Salted Login Generator glitch


#1

I followed the tutorial here
http://wiki.rubyonrails.com/rails/pages/SaltedLoginGeneratorQuickstart
and didn’t have any problems. Actionmailer is working fine. When I
sign up I get the email saying “Please click on the following link to
confirm your registration”
When I do i go to the default page with “Welcome. You are now logged
into the system…”
So I thought great, that was easy…

One glitch though. When I went to sign in with my new id and password I
got the message “Login unsuccessful” I have double checked I didnt make
a typo and have scanned through the controllers / models etc and can’t
see where its going wrong. Any ideas?

You need to set:
before_filter :login_required

in the UserController.

This sets a database field which is required for login. I had the same
problem.
