How exactly do i redirect a user if they're not logged in? I have a cookie being written to the @session variable on login and I can pull info from it. For instance "@session['user'].login" pulls their username just fine. But if they type in the url of the "welcome" page without logging in I get "You have a nil object when you didn't expect it!" which I would expect. Instead of this nasty error message, how would I redirect them to the login page?

Probably something like if session['user'].nil? redirect_to whatever end You would probably want to make this into a filter, too

It worked! It's too simple I think that's the problem. It's amazing what 5 hours of coding will do to the hum brain. Thanks.
