Question on login generators, plugins


#1

Not sure if I want to build my own or use something already built that’s
out
there.
This is the first step in my project though and a major one, so some of
my
requirements would be:
1-The ability for a user to register themselves
2-Email / link activation
3-Access levels (or ACL control - I think they are basically the same).
4-The ability to track users either through session or cookies (or
both).

If I build my own (being a ror newb) are there any good pointers for
getting
started on a reg / login system ?

My apologies as this has most likely been discussed before but things
change
so I’m asking.

TIA
Stuart

You can use the following
Engine
Login Generator Engine
User Engine
this will cover all your needs
