Without know more about what you want to do, the answer is probably
not… if you want to add parameters to a method, you’ll have to

Thanks. I was looking into super. I thought I could call that, but
my user_controller is not a child of the login engine’s. Oh well.


FYI: I use the alias_method which seems to work well.

alias_method :orig_login, :login

Then I can do my stuff and call orig_login from the login_engine.
