How to fix TemplatesDoesNotExist error even after BASE_DIR has been Joined with templates in settings.py

Tags: , , , ,



Image 1- Error

I notice Exception Value: registration/login.html , I don’t even have that in the templates, instead, i have sign-in.html, I have no idea why it mentioned login.html. Please see my templates folder below as image 3-Templates.

enter image description here

  1. I’m trying to fix the above error. My project path looks like

Image 2- project path

enter image description here

Image 3- Templates

enter image description here

  1. The image 2 above shows that my templates folder is located in foodtaskerapp folder
  2. In the settings.py I have added 'DIRS': [os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'templates')], in the TEMPLATES section.
  3. I think there is an error because before we can get to templates from BASE_DIR we need to pass through the foodtaskerapp. This leads me to the following step
  4. In the settings.py I tried 'DIRS': [os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'foodtaskerapp','templates')], to replace step 2
  5. After the above step, I also tried 'DIRS': [os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'foodtaskerapp\templates')], . I had use two slashes here because when i used the print command from the interactive console i saw the path was given in that format.
  6. I have also tried move my templates folder from the foodtaskerapp to the root folder and I checked like below to confirm if I’m in the right path:
from django.conf import settings

print(settings.TEMPLATES)

Then I got

'DIRS': ['C:\Users\simple_tech\Desktop\foodtasker-master\foodtasker-master\templates']

The above shows I’m on the right path.

But I still got the error “TemplatesDoesNotExist” whenever I clicked on the server URL after running

python manage.py runserver

For further investigation, bellow is my

Answer

Django does not have a “default” login.html template . see more here

the login view uses the registration/login.html template just like ny other app in your project, third apps or in this case, a contrib (builtin) app.. you need to crate templates inside a known path. In this case path = registration/login.html

All you have todo is, create in your templates root dir, another dir with name registration and the, inside it, a template file called login.html
