I am trying to develop an application that uses STI for People. So you
have customer < person, admin < person. I have also created a login
controller with accompanying simple login page (un & pw fields).
username = params[:username]
password = params[:password]
if username.nil? || password.nil? || username==password redirect_to :action => "login" flash[:notice] = 'Unknown user or invalid password'
session[“user_id”] = username
redirect_to :controller => “customers”, :action => “index”
Currently it just checks if something is entered into the boxes to test
that it works. I have created a register page that adds a record to the
database table people an email address, hashed password, and salt. What
i want to do is check these when a user enters a username and password
in the login page but am not quite sure what to do.
I currently only have customer and admin controllers. Do i need to
create a people controller? or can i reference the database from the
Any help would be great !!!
