I am using prototype to create modal popups for my login and register pages, but the fields are populating with the data from certain variables. For example, I have a show page that finds a user like so: @user = User.find(params[:id]) and my form uses: <% form_for :user, :url => users_path do |f| -%> so it is populating the form with the data from @user. Should I rename the @user variable, or is there a way to avoid the populating of the form? Thanks for any help.

You should be doing the find in the controller and calling the new method to return a new, empty object or the edit method to return an existing object. HTH, Bill
