Yii RenderPartial not working

I am using renderParial() function to render views->subscriber->_form from views->layouts->main.php Problem i am getting is I am failed to insert data using this. Gii generated CRUD is working perfectly but when i render _form and want to insert data in database it's not working. Here is my code. main.php

<div class="col-lg-6" style="text-align:right;">
                     <span>Subscribe Newsletter</span>  
                      <div style="float:right;margin-left:10px;">
                                                   $model=new Subscription();



and _form.php

/* @var $this SubscriptionController */
/* @var $model Subscription */
/* @var $form CActiveForm */

<div class="form">

<?php $form=$this->beginWidget('CActiveForm', array(
    // Please note: When you enable ajax validation, make sure the corresponding
    // controller action is handling ajax validation correctly.
    // There is a call to performAjaxValidation() commented in generated controller code.
    // See class documentation of CActiveForm for details on this.
)); ?>

    <?php echo $form->errorSummary($model); ?>

    <div class="row">

        <?php echo $form->textField($model,'email',array('size'=>30,'maxlength'=>30,'placeholder'=>'Email Address')); ?>
        <?php echo $form->error($model,'email'); ?>
        <?php echo CHtml::submitButton($model->isNewRecord ? 'Subscribe' : 'Save',array('class'=>'btn btn-xs btn-success subscribeBtn')); ?>

<?php $this->endWidget(); ?>



As adamS and Michiel have commented, if you want to put a form or data in your main.php layout file, you should use a widget.

To create a widget, you need to do the following:

1: Create a php file in your /protected/components/ dir, something like SubscriptionWidget.php

2: Create a dir views in your components dir

3: Create your view .php file in your /protected/components/views/, something like subscriptionWidget.php

4: Put the following code in your SubscriptionWidget.php file:

class SubscriptionWidget extends CWidget
    public function init()


    public function run()
        $model = new SubscriptionForm;
            // proces the data
        $this->render('subscriptionWidget', array('model'=>$model));

Your widget is done. All you need to do now is call it in your main.php layout file, like so:

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
<?php $this->widget('SubscriptionWidget'); ?>

Also, don't forget to put the form in your newly created view file.

Hope this helps.
