Custom login page

Hi,

I'm new to Rails. I'd like to have a customized login page for each
user. Just like Twitter how you go to www.twitter.com/username and you
can login from there. How do I do that? Thanks.

I'm not sure exactly how Twitter implemented their login page, but my
guess is that they are just styling the layout with CSS rules associated
to the user account.

If you want to have the username on the url like they have, you can use

map.connect ‘:username’, :controller => <controller_name>, :action => <action_name> and you will access the username via params[:username]

You will need to have that as one of the last entries in your routes file and you’ll have to be careful of usernames conflicting with your other controller paths
