My guess is it has something to with the url tag. I’m not so sure though.

Any help is appreciated.

Hey @GP101, Welcome to the forums.

I had a similar issue where the namespace in the urls.py was mistyped.

If you are still having issues, please post both “urls.py” and the “views.py” so we can better diagnose the issue.

Thank you for your reply.

I was able to fix the issue. As per the Python Mastery Course > 12- Building Web Applications with Django > 18- Referencing URLs, I had to include app_name = “movies” in order for this to work.

Appreciate the support!
