  # Stop all configuration if the DB is not set up

  if !unsupported_options.nil?
    raise ArgumentError.new(
      "You are using the old v1.X.X configuration method for Authlogic. Instead of passing a hash of " +
      "configuration options to acts_as_authentic, pass a block: acts_as_authentic { |c| c.my_option = my_value }"

- (Object) add_acts_as_authentic_module(mod, action = :append)

Since this part of Authlogic deals with another class, ActiveRecord, we can't just start including things in ActiveRecord itself. A lot of these module includes need to be triggered by the acts_as_authentic method call. For example, you don't want to start adding in email validations and what not into a model that has nothing to do with Authlogic.

That being said, this is your tool for extending Authlogic and “hooking” into the acts_as_authentic call.

def add_acts_as_authentic_module(mod, action = :append)
  modules = acts_as_authentic_modules.clone
  case action
  when :append
    modules << mod
  when :prepend
    modules = [mod] + modules
  end
  modules.uniq!
  self.acts_as_authentic_modules = modules
end

- (Object) remove_acts_as_authentic_module(mod)

This is the same as add_acts_as_authentic_module, except that it removes the module from the list.
