What do you expert Radiant + Rails app developers do to display embedded ruby in your layouts, snippets, or pages? I'm using the rails_support extension and want to display some program variables in my layout, like the logged in user and his role. Thanks! Steve

I don't care for it, but there is the "backdoor" extension which allows ERb inside Radiant pages. Most often I find the seeming need for ERb represents one or more of these situations: 1) The user isn't familiar enough existing tags or with manipulating the content structure. 2) A few new tags could fulfill the need very easily. 3) What is really wanted is a custom controller that has its own logic and views. For example, you could wrap the "process_page" method in SiteController so that it assigns the current_user onto the page that is being rendered, then access that variable from some Radius tags. Sean

I have no idea why I found the following post **after** I posted this reply. Looks like this should do the trick. http://lists.radiantcms.org/pipermail/radiant/2008...
