I would second Paulie's suggestion that you use Devise. However if you are
still looking to do it yourself, I would suggest that you at least look at
the "confirmable" model in the Devise source. It will help you understand
the approach the Devise team took to solve this problem. You can find it

This should help you see the big picture and then you can slim it down to
just the functionality you feel is necessary for your app. This is one of
the great advantages to open source!

Hey I have took a look at devise but most of my authentication has now
been done through actual code rather than relying on gems. I was hoping
for a non gem option as it is also a lot more beneficial in the sense of
experience and getting to know rails.

Any ideas of what would be possible. I have looked at the rails cast for
reset password. I just need to look at authentication for confirming
user creation by clicking on a link in an email. I heard something about
a confirmed column in the database?
