NoMethodError in User sessionsController#new

I'm setting up authentication with Authlogic and I get this error.
I've done some searching but with no success. I tried setting the
current_user method in Application_controller to protected and not
private, on the recommendation in Stack Overflow.

Hi Kevin

If I am getting it right then
you haven't declared require_no_user in your application controller.
haven't set up it before_filter in application controller.

Please paste your code so that I can solve your problem precisely.

Here's the code.

class ApplicationController < ActionController::Base
  filter_parameter_logging :password, :password_confirmation
    helper_method :current_user_session, :current_user

      def current_user_session
        return @current_user_session if defined?
        @current_user_session = UserSession.find

      def current_user
        return @current_user if defined?(@current_user)
        @current_user = current_user_session &&


Hi Kevin,

You have't defined require_user and require_no_user in your
application controller.
Please define them first.
Go through the authlogic's tutorial. Everything is defined there
if you don't find it there then I'll get out of this error.

Hope you are enjoying RoR.

Thanks for your help. I fixed that and figured out another one myself.

I hope to enjoy it more, but it looks promising.
