Is there a way to place a link (ie called Delete my account next to the Log out link in the Customer Navigation Account Dashboard?

I know there are paid extensions available for that but I'd like to know if it's possible by means of a simple module or via the local.xml?

  • have you got solution ?

For the Customer account navigation :

    <reference name="customer_account_navigation">
        <action method="addLink">
            <path>module/controller</path> //path to your controller function for deleting account
            <label>Delete my account</label>


The function in your controller

public function indexAction()
    $id = Mage::getSingleton('customer/session')->getCustomer()->getId‌​();
    $customer = Mage::getModel('customer/customer')->load($id);
  • Hi. Thanks for your answer. Maybe a little bit dummy, but is there a way to find out that path to the controller function for deleting the customer account? Not really an expert in this matter. Sep 14, 2017 at 9:40
  • Would you please add the controller code to answer.

  • Hello guys, this method seems to be quick and simple but still don't know what about controller. As there is in controller indexAction already, what to do with the code ? Where should I add this code to ? app/code/core/Mage/account/controllers/accountController.php ?
