Customer account activation form

The customer account activation form must be wrapped in the form tag with "activate_customer_password" as its parameter.

Within the form tag block, there should be two inputs of type password, one for the password and another for confirming the password. They must have the attributes name="customer[password]" and name="customer[password_confirmation]", respectively.

Here is an example code snippet of a customer account activation form:

 {% form 'activate_customer_password' %} {{ form.errors |
default_errors }}

<div class="password">
  <label for="password">Password</label>
  <input type="password" name="customer[password]" />
<div class="password_confirm">
  <label for="password_confirmation">Password Confirmation</label>
  <input type="password" name="customer[password_confirmation]" />
<div class="action_bottom">
  <input type="submit" value="Activate Account" />
  <input type="submit" name="decline" value="Decline Invitation" />

{% endform %}
