authlogic configuration : If you want to have password and password confirmation required on signup form AND optional (i.e, leave it blank) in profile update, this is the configuration
View authlogic-configuration.rb
class User < ActiveRecord::Base
attr_accessor :password_confirmation

c.validates_length_of_login_field_options :within=>1..30 #username can be 1 to 30 characters long

#the below two would make password and password_confirmation optional i.e, you don't have to fill it.
