i got this error when i try to run this test case: WHICH IS written in tests.py of my django application:

def test_accounts_register( self ):
    self.url = 'http://royalflag.com.pk/accounts/register/'
    self.c = Client()
    self.values = {
        'email': 'bilal@gmail.com',
        'first_name': 'bilal',
        'last_name': 'bash',
        'password1': 'bilal',
        'password2': 'bilal',
    self.response = self.c.post( self.url, self.values )

Accepted Answer

It seems to me you probably have a code like {% load settings_tags %} somewhere in your template. Django looks for templatetags/settings_tags.py file in your installed apps' directories. This is the result of not finding a file like this. Maybe the app, which contains it is not in your INSTALLED_APPS or maybe it's a typo. You should be getting the same error when you put this url in your browser.

Sometimes this happens when you forgot to put an __ init __.py in the package.
