URL redirections


I’am having a Question about URL redirection:
In my project I have the following urls.py:

from django.contrib import admin
from django.urls import path, include

urlpatterns = [
path(‘admin/’, admin.site.urls),
path(‘’, include(‘leden.urls’)),

I also created a App named leden with the following config:

from django.urls import path
from .views import Home, RegisterView

urlpatterns = [
path(‘’, Home, name=‘leden-home’),
path(‘register/’, RegisterView.as_view(), name=‘leden-register’),

In my app I configured added the following code:
from django.shortcuts import render, redirect
from django.contrib import messages
from django.views import View
from .forms import RegisterForm

Create your views here.

def Home(request):
return render(request, ‘leden/home.html’)

And in my app I created a templates\leden folder where my home.html is located. when i run the server and going to I am getting the following error:

Page not found (404)

Request Method: GET
Request URL:

Using the URLconf defined in website.urls, Django tried these URL patterns, in this order:

  1. admin/
  2. [name=‘leden-home’]
  3. register/ [name=‘leden-register’]

The current path, leden/, didn’t match any of these.

Hopefully you can help figuring out what Iam doing wrong

Thank’s in advance

path(‘’, include(‘leden.urls’)),

this must be root slash in root url as below.,

path(‘/’, include(‘leden.urls’)),

Hope it helps.

Side note: When posting code here, enclose the code between lines of three backtick - ` characters. This means you’ll have a line of ```, then your code, then another line of ```. This forces the forum software to keep your code properly formatted. (You can also use this with error messages, templates, etc)

You don’t have a path for leden.

No, actually it does not.
