The action link view helper uses the following attributes for specifying the action:

   <f:link.action action="show" controller="Post" package="Blog" ...

The form view helper, however, uses other attribute names:
   <f:form action="create" controllerName="Comment" packageName="Blog" subpackageName="Foo">

That is not only incosistent with the link view helper but also in general (we never use "packageName" but only "packageKey").

Please rename the attributes as follows:

controllerName -> controller
packageName -> package
subpackageName -> subpackage

Note that names like "controller", "package" etc. should only be used for attributes in Fluid templates. We make the exception there to provide shorter names for the users. Generally in PHP code we'd rather use "controllerName", "packageKey" etc.
