Authlogic Administration

Hi guys,
i’ve created user authentication using Authlogic and it works like a
charm!! But how can i use authlogic to authorize my administrator so
that he can se a diffenent menu?
All admin controllers and views are i a separate folder app/admin.

Thanx in advance

You might like to use something like rails_authorization.

Hi Marmen,
and thanx for the fast response!
You say that i cant do admin authorize with Authlogic or is it better
to use rails_authorization instead Authlogic?? i have just inserted
Authlogic to my app and i dont want to change it again.
Thanx again

Hi,
I just set up acl9. It is very simple to set up, the syntax is simple
and nice. It depends how complex authorisation you want to use. I
found Acl9 to be refered as authorisation for simple cases… but as I
found it is possible to cover quite nice set of needs.

I’m saying that you probably want to use both. Authlogic takes care of
authentication, while rails_authorization deals with authorization.
They’re different concerns.

You probably don’t need to change that part.

Thanx again
