simple configuration login, not using gem
The authentication we implemented in those episodes was fairly basic so in this episode we’ll add a couple of new features to make it better. First we’ll add a “Remember Me” checkbox to the login page so that users can choose to be logged in automatically then we’ll add a “Reset Password” link that will allow users who have forgotten their password to have it reset. We’ll implement these features by extending the application we wrote in episode 270. This application uses Rails 3.1 but what we’ll show here will work just as well in Rails 3.0.
