I think the issue you're describing is this - please correct me if I'm wrong: * Savage beast contains a User class * Your application is trying to re-open the User class to add methods to it * However, when the application runs, none of your custom methods appear on the User class. If this is the case, it sounds like a fairly common thing. The key is that model classes are not (at the moment) automatically mixed in the same way that Controllers and Helpers are. Instead, you need to ensure that both the plugin class AND your application class is loaded. Your application's class should be higher in the load path, so if you "require 'user'", it should be that app/models/user.rb will be loaded, but you can check this put putting some 'puts' statements in to check. If everything is as expected, you should then be able to explicitly require the user class from the Savage Beast plugin at the top of this file, and then re-open the class to add your methods. It's possible that the Savage Beast plugin references its own User class explicitly before you have the chance to load the one in your application - again, puts statements will shine a light on what's going on behind the scenes.
