Drupal 7 notes: the submit button on the node creation form isn't working!

In template.php:

<?php function [theme-name]_theme($existing, $type, $theme, $path) { return array ( '[content-type]_node_form' = array( 'render element' =>

'form', 'template' => 'node--[content-type]-form', ) ); } ?>

If you keep template files in a subdirectory (eg sites//all/themes/[theme-name]/templates or something to that effect) this may help:

'path' => drupal_get_path('theme', '[theme-name]') . '/subfolder',

After you've put all your fields where you want them in your pretty node--type.tpl.php:

<?php echo render($form['title']); echo render($form['field_[field_name]']); // etc // with whatever formatting around it ?>

At the end put

<?php echo drupal_render_children($form) ?>

That renders all those sneaky little hidden fields Drupal uses to process and validate form stuff. Use css to hide the vertical tabs if you want them hidden.
