This screencast is the third in a series utilizing CodeIgniter 2 (Reactor) and PHP ActiveRecord. I'm fundamentally focusing on PHP ActiveRecord due to the dramatic improvement it provides over raw CI models. I'm using Sparks (getsparks.org) in order to install extensions that will be used throughout this series as I think that it's a system with merit that should be utilized at every opportunity.
In this episode we'll use the user model that we created to enable our users to login to our site. We'll refactor the user model a bit, extend the CI_Controller class, and create the forms necessary to have a completely working login system.
