acts_as_authenticated, bad password

I just installed this and for the most part it works great, and all in
about 1/2 an hour! Nice. But I have just one small problem. I would
have expected an error message if login fails, but it just stays on
the login page. I tried adding an "else" to the login method of the
AccountController, but the flash message doesn't show up. I'm missing
something obvious here probably..

  def login
    return unless request.post?
    self.current_user = User.authenticate(params[:login],
params[:password])
    if logged_in?
      if params[:remember_me] == "1"
        self.current_user.remember_me
        cookies[:auth_token] = { :value =>
self.current_user.remember_token , :expires =>
self.current_user.remember_token_expires_at }
      end
      redirect_back_or_default(:controller => '/account', :action =>
'index')
      flash[:notice] = "Logged in successfully"
    else #my added code
      flash[:warning] = 'Login failed' #my added code
    end #my added code
  end

I think most default/scaffold views in Rails only show notices

e.g.
  flash[:notice]

You probably need to improve your flash message code to include :warning, this was discussed recently on this list.

Hi

Try it:

    if logged_in?
      if params[:remember_me] == "1"
        self.current_user.remember_me
        cookies[:auth_token] = { :value =>
self.current_user.remember_token , :expires =>
self.current_user.remember_token_expires_at }
      end
      redirect_back_or_default(:controller => '/home', :action => 'teste')
      flash[:notice] = "Login successfully"
    else
      flash[:notice] = "Login ou senha failed"
    end

If you really need flash[:warning] because some specific formatation in your
layout, you have change layout and add <%= flash[:warning] %>
