why is the radio input in detail.html not appearing?

im trying to follow the basic django poll app tutorial and the radio input field for the choices doesn’t appear on the website


<form action="{% url 'polls:vote' question.id %}" method="post">
    {% csrf_token %}
        <legend><h1>{{ question.question_text }}</h1></legend>
        {% if error_message %}<p><strong>{{ error_message }}</strong></p>{% endif %}
        {% for choice in question.choice_set.all %}
            <input type="radio" name="choice" id="choice{{ forloop.counter }}" value="{{ choice.id }}">
            <label for="choice{{ forloop.counter }}">{{ choice.choice_text }}</label><br>
        {% endfor %}
    <input type="submit" value="Vote">

Welcome @Omar !

Have you verified that you do have choices for the question being rendered?

Does it work if you render the fields as shown in the tutorial?

What is the HTML that was produced by the template?

(I’m guessing you’re on part 3 of the tutorial?)

im on part 4 of the tutorial,
I have choices for the questions being rendered
no, it doesn’t

This output does not match the template you’re showing.

This leads me to believe that one (or more) of the following are true:

  • You are not showing the complete template you are trying to render.

  • You’re not rendering the template you think you’re rendering.

  • You do not actually have any choices for question with ID = 1
