I'm trying to modify my registration form on Magento removing the firstname, lastname and the password confirmation.

At the moment I've changed the "is_required" in the "eav_attribute" table for FirstName and LastName (not sure if there is something also for the password confirmation).

I've updated the code here

public_html/ec/app/design/frontend/typologancee/default/template/customer/form register.phtml

in order to remove the 3 fields from the UI

I've removed the code

['validate-cpassword', 'Please make sure your passwords match.', function(v) {
    var conf = $('confirmation') ? $('confirmation') : $$('.validate-cpassword')[0];
    var pass = false;
    if ($('password')) {
        pass = $('password');
    var passwordElements = $$('.validate-password');
    for (var i = 0; i < passwordElements.size(); i++) {
        var passwordElement = passwordElements[i];
        if (passwordElement.up('form').id == conf.up('form').id) {
            pass = passwordElement;
    if ($$('.validate-admin-password').size()) {
        pass = $$('.validate-admin-password')[0];
    return (pass.value == conf.value);



I removed

if (!Zend_Validate::is( trim($this->getFirstname()) , 'NotEmpty')) { $errors[] = Mage::helper('customer')->__('The first name cannot be empty.'); }

    if (!Zend_Validate::is( trim($this->getLastname()) , 'NotEmpty')) {
        $errors[] = Mage::helper('customer')->__('The last name cannot be empty.');



Now I'm still getting an error during the registration:

Please make sure your passwords match.

Also changing

$confirmation = $this->getPasswordConfirmation(); if ($password != $confirmation) { $errors[] = Mage::helper('customer')->__('Please make sure your passwords match.'); }


$confirmation = $this->getConfirmation(); if ($password != $confirmation) { $errors[] = Mage::helper('customer')->__('Please make sure your passwords match.'); }

nothing happen. Do you have idea on how to solve this?

Ok, problem resolved :) I had just to remove the last part about the confirmation and not update it.
