I am trying to create a new pieform that shows in the index page, I manged to create a function that draws the pieform and display it on the template.
I manged to make it move the submitted data to another page in which handle the data there and redirect it back to the index.
I was wondering if I can make the index.php handle the submitted data insted of sending the user to another page, I already tried to work with function_submit but it didn't work out form, and the documentation for the pieform didn't cover that.
PS, I think friends control block already does do that.
Thanks in advance for your help

There are lots of examples where a form is processed on the same page as it's drawn, a very simple example is the contact.php page.
I don't know why your <formname>_submit function is not being called though, is it possible that there's a redirect on that page that is getting called before the pieform() function is called?
Also, I have an unrelated question for you: how would you feel about moving the Arabic translation to Launchpad (where it should be easier to keep up to date)? Details are on this thread: http://mahara.org/interaction/forum/topic.php?id=3826
