Hi, I'd like to define the root path of my site as the Users#Show action, therefore whenever someone goes to http://www.example.com they will see their own profile page. At the moment I have done this by having the following in my routes.rb file: # Home Page map.root :controller => 'users', :action => 'show' The Users controller then looks like: def show @user = current_user end This works with respect to showing each users profile page on the route page. However, if tries to go to http://www.example.com/users/anything they still see their profile page because I am setting @user to current_user no matter what the request. I need to return 404 pages when users go to: http://www.example.com/users/anything_other_than_their_id What is the correct way to do this? Thanks

In the controller, couldn't you look for/at params[:id] to see if the request was for a user other than themselves?
