Hi all, I cannot get this to work at all .. it never does the redirect. I have two authentication cookies set ... Rails reads thier values fine if they exist If they don't exist, I want to redirect the user to the login page -- which is not a rails controller/model ....(single sign on location) I figured I'd add the code to the application_helper ... so that I could reference it in all my views. module ApplicationHelper def ifLoggedIn() useridcookie=cookies[:UserID] usersessioncookie=cookies[:usersession] if (!useridcookie) redirect_to "http://loginpage.html" end if (!usersessioncookie) redirect_to http://loginpage.html end end end ----- in my view (list.rhtml), I call <% ifLoggedIn() %> right at the top Any help much appreciated! -- Chris

Well, in the example you posted, you don't have quotes around the second "http://loginpage.html/"... though maybe that's just a error in copying. Other than that, maybe try some logging in there to see what's happening... b PS: Oh, one more thing... I think most people usually do their logged in check in the ApplicationController (application.rb) and hook it up as a before_filter for all their actions. That way you won't have to put ifLoggedIn in every single view.
