Overview

Customer Activation

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

Please open an issue on github if you encounter any problems.

It was designed to be used together with the Netzarbeiter_LoginCatalog extension. Netzarbeiter_LoginCatalog only shows products to customers that are logged in.
There also is the Extension Netzarbeiter_GroupsCatalog2 which may suit your needs better, you have to evaluate yourself what is the best solution for your case.

You can disable the Extension on a global or website level using the options found under System > Configuration > Customer > Customer Activation

You can select email notifications for the admin (when a new customer registers) and for the customer (when her account has been activated).
Sample email templates in english, german and italian are provided.

KNOWN BUGS: - None :D

About the Developer

This extension was developed by and is supported by Vinai

Customer Activation 4.1 5 78 78
Works as advertised (Magento CE 1.5.0.1). Great extension. Thank you very much. August 16, 2011
Looking for that but need it to run under 1.5.1 with Connect Manager 2.0. Would be great if you could update this! August 11, 2011
Cannot get this extension to work on Community ver. 1.5.0.1. Installed fine via Magento Connect. Used the 2.0 version. I can see where to activate customers on the back-end, but nothing happens once activated. Extension does not work. Developer has been unresponsive. We would be happy to pay to get this extension working, but we cannot get any response from the developer. We have a website that cannot activate customers? Not good. Off to look for other solutions. July 21, 2011
i installed this on 1.3 :) not working... is it possible to get it to work on 1.3 and 1.5.0.1? anyone? Thanks June 30, 2011
it's great extentions but i can't not get it to work on the the latest version... it wont let activated customer login :(... any help please advice June 4, 2011
I've used this extension once before on community v. 1.4.1.0 and it works. However, I just installed it on community 1.5.0.1 and I cannot get it to work. For example, "Is activated" is not available in Customers/Manage Customers/Account Information? The option is simply not on the screen. I would like some help on this please, if anyone knows what I need to do to fix it? Like I said, it works on 1.4, but not on 1.5? Thanks so much! Vin? May 23, 2011
Extension looks great. Had a little trouble installing, but seems to be working well installed along side the "private store" extension on 1.5.1. Thank you. May 12, 2011
Thank you for this great extension and your tutorials in t3n May 5, 2011
Thank you so much for this free extension. SUPER EASY to implement. Works like a charm on 1.5.0.1 April 6, 2011
We have installed this extension on a couple sites and it has worked great, we love the ease and functionality! But we have just install it on our latest project and the tab/section Configuration gt; Customers gt; Customer Configuration gt; Customer Activation is not showing up, can you shed any light on this for us?

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.

Hello I have a magento shop with 2 websites. I need to install/activate the extension only for one of the 2 websites. Can I do this from admin panel or should I change inside the code?

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

Since installing this extension, I cannot view individual customer information. When I go to Manage Customers and then click on an individual customer (regardless of type), I receive the following error:
