I have used default user login block on top navigation. I need to load another log in form on some pages.

I am trying to load the form by


I get the following error:

Notice: Undefined index: user-login in drupal_retrieve_form() (line 763 of /path/to/drupal/includes/form.inc). Warning: call_user_func_array() expects parameter 1 to be a valid callback, function 'user-login' not found or invalid function name in drupal_retrieve_form() (line 798 of /path/to/drupal/includes/form.inc).

Is it possible to load a second log in form? (Drupal 7)

  • Do you mean you want two log-in blocks/forms on the same page? Feb 1, 2013 at 0:43
  • Yes, One is on top navigation on all pages. Second one will be on some pages where there is a password protected content.

  • You can use the LoginToboggan module if you want to show a login form when users do not have appropriate permission. Just check the setting for "show login form on access denied." drupal.org/project/logintoboggan Feb 1, 2013 at 0:55

The key point in the error message is:

...expects parameter 1 to be a valid callback, function 'user-login' not found

You need to use:


Where user_login is the form builder function in this case.


print render(drupal_get_form('user_login'));
