readme suggestion on "current_user"

Reported by Peter Zingg | November 17th, 2008 @ 08:11 PM

Suggestion for readme:

When talking about the "Or how about persisting the session..." stuff, use the idea frome the part "Automatic Session Updating" to make sure that when the session "object" is destroyed, the current_user_session and current_user get nil'ed out in a :before_destroy callback.

I'm assuming that's the right thing to do...

    It really depends on what you are doing after you destroy the session. I redirect the user to the login page, so there really is no reason to nil out the variable because a redirect occurs right after the destroy.

    But I see what you are saying the docs, I will clarify this. Thanks for pointing this out.
