I have an extension which needs to be on for some sites and off for others, however it is creating a page on all the sites even when disabled.

Is there a way for an extension to check if it is enabled for output for a specific store id?

I'm using:

 $enabled =  Mage::helper('core')->isModuleEnabled('Module_Name');

But this returns 1 if echoed out, as the module is enabled in general, therefore the hook is still making a page even if the output is disabled.

Updated code based on answer - but still rendering to the blank page:

    if(Mage::getStoreConfig('advanced/modules_disable_output/module_name',$store_id) == 35)
        $this->getResponse()->setHeader('HTTP/1.1','404 Not Found');
        $this->getResponse()->setHeader('Status','404 File not found');
public function canShowTab()
    return Mage::helper('Core')->isModuleEnabled('Vendor_Module');


if(Mage::getStoreConfig('advanced/modules_disable_output/module_name',$store_id) == 1)
    return false
   return true;
  • Hi, this is showing enabled because the extension is enabled in general - I need this on a store level. – Aravona Nov 23 '16 at 9:54
  • @Aravona, Check my updated answer – Ashish Jagnani Nov 23 '16 at 10:14
  • hi this does absolutely nothing and still causes the page to render blank. – Aravona Nov 23 '16 at 10:18
