I was doing the tutorial from the book teach yourself django in 24 hours and in part1 hour 4 i got stuck on this error.

Can someone help me please..


from django.conf.urls.defaults import *

####Uncomment the next two lines to enable the admin:
#### from django.contrib import admin
#### admin.autodiscover()

urlpatterns = patterns('',
    (r'^People/$', 'iFriends.People.views.index') ,
    (r'^admin/', include('django.contrib.admin.urls')), 
    # Example:
    # (r'^iFriends/', include('iFriends.foo.urls')),

    # Uncomment the admin/doc line below and add 'django.contrib.admindocs' 
    # to INSTALLED_APPS to enable admin documentation:
    # (r'^admin/doc/', include('django.contrib.admindocs.urls')),

    # Uncomment the next line to enable the admin:

Accepted Answer

You somehow set some function to a tuple. Please edit the question and paste your urls.py code, so we can point you to the error.

I can try a wild guess:

File "c:\projects\iFriends\..\iFriends\urls.py", line 17, in <module>
   (r'^admin/', include('django.contribute.admin.urls'))

This somehow tells me that you missed a comma on line 16, so:

16. (r'^/', 'some_stuff....')      # <-- missed comma here
17. (r'^admin/', include('django.contribute.admin.urls'))

Just put the comma and it will work. If that's not the case, I'll send my cristal ball for mainantance. Paste the code.


Seems like you have pasted the urls.py as an answer. Please edit the question and paste urls.py there.

Anyway, the error has changed. What did you do? In this new error, urls.py is not found anymore so maybe you've renamed it? Have you changed the way you run the application?

The file you pasted is not the one that is running. Are you pasting url.py and django is reading urls.py? The code in the error doesn't match the code you pasted! Please paste the correct file, i.e. the same that gives the error, or we can't help.
