User login

Return user to current page: How to link to a form from a Drupal menu

Press login / press account links for anonymous and logged in users, respectively. Subtly added to a bottom menu. Via code in order to allow for the redirect back to the page you were on after login or editing.

There is surely a way, or should be a way, that does not involve hook_page_alter(), but hey, this works.

* Implements hook_page_alter().
function feature_final_page_alter(&$page) {
  if ($menu =& $page['footer']['menu_menu-utility']) {
    if ($menu['378']['#attributes']['class'][0] == 'last') {
    global $user;
    if (!$user->uid) {
      // If anonymous, set link and link title accordingly.
      // Note:  Path will be handed to l() and thus url().
      $path = 'user';
      $title = t('Press login');
      $tooltip = t('Sign in or register for media-only access to high-resolution images and more.');
    else {
      // The user is logged in, direct them to their account page.
      $path = 'user/' . $user->uid . '/edit';
      $title = t('Press account');
      $tooltip = t('Manage your contact information.');
    $menu['feature_final_press'] = array(
      '#theme' => 'menu_link__menu_utility',
      '#attributes' => array(
        'class' => array(
          0 => 'last',
          1 => 'leaf',
      '#title' => $title,
      '#href' => $path,
      '#localized_options' => array(
        'query' => drupal_get_destination(),
        'attributes' => array(
          'title' => $tooltip,
      '#below' => array(),
