  • @SukumarGorai Overrides should always be the last option. Better use observers and layout updates when possible.

You need to go to the following class:


You will find the whole code here. Override this Block class and put the conditions accordingly


you need to edit app\design\adminhtml\default\default\layout\customer.xml.

find <block type="adminhtml/customer_edit_tab_view_accordion" name="accordion" /> and comment it.

May be it will work for you

Contrary to all other answers, if you remove the entire accordion block, you will also remove the recent orders and wishlist accordion items, not just the cart ones.

You should overwrite the Mage_Adminhtml_Block_Customer_Edit_Tab_View_Accordion and comment out or remove the following code:

    // add shopping cart block of each website
    foreach (Mage::registry('current_customer')->getSharedWebsiteIds() as $websiteId) {
        $website = Mage::app()->getWebsite($websiteId);

        // count cart items
        $cartItemsCount = Mage::getModel('sales/quote')
            ->addFieldToFilter('parent_item_id', array('null' => true))
        // prepare title for cart
        $title = Mage::helper('customer')->__('Shopping Cart - %d item(s)', $cartItemsCount);
        if (count($customer->getSharedWebsiteIds()) > 1) {
            $title = Mage::helper('customer')->__('Shopping Cart of %1$s - %2$d item(s)', $website->getName(), $cartItemsCount);

        // add cart ajax accordion
        $this->addItem('shopingCart' . $websiteId, array(
            'title'   => $title,
            'ajax'    => true,
            'content_url' => $this->getUrl('*/*/viewCart', array('_current' => true, 'website_id' => $websiteId)),

Copy app/code/core/Mage/Adminhtml/Block/Customer/Edit/Tab/View/Accordion.php to app/code/local/Mage/Adminhtml/Block/Customer/Edit/Tab/View/Accordion.php and do your edits.
