Hi,

I would like to know what the most popular plugins people are using
for creating membership accounts and authenticating their login?

Thanks,


Kind Regards,

The big one seems to be AuthLogic.

You can also evaluate Ryan B.’ “cancan” -

Cancan is for authorization, not authentication.

Thanks Marmen for the clarification for authentication vs authorization.

Not sure about ‘quote when replying’ part, I am kind of new to forum. I
reply using gmail, things looks fine when I do the reply.
Am I missing something?

Thanks

Yes. Gmail normally quotes the text you’re replying to. You should
leave that in there, suitably trimmed, as I’m doing in this response;
reply to each point immediately after. That way it’s easy to figure out
what you meant. (This is also the proper way to reply to non-list
e-mail messages, BTW.)

Thanks

Thanks everyone for the input, AuthLogic and devise both look
promising, if anyone has {other} links to blogs & tutorials for these
two plugin please provide.

The one tutorial for AuthLogic I’ve found is:

http://github.com/binarylogic/authlogic_example

I am leaning toward using devise and have found a sample tutorial here:

i looove devise, it has everything.
