I’ve been having a problem. I have an application layout and a users controller. All the methods, but forgot_password, must use the application layout. So, I added below the class declaration the following line: class UsersController < ApplicationController layout ‘login’, :only => [:forgot_password] The problem is: if I write down that layout line, all methods but forgot_password will have no layout. I cannot use render :layout => ‘forgot_password’ into the forgot_password method because it already has a render call. I tried the following code it also didn’t work. class UsersController < ApplicationController layout ‘login’, :only => [:forgot_password] layout ‘application’, :except => [:forgot_password] Does anybody have any suggestion to apply the login layout to the forgot_password method and the application to the other ones? Thanks in advance.

I think you need to move the layout statement into the :forgot_password method. all the other methods will then use application
