"Remember Me" feature


#1

I realize this has probably been asked on these forums before but I
wanted to get the latest information on what’s available.

We need to implement the typical “Remember Me” checkbox feature you find
for logins on various site.

What’s the best way to do this in Rails 1.2.x and 2.x? Should we use
cookies[] directly? Or, can I use session[]? We need this “remember
me” to be around for at least 2 weeks, maybe even forever (till they
logout).

Thanks.

Use cookies, enable the cookies for two weeks. Session should not be
used

You can look at how restful_authentication,
http://github.com/technoweenie/restful_authentication
does it and that should give you a clue.
