Page not found (404) Django block not showing up

Here is my routes code

urlpatterns = [
url(r'^index/$', views.IndexView.as_view(),name="index"),
url(r'^main/$', views.IndexView.as_view(),name="index"),
url(r'^home/$', views.IndexView.as_view(),name="index"),
url(r'^$', views.IndexView.as_view(),name="index"),
url(r'^pdpa/$', views.PdpaView.as_view(),name="pdpa"),
url(r'^disclaimer/$', views.DisclaimerView.as_view(),name="disclaimer"),

url(r'^works/(?P<slug>[-\w]+)/$', views.ProjectContentView.as_view(),name="works"),
url(r'^trends/(?P<slug>[-\w]+)/$', views.TrendView.as_view(),name="trends"),

url(r'^scope/$', views.ServiceScopeView.as_view(),name="scope"),
url(r'^contact/$', views.OfficeView.as_view(),name="contact"),

] + static(settings.MEDIA_URL, document_root=settings.MEDIA_ROOT)

And here it is my code, i use class-based view function

class IndexView(TemplateView):
    def get(self, request, **kwargs):
            from .models import Project
            projects = Project.objects.filter(publish__exact='1',show_on_main = "1").values('title','slug','project_type','thumbnail').order_by('id') 
            Header_Title = Header_Title_Keyword_Setting.objects.get(pk=1)
            return render(
                            'project_title':projects, #list comprehension to iterate each title value in each dictionary
                            'slug': projects,
            custom_function.logger(sys._getframe().f_code.co_name, sys.exc_info(), className = self.__class__.__name__, fileName=os.path.split(sys._getframe().f_code.co_filename)[1])

        raise Http404("Unable to access the project")

And below is one of my templates html code, i use {% extends %}, {% blocks %} to extend my base html then subsitute each of block

{% extends 'base.html' %}

{% block title%} <title>Index</title> {% endblock %}
{% block top-right-title%}  {% endblock %}

{% block content %}
<div class="row no-gutters">
  <div class="title animated bounceIn col-10 col-md-10 col-sm-10 col-lg-8 col-xl-7">
    Impactful strategies for brand success.
<section class="animated slideInUp">
  <div id="portfolio-grid" class="row no-gutters">
<!--Loop through each row of table-->
  {% for project in projects %}
    <div class="item col-12 col-sm-6 col-md-6 col-lg-4">
      <a href="{{ project.slug }}.html" class="item-wrap">
        <div class="project-info">
          <h3>{{ project.title }}</h3>
          <span>{{ project.project_type }}</span>
        <img class="img-fluid" src="{{ project.thumbnail }}">
  {% endfor %}
{% endif %}
{% endblock %}

However when i tested my Django on the webpage, it fails to render all html templates, but showing me the error message on my local web server, i know the issue might be in my view function, but i have no clue from where it comes, struggling with tedious debugging work :upside_down_face:

I would thanks for Django community help and assistance ! ! !


I would guess it’s something wrong with your view. I would suggest avoid generic try/except because (indeed) it turns the code a little bit harder to debug.

My guess is your Header_Title['name'] instruction, as far as I can see it’s supposed to be an object (so the access should be

Try reading the logs (your except block seems to be logging something). Or simply remove the try/except and see what Django will return to you.

Yes, thanks for your advice, i did debug the issue after removing the try/except clause

there is a syntax error in my html template code therefore it failed to be rendered.

Excellent, @fanhoodrex! Nice catch :slight_smile:
