Rails for Beginners Part 20: Forgot Your Password Discussion

Hi Chris, is there a particular reason the create a different controller for each route action?


I'm at a complete loss as to the difference between Current.user and @user, and when to use which one. Can anyone shed light on that for me? Thanks.

Ahhh. Took a while but I eventually realized that if you forgot your password you aren't logged in, there isn't a session cookie, and Current.user isn't of any use. Duh. :-/


I really these love this series


Thank you very much, Chris! I'm learning a lot. It doesn't feel like it's only an 8 min video. You can deliver a huge amount of useful information in a few minutes.
