I'd looked at, but, tbh, I'm not at a point yet where I've
'internalized' this enough to make a sound decision.
Seems that there's almost _always_ another way to do it ;-) I'm
bouncing around from doc snippet to doc snippet, generally getting
each one working relatively quickly & easily. That's good. Trying to
stitch this all together is proving challenging so far ... waiting for
the 'lightning bolt'!
I'll share the overall context of what I'm trying to achieve here --
and ask for comment as to approach.
Here we go:
I want to change the process workflow of form submission & user auth,
using, as much as possible, available core tech'y & modules. Using
'Search' as an example action:
I've 3 user roles,
On front page, display search bar/box any/ALL users
@ text entry & Submit of search, interrupt/redirect BEFORE submitting
to search backend,
'store' original search criteria
check logged in state
(1) if LoggedIn as RegisteredMember
push original Search to search backend
present search results
include advanced_search option to modify/filter/resubmit search in
search result form.
(2) if LoggedIn as VerifiedHuman
(a) LogIn as RegisteredMember
continue @ (1)
(b) Create new Account
exit search to launch (User Reg) process
(c) Continue as VerifiedHuman
present simple/unmodifiable search results
(3) if !LoggedIn, currently Anonymous
(a) exit to home page
(b) display/submit (re)Captcha
(i) if success
continue @ (2)
(ii) if fail >= 3x
ban IP from Search form access for 180 min.
exit to home page
To get 'this' done, I'm hoping to leverage as much as possible of
core's user.module & contrib'd Captcha.module.
I've also started looking at core's Trigger, and contrib Rules.module
-- but am not convinced they're helpful, or not.
So, that said -- is your suggestion of '#theme' still a good approach?
In the meantime, I'll dig @ http://drupal.org/node/751826.
