Gantry::Control::C::Users - User Management
This Handler manages users in the database to facilitate the use of that information for authentication, autorization, and use in applications. This replaces the use of htpasswd for user management and puts more information at the finger tips of the application.

This is the auth_users table that is used by this module. It is also used by the Authentication modules to verify usernames and passwords. The passwords are ecrypted by the crypt(3) function in perl.
create table "auth_users" ( "id" int4 default nextval('auth_users_seq') NOT NULL, "user_id" int4, "active" bool, "user_name" varchar, "passwd" varchar, "crypt" varchar, "first_name" varchar, "last_name" varchar, "email" varchar );
Most of the methods are mapped to urls.
Decides where to go after a button press.
One method is provided for templates to call.
Provides the site nav links for use at the top and/or bottom of the page.
The passwords for users are enrypted so they can not be seen at all. In some situations this could be a very big problem.
