Login and logout doesn't work in different actions


#1

Hi,I am trying to create a user autentication system. Normally the
user autentication system works fine but now i want to include the
login and logout in the header of the application. so that u can login
and logout in any part of the application

this it the weird part of the problem. let’s say i am in articles/
search then i login and logout there is no problem. but when i go to
articles/show i get

“action”=>“7”, “controller”=>“groceries”}

ActionController::UnknownAction (No action responded to 7):

which does not make sense cause the logout link is linked to
the :action :destroy

Next i try logging out in search and logging in inside :show and
logging out inside :show as well and everything works.


here is the Layout :

<%= stylesheet_link_tag ‘star’ %>
<%= javascript_include_tag :defaults, “jquery” %>

<%= render :partial => 'login_panel'%>
  <%= yield %>

Partial view “_login_panel.html.erb”:

<% if logged_in? && session[:user_id]%>
  <%= User.find(session[:user_id]).login %> ,you are logged in!  || 

<
%= link_to_remote “logout”, :url => {:controller =>
‘articles’, :action => ‘destroy’} %>

  <% else %>

<% form_remote_tag :url => {:controller => “articles”, :action =>
“create”} do %>
Login:
<%= text_field_tag :login, params[:login] %>

Password:
<%= password_field_tag ‘password’ %>

Remember me for 2 weeks:
<%= check_box_tag ‘remember_me’ %>

<%= submit_tag ‘Log in’ %>
<% end -%>

  <% end -%>

Articles controller:

class ArticlesController < ApplicationController

some page update here …

                render :update do |page|
    page.replace_html 'ratingdiv', :partial => 'grocery_with_rating'

                end
          }
        end

end

after more inspection i have found that it is the link_to_remote that
has lost its :url. it seems to be picking up the url of the action
page. Does anyone know why?


#4

Never mind i figured it out
