Hi, I'm new to Rails. I'd like to have a customized login page for each user. Just like Twitter how you go to www.twitter.com/username and you can login from there. How do I do that? Thanks.

How do I do that? Thanks. I'm not sure exactly how Twitter implemented their login page, but my guess is that they are just styling the layout with CSS rules associated to the user account.
