  1. In your post I missed the way on adding the link ‘Delete My Account’.
    How can I achieve this?

  2. Your tutorial starts good when mentioning that it is never a good idea to edit Magento core files, but immediately after that it becomes very vague and sloppy! Can you please stick to a typical step-by-step tutorial explaining where to create what and how? Only the last step (Last thing we need to do is create layout xml file in app/design/frontend/default/default/layout/inchoo_core.xml:) was in detail.
    Here is what I mean:
    For start we’ll have to edit our config.xml file, we have to rewrite Magento’s core file. where? how?
    Next we have to define our layout xml file: where?
    Next step would be to create Block/Customer/Account/Navigation.php with following class: please specify a more detailed path?

    Thank you

  4. Hi, i always use this module in my projects. that’s very useful. I would like to install it with composer. Are there a repository? can i sent you a pull request or can I fork the module? tnx! Irene

  5. Hii Sola, Good post

    how to change the label name for example I need to change “Account Dashboard” to “Dashbord”. How it posiible..?

    Please help me .. please mail the solution

    Thanking you in advance

    1. hi sibin,
      open this file :
      app\design\frontend\base\default\template\customer\account\dashboard.phtml or

      find this :

      __(‘Account Dashboard’) ?>

      (mine line 29)
      you can change Account Dashboard to Dashboard

  6. Are you sure this is the right way to achieve this? I do not. Why we need to override/extend Magento’s blocks when we can use event-observer architecture to get the same result without touching any core class or conflicting with any third party module which also uses it (even it is bad)?
