Answer

You’ve specified LOGIN_REDIRECT_URL = "". The documentation for this setting says:

The URL or named URL pattern where requests are redirected after login when the LoginView doesn’t get a next GET parameter.

This means what is happening is that Django is assuming you to have specified a url name instead of a url. You can instead set the setting as follows if you want to redirect to the home page:

LOGIN_REDIRECT_URL = "/"

Or you can actually use the url name:

LOGIN_REDIRECT_URL = "index"
