That is true, but in that case the MY_Controller class may not have a __construct() method. If it does have a __construct() method you MUST call the parent::_construct manually.

So the question is:
Does @gbwebapps have an empty constructor in his MY_Controller class?

The point I failed to make is that however he has defined MY_Controller it must be OK. If it was not then his call to $this->load->model('Auth_Model'); in Dashboard::index() would produce the error: "Undefined property: Dashboard::$load".

But he says it works. If Dashboard has access to $load then CI_Controller::__construct() did execute.

Still, it would be nice to see the code for MY_Controller and to see the error message he mentions.
