This small extension makes it impossible for a customer to log in to magento, until the account has been activated in the adminhtml interface: Customers > Manage Customers > (select customer) > Account Information > Is activated

About the Developer

This extension was developed by and is supported by Vinai

Customer Activation 4.2 5 76 76
Really useful extension I have used this extension previously on a 1.4 installation and found it really useful. This time I installed it on Community 1.8.1 Still a really useful extension. When I installed it via Magento Connect, the Customer/Customer Configuration screen came up blank. However, a quick search found that the developer has made the source available as a zip file so I downloading the zip file and just copied the files across manually which solve the problem. Don't let the above put you off using this extension as it is very useful. I purely posted this info in case someone else has the same issue and save you contacting the developer who has been kind enough to give this away for free. Great work Guys. Thanks! June 22, 2014
Problem in 1.8.1 I have used this with 1.8.1 and there is installation problem June 19, 2014
very helpful this a very easy and helpful extenuation.and very simple to use. March 5, 2014
It's a very good extension Hello guys, I am use this extension. it's really good. I recommended it if you really need active and inactive feature for your store customer from the admin end. February 26, 2014
Its Awesome You have saved my one day effort, Very much useful thanks friend February 5, 2014
Useful Extension but have a bug This extension is very good. But I find one issue in that. Its not working correctly on the multistore setup. Can't able to disable or enable for specific store. Is there any way to do it ? January 10, 2014
Works as expected / very fast support Customer Activation is a great module and works as described. January 8, 2014
Installation easy This is the second extension from Vinai that I have successfully installed without any issues. Both have worked as described and both follow coding standards so as to not conflict with other extensions and core functions. I also love FREE! December 20, 2013
great extension I have been using this extension for 3 years now. it is build professionally like a core magento app. December 1, 2013
Problem with Magento 1.7.0.2 Hi Vinai. You extension is great. I've tested it both on 1.7.0.2 and 1.8. Unfortunately now I'm facing an issue on 1.7.0.2 and frankly speaking, I'm not sure if it is only related to your extension. Here's the problem. On login page I press "Create an Account". I fill registration form and submit. At this point I'm redirected to index.php/customer/account/createpost/ where I get a white page. If I do a reload of current page, I'm redirect to "My Dashboard" page. That is I'm in even though I'm not an activated customer. On 1.8 everything works as expected. Can you help? October 31, 2013

Hi,
I've installed this extension but can't get it to work.
If i try to make a new account, I get the next three errors:

"Email" is not a valid hostname.

'<emailhost>.com' appears to be a DNS hostname but cannot match TLD against known list

'<emailhost>.com' appears to be a local network name but local network names are not allowed

I have absolutely no idea what either of these are supposed to mean.
------------------------
Secondly I would like to say that the activation/confirmation option is rather confusing. On a customer page in the admin, there was already a drop-down box "Is confirmed?" with the options "Confirmed" and "Not confirmed". This extension has apparently added a second box "Is activated" (->yes/no), but why? Why not using the "Is confirmed?" one that was already there anyway?
------------------------
Also, where can I see/change the e-mail address where the notification (of someone registering) gets sent to?

Answer: 
Hi,

first, the email checks have nothing to do with the extension.
Second, the email confirmation is part of the core Magento functionality and can also be configured in the system configuration.
Third, the email where the admin notification is sent can be configured in the modules system configuration options. The customer notification (if enabled) is sent to the customers email address.

Answer: 
I tried to activate the Customer Activation only for one website from admin panel Customer-> Customer Configuration but I got the following error: Fatal error: Call to a member function toOptionArray()

I solved it by changing line 158 from <source_model>adminhtml/system_config_source_customer_group_multiselect</source_model> to <source_model>adminhtml/system_config_source_customer_group</source_model> as I do not have the multiselect model

Answer: 
You can customize that message using the Magento localization features. Simply add the text you want to a theme translate.csv file or in the core_translate database table.

I was wondering where we could change the text/message that displays after the customer is registered and confirmed but not yet activated? It currently just says "This account is not activated." but I wanted to include more information on getting it activated. Thanks!

We have set 4 customer groups to require customer activation and general customer does NOT require activation. The problem is that even when General Customer account is created, the user is not activated, but they should be because we did not select that group to require activation. How do we fix this?

I installed this plugin in 1.8 CE. When I try to register, it gives me 500 Internal Server Error. "The website encountered an error while retrieving http://advertisingmos.com/hosting/dhvision/index.php/customer/account/createpost/. It may be down for maintenance or configured incorrectly."
Once I disable the extension, I don't get this error and able to register.
Any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks
