I want to create a form that I can fill in simply by typing All the examples seem to attach all forms to menu items. Is it possible to have a form that is not in a menu?

Whenever you implement

Whenever you implement hook_menu(), you can achieve this by setting the "type" parameter to MENU_CALLBACK. That way the link will be accessible but won't appear as a link. Like this...

function MY_MODULE_menu() {

  $items[sample-form] = array(
    'title' => 'Sample Form',
    'page callback' => 'drupal_get_form',
    'page arguments' => array('sample_form'),
    'access callback' => TRUE,
    'type' => MENU_CALLBACK,

  return $items;

function sample_form($form, &$form_submit) {
  //The way you implement the form is up to you...

If you take a look a the this video
Notice that if you don't specify the "type" parameter it will default to MENU_NORMAL_ITEM which will create a navigation link. So the key is setting to MENU_CALLBACK...
