Hello,

I'm trying to learn Django, and I'm trying to create a basic web form that can create a form based on data from a database and the form should be able to communicate with a Django view... but I'm getting this error:

Django tried loading these templates, in this order:
Using loader django.template.loaders.filesystem.Loader:
Using loader django.template.loaders.app_directories.Loader:
/Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/django/contrib/admin/templates/quizzes/quizzes.html (File does not exist)
/Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/django/contrib/auth/templates/quizzes/quizzes.html (File does not exist)

Open in new window


Appreciate any help understanding this error, and any good tutorials that walk me through this step by step.

Thanks in advance!

I'm not a huge Django user but it looks like you're referencing a template called quizzes.html but you haven't specified the location to your templates with the TEMPLATE_DIRS variable setting  https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/topics/settings/.   The filesystem Loader tries to find it but can't (likely because of a missing TEMPLATE_DIRS setting).  The app_directories loader then starts up and it can't find it either.  

As far as tutorials go, the Django documentation is really pretty good.  IMO the documentation is one of the primary reasons it's such a popular framework.
