How come my form is blank?

The most likely cause of forms not displaying is due to permission errors. Read The Permission System and check your attr_accessible declarations.

If the entire form is missing you can add alternate content through an else clause:

<else> No permission to display form </else>

It’s also possible that the form is displaying but none of the fields are. You can force the display of the fields with

  <field-list: force-all/>

You probably don’t want that in production code, though!
