I’m setting up an authentication module that will be called from
application.rb. I want to save a rrequest.request_uri into a
session to be used as a place holder that
will take users back to the page they were on before they logged in.
I’m trying to call the store_location method for all methods EXCEPT
login by putting login in an except before filter.
For some reason, when I login the last request.request_uri address that
is stored in the session is /login. For some reason, the
store_location method is still getting called when the login method is
called and then throws a “Redirect Loop” message in the brower
Here’s the authentication module code:
module Authentication def store_location session['return-to'] = request.request_uri end def login user = User.find_authenticated_user(params[:username], params[:password]) unless user.blank? || user.nil? session[:user] = user end redirect_to store_location end end and here's the code I have so far in application.rb
class ApplicationController < ActionController::Base before_filter :verify_user, :except => :login before_filter :store_location, :except => :login include Authentication helper :all # include all helpers, all the time # See ActionController::RequestForgeryProtection for details # Uncomment the :secret if you're not using the cookie session store protect_from_forgery #:secret => 'f2966dd9b280aee941288062544d2aa9' def index end end
Any ideas how I can make this work?
