To render a Drupal form to a node, drupal_build_form function is used. This function allows us to render all forms except the admin forms. Note that, admin forms didn't find success while rendering the same. In-order to render a form the following syntax is used,

$form_id = 'user_login_form';
  $form_state = array();
  $form_state['build_info']['args'] = array();
  $form_state['build_info']['files']['menu'] = array();
  $form = drupal_build_form($form_id, $form_state);
  return render($form);

Here we are trying to render user login form, if you are logged in as a user it will redirect to user profile page. Here form state values are built and are passed as parameter along with form id for the drupal_build_form function.

Instead of drupal_render(), simply render() is used to render. This will output the form in the node page. Hope this help, happy coding. For more assistance, contact us and for Drupal solutions, have a look on our services.

By default Drupal 7 has two types of views - The Full node view and the Teaser view. This has been the case for all previous versions of Drupal. However if your requirements are different, then you might have to create a custom view that is tailored to meet your specific needs.
