How to render in my view many actions (sometimes from different
So i.e. I will have user status/login form at the top, form for
creating/editing some data on the left and a list of these data elements
on the right and some other things at the bottom?

Can i put some of this stuff to the layout? So i will always have login
form or, if user is logged in, his status at the top?

You can use render_component() for stuff like that.

I'm sure you're not the only one, I also needed to look it up in the
