I basically want to disable this section where it asks the logged in user whether "Select a billing address from your address book or enter a new address."
I have tried removing the condition in billing.phtml but then it will just appear blank. I need it to take the logged in user to the exact same process as guest users (display the billing form automatically).
Here is the condition in billing.phtml:
<?php if ($this->customerHasAddresses()): ?> <li class="wide"> <label for="billing-address-select"><?php echo $this->__('Select a billing address from your address book or enter a new address.') ?></label> <div class="input-box"> <?php echo $this->getAddressesHtmlSelect('billing') ?> </div> </li> <?php endif; ?>
I'm sure there is more than just removing this block of code...
