    Hello, I have implemented the Snippet below to change US state names to their abbreviations. There seems to be an issue with Washington, District of Columbia. Maybe you can help. Everything seems to be working properly with the states, but I noticed Washington, District of Columbia (DC) is displaying as “WA, DC” instead of “Washington, DC” as it should.

    Since the US also has a state named Washington, I can see why that might be happening but is there something in the Snippet below that can limit the output to Region (state) only? In this case it seems to be replacing the city name as well as the state when it should only be replacing the state.

    add_filter('geodir_custom_field_output_address','_my_short_state_geodir_cf_address',11,3);
    
    function _my_short_state_geodir_cf_address($html,$location,$cf){
    
    	// we add the >NAME< so we only replace the regions and not the region name in a street address.
    	$state_long = array(
    		">Alabama<",
    		">Alaska<",
    	        ">Arizona<",
    		">Arkansas<",
    		">California<",

    Hi Foster,

    I have changed the snippet a bit to allow it only for states.

    
    add_filter('geodir_custom_field_output_address','_my_short_state_geodir_cf_address',11,3);
    
    function _my_short_state_geodir_cf_address($html,$location,$cf){
    	// we add the >NAME< so we only replace the regions and not the region name in a street address.
    	$state_long = array(
    		'addressRegion">Alabama<',
    		'addressRegion">Alaska<',
    		'addressRegion">Philadelphia<',
    	    'addressRegion">Arizona<',
    		'addressRegion">Arkansas<',
