can anyone give me some advice.

I can see all order statuses in the admin enter image description here

  • Are the statuses assigned to state codes? Can't tell from the screenshot... it would be indicated in the right-most columns in the grid.
