    Greetings,

    I am wanting to establish a before filter in my controller that checks to see if a user is authenticated and redirects them to the login page if they are not. In rails it's quite trivial. Based on how rails works, I would have expected it to be something like this:

    class PageController extends ApplicationController
    {
    var $before_filter = "_authenticate";

    function _authenticate()
    {
    do_some_stuff();
    }
    }

    No matter what I try, I can't get before filters to work in any fashion. Any tips?

    jereme,

    I agree with you that

    var $before_filter = "_authenticate";
    

    function __construct()
    {
        $this->beforeFilter('_authenticate');
    }
    

    Hope it helps
