Hello,

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:
Code:
module Authentication
  def store_location
    session['return-to'] = request.request_uri
  end
  
  def login
    user = User.find_authenticated_user(params[:username], params[:password])    
    unless user.blank? || user.nil?
      session[:user] = user
    end
    redirect_to store_location 
  end
end

and here's the code I have so far in application.rb
Code:
class ApplicationController < ActionController::Base
  
  before_filter :verify_user, :except => :login
  before_filter :store_location, :except => :login
  
  include Authentication
  
  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'
  
  def index
  end
end
Any ideas how I can make this work?

Thanks,
Clem
