How to create form from scratch

The module I develop has registered a menu item and several local tasks beneath. When the user navigates to a certain local task, I'd like to display a form using the Forms API. I already managed to display the form, but it comes to a JavaScript error as soon as I enter something into the autocomplete field.

Because I have no node type to deal with, I assume I have to set up the '#type' => 'form' myself. But I'm not sure about that at all.

Looking at the form's source code I found out all id and name parameters are empty. Would be great if somebody could comment the approach or suggest a different one.


function pobox_page_callback( $arg='newmail') {

$return = '';

switch ($arg) {
case 'newmail':

$newmail_form['newmail'] = array(
'#type' => 'form',
'#title' => t('Submit a personal message')

$newmail_form['newmail']['recipient'] = array(
'#type' => 'textfield',
'#title' => t('Recipient'),
'#size' => 30,
'#maxlength' => 60,
'#autocomplete_path' => 'user/autocomplete',
'#weight' => -1

$newmail_form['newmail']['submit'] = array(
'#type' => 'submit',
'#value' => 'submit form',

Importing php script in drupal

I'm trying to import a server on/offline script into Drupal, I turned on the php filter, entered the code, but it doesn't work.
When I try to show it using only a php script and it shows the way I wanted it to.
I just used includes, but Drupal is messing it up.

HTTP error 501 occurred...Call to undefined function user_access()

I can not install Drupal 6.1. I have already checked directory access, db-passwords, etc. I tried clean re-install many times but no luck. I tried many possibilities: with/without table_prefix, db_password etc.

Its running on rhel + apache2 + php5 + mysql5

Please help!

Creating multiple content parts for a node

Hi, I'm not sure if the answer should be staring me in the face or not, but here is what I am trying to do:

For the layout It I want to have, I need to end up with:

<div id="name">
	main node content
<div id="name2">
	some other content

Currently I have to type out all of the content (including the divs) into the one field when creating pages, since all I have to work with in page.tpl.php is $content.
