By default WooCommerce loads a special dropdown control into the checkout form to select your billing/shipping country. This can be nice since there can be a lot of countries in there and the added search field helps finding yours, but there are many cases where you’d rather disable it and use a default <select> control instead.
This could previously be achieved by dequeueing the select2 stylesheet/script, but since WooCommerce 3.2.0 they’ve included their own fork of select2 and named it “selectWoo”. So here’s an updated working snippet. Simply put it in your functions.php to see the effect.
