E: Overloading controller


Thanks for the notes. I actually don’t want Guest to be able to
signup. That’s the point of me overriding the signup method. I would
like to change the default warning from “You need to login” to
“Contact Sean for a login”.

I’d like to do this without copying and pasting either signup.rhtml or
the signup method from user_controller.rb. Both of these solutions
seem to violate the DRY philospohy.

Maybe there’s a bigger Engines issue here, the ability to call the
engine’s method specifically from my own controller. Right now, I
don’t see a way to do this other than by calling alias.
