UserDefined Form - Alternate Template

Go to End

I need a separate TEMPLATE for my form; I.e.: other than, for reasons too complicated and boring to go into. SO-- I have followed a forum member's advice and created a new pagetype ("ContactForm[.php]") which extends UserDefinedForm and rebuilt my database and change the pagetype to the new one. My form is all still there in the CMS so I know the extends is working fine.

I also then created my template, and coded my special layout. The template is being accessed and used (showtemplate=1). So we're good there. However, for some very frustrating reason, the form I built inside the CMS is not showing up! Although $Content is benig picked up, $Form seems to have NO effect.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance,

class YourFormPageType extends UserDefinedForm {

static $add_action = 'my page type';

// Any other custom code
