I need to disable all customer account related pages, like Account info, Edit addresses, change password for customers of a specific Magento store. Basically I want the customers on that specific store, to just login, register, view products and buy the same only.

And I also do not want to send any welcome email to customers who register on this store.

I tried to find the solution, but could only find solutions to hide the links, but some customers might end up opening them directly.

1 Answer 1


you can achieve this through xml.

         <reference name="left">
            <action method="unsetChild"><name>customer_account_navigation</name></action>

this is second solution if you want to to specific website

Step 1: Go to ( yourPackage/YourTemplate/customer/account/navigation.phtml )

Step 2: Replace the below line

<?php $count = count($links); ?>
<?php $_count = count($_links); /* Add or Remove Account Left
     $website_id = Mage::app()->getWebsite()->getId();
        if($website_id = 1):
      unset($_links['account']); /* Account Info */     
      unset($_links['account_edit']); /* Account Info */            
      unset($_links['tags']); /* My Tags */
      unset($_links['invitations']); /* My Invitations */
      unset($_links['reviews']);  /* Reviews */
      unset($_links['wishlist']); /* Wishlist */
      unset($_links['newsletter']); /* Newsletter */
      unset($_links['orders']); /* My Orders */
      unset($_links['address_book']); /* Address */
      unset($_links['enterprise_customerbalance']); /* Store Credit */
      unset($_links['OAuth Customer Tokens']); /* My Applications */
      unset($_links['enterprise_reward']); /* Reward Points */
      unset($_links['giftregistry']); /* Gift Registry */
      unset($_links['downloadable_products']); /* My Downloadable Products */
      unset($_links['recurring_profiles']); /* Recurring Profiles */
      unset($_links['billing_agreements']); /* Billing Agreements */
      unset($_links['enterprise_giftcardaccount']); /* Gift Card Link */
?>Navigation Links Here -*/
  • can you tell me how to do it for specific store/website only? Dec 8, 2015 at 5:02
  • you can use second solution for that... Dec 8, 2015 at 5:08
  • can you please explain exactly what that does? it will not display the links or if I even type the links directly into browser, it wont let customer use them? Moreover cant we add some website id or name in xml you had provided first? Dec 8, 2015 at 5:19
  • it will not display the link. for permanent disable you have to override the controller. and you use helper="mymodule/canShowIf" in you action to conditional remove. Dec 8, 2015 at 5:26
