Problems w/ before_filter getting ignored
I'm setting up an authentication module that will be called from application.rb. I want to save a rrequest.request_uri into a session to be used as a place holder that
will take users back to the page they were on before they logged in. I'm trying to call the store_location method for all methods EXCEPT login by putting login in an except before filter.
For some reason, when I login the last request.request_uri address that is stored in the session is /login. For some reason, the store_location method is still getting called when the login method is called and then throws a "Redirect Loop" message in the brower
Here's the authentication module code:
session['return-to'] = request.request_uri
user = User.find_authenticated_user(params[:username], params[:password])
unless user.blank? || user.nil?
session[:user] = user
and here's the code I have so far in application.rb
Any ideas how I can make this work?
class ApplicationController < ActionController::Base
before_filter :verify_user, :except => :login
before_filter :store_location, :except => :login
helper :all # include all helpers, all the time
# See ActionController::RequestForgeryProtection for details
# Uncomment the :secret if you're not using the cookie session store
protect_from_forgery #:secret => 'f2966dd9b280aee941288062544d2aa9'
