¿El archivo /View/Elements/lookup.ctp no se procesa dentro de /View/Layouts/default.ctp (se muestra un error)? ¿Cómo puedo hacerlo?

I want to embed an HTML input form (search bar) in /View/Layouts/default.ctp (which is Homepage presentation layout of the site). I've created /View/Elements/lookup.ctp with the following code (I wrote Element because I wanted to include that search bar on every page of the site):

<?php
echo $this->Form->create('Search', array('action' => 'lookup', 'accept-charset' => 'utf-8'));
echo $this->Form->input(array('type' => 'search', 'name' => 'search', 'placeholder' => 'enter search term'));
echo $this->Form->button('Search', array('type' => 'button', 'value' => 'submit')); 
echo $this->Form->end();
?>

The search bar itself should look like this:

___________________________     ______________
| enter search term       |    |  Search      | <--- button
|_________________________|    |______________|
    ↑
 search bar

The generated code in /View/Layouts/default.ctp must be like this:

<form id="searchForm" method="post" action="/es/searches/lookup" accept-charset="utf-8">
    <input type="search" name="search" placeholder="enter search term" />
    <button type="button" name="submit" value="submit">Search</button>
</form>

I included line:

<?php echo $this->element('lookup'); ?>

in /View/Layouts/default.ctp (which embeds the Element), but when I go to Homepage, it won't render this element and the error appears:

( @Wylie: Yes, you're right. It wasn't the whole error. Here's the complete error )

Missing table?! What missing table, it just need to add a couple of HTML lines inside a /View/Layouts/default.ctp. I don't understand what's going on. Please help. Thank you.

What is the actual error message? It looks like you clipped out the important parts. Do you have a Search model? Do you have a SearchesController? -

Cake expects a Model to have a corresponding database table. Based on the incomplete error output Cake looks for a searches table in the database, but can't find it. Because you include an element which contains a form belonging to the Search Model Cake queries the database for a description of the columns to correctly display the form.

Are you certain you want to have a separate Controller and Model for searching? search could also be an action of the relevant Controller (the PostsController, por ejemplo).

Of course, if you need a global Search model which can query several models (Posts, Pages, Users, for example) modelising might make sense. You can tell Cake that a Model doesn't have a database table:

public $useTable = false;

Thank you for your help, you were right. I didn't need separate model for the search and I solved the problem with the Controller only. - sh0ne
