No re-enter password

Hi. Currently I’m developing a web application with users and sessions.

I need avoid the users re-enter the password, something such as clear
the redirect_to(:back) when log in is successful. Several sites use this
system (Facebook, in example). I don’t know if I must clear the history
(?), because when I use the ‘back’ in the web browser the rails
controller doesn’t interpose.

I need your help.

Thanks.

Hi,

You shouldn’t try to clear the browser history (you can’t).
Instead, when someone visits the login page your controller should
redirect to the home screen if that user is already logged in.

Also, use authlogic and watch the railscast on how to use it. That
should show you the right way.

Hope this helps!
