Hi, I just made some modifications to the RForum User model that I think others might find interesting. I've modified it to use the same authorization scheme as acts_as_authenticated, so integrating the forum with another stand alone app - or just sharing database and user details with another app - is made easy. The modification is made to RForum 0.2 and can be downloaded as a zip from http://clanwhiskey.net/bobfunk/rforum_modification.zip The zip consists of the new user model, a new migration to add a salt column to the user table and some new user fixtures for testing. Just replace the exisisting files in a fresh rforum install with the ones in the zip to make the modification. Now it should be very easy to integrate RForum with any app using acts_as_authenticated and the authentication method should also be a bit more secure (SHA1 instead of MD5 and a salted). Enjoy! Mathias
