Newbie: Strange error when playing with the UserEngine


#1

Hi All,

When playing with the user engine, I’ve encountered the following.

When I want to “register for an account” everything goes ok…
But when I want to activate the account I end in an everlasting loop.

I’ve found that the code in the function “add_user_role” doesn’t work
properly, though
when I set :user_role_name to another name I do get an error in my
development log …

Any hints?

Kind regards,
Jeroen van Doorn

Sorry for the late reply,

Don’t have any strange chars in my url, I’ve made a new test app and
there it works ok …
As soon as I’ve found the error (probably my own mistake), I’ll report
what is was.

Regards,
Jeroen

Sorry to sound like I think everyone is running into the same bug, are
there by any chance any punctuation characters like hyphens in your
application’s root path? For example /usr/local/rails-stuff/appname …?

If that’s the case, there’s a one-line fix to a file in the Engines
plugin that solves this, and it’s just been fixed in the trunk, but not
in any of the release versions yet.

Well … found it, but I’m not proud :S

In the user model I added a has_many relation …
This isn’t a problem, only I added it before the includes

include LoginEngine::AuthenticatedUser
include UserEngine::AuthorizedUser

Never gonna make this mistake again…

It’s really strange …

The Code for both installations is the same …
The Database names (en content for the system roles) are the same
They are even running on the same server.

Program1 gets in an infinite loop, Program2 doesn’t

Shoot me!
