Fun Postcodes to Use When Testing

Started this discussion. Last reply by Ash Winter Nov 29, 2013. 22 Replies

When testing forms which contain a postcode field I usually use a postcode from a significant landmark. This can be anything. For example, I often use W1J 7NT. This is Apsley House in London, and…Continue
