Nice to see that good people help !...

What I trying to do:

This is the whole prototype code.

function oleg_menu() {

    $items['user/%user/pgacademy/tests'] = array(
        'title' => 'OLEG',
        'page callback' => 'drupal_get_form',
        'page arguments' => array('oleg_nameform',1),
        'access callback' => TRUE,
        'type' => MENU_CALLBACK,
    return $items;

function oleg_nameform($form, &$form_state,$accoundID) {
     return $form;

The page even doesn't appear... Can someone explain me why it fails,or what could be the problem ? Oleg

  • Actually what you are trying to achieve. could you please elaborate more? Aug 31, 2012 at 10:23

    using $items['user/%user/foo/bar] should work.. You must clear the caches everytime.

What indrock says in the comments is right, you should be using a placeholder like %user.

But you'll also need to pass the argument through to the form callback like so:

function my_module_menu() {
  $items['user/%user/foo/bar'] = array(
    'title' => 'My Title',
    'page callback' => 'drupal_get_form',
    'page arguments' => array('my_module_nameform', 1),
    'access callback' =>array('user_is_logged_in'), 
    'type' => MENU_CALLBACK,
  return $items;

The signature for my_module_nameform() would be:

function my_module_nameform($form, &$form_state, $account)

user_is_logged_in() doesn't accept any parameters so there's no need for the access arguments. Again as indrock says, clear the caches whenever you make a change to the hook implementation.

  • I have edited the post ... :) take a new look... Aug 31, 2012 at 12:42
  • Did you clear Drupal's caches after making the change? And by 'not appear' do you mean that a new tab doesn't appear on the user account?

  • Hi Clive, I flushed the cache..I am doing it every time. The tab is there...But it displays something different,from the module "Panels". Still...if I do global $user and $user->uid it works very fine for a single user :(.... I am really confused Aug 31, 2012 at 12:50
  • Ah, it sounds like panels is doing a number on the page. I can't help with that I'm afraid, I've never used it. The code above is 100% definitely the right way to do it; it might be worth asking a question to the effect of "why does panels stop this code working?"

  • Also its not the user id but rather the fully loaded user object that will passed through to your form function...could that be causing a problem? If you don't want that to be the case, just change the menu path to user/%/foo/bar. That will pass the account id rather than the user object
