Python Django Basics Final Details Article detail view

Article Detail View, Question 1 of 3.

when I enter this code for the first challenge:

from .models import Step

def article_detail(request, pk): step = get_object_or_404(Step, id=pk, pk=step_pk) return render(request, 'articles/article_detail.html', {'step': step})

I get "Bummer! Did you create the 'article_detail view?" Well, yeah...that's what I was trying t do...

Any help? Thanks.

articles/views.py
from django.shortcuts import render

from .models import Article, Writer
from .models import Step

def article_list(request):
    articles = Article.objects.all()
    return render(request, 'articles/article_list.html', {'articles': articles})


def writer_detail(request, pk):
    writer = Writer.objects.get(pk=pk)
    return render(request, 'articles/writer_detail.html', {'writer': writer})

def article_detail(request, pk):
    step = get_object_or_404(Step, id=pk, pk=step_pk)
    return render(request, 'articles/article_detail.html', {'step': step})
articles/urls.py
from django.conf.urls import url

from . import views

urlpatterns = [
    url(r'writer/(?P<pk>\d+)/$', views.writer_detail),
    url(r'', views.article_list),
]

I think it might be your step import and use of that that's throwing off the challenge. I think you're going above and beyond what they're expecting. Take a look at my solution for step 1.

def article_detail(request, pk):
  article = Article.objects.get(pk=pk)
  return render(request, 'articles/article_detail.html',{'article': article})

Note: I did not import Step either.

Thanks...I figured it out right after I posted. Shouldn't be so impatient! Now I'm "stuck" on step 3.

Thanks again for responding so quickly.

OK...I just said I should be more patient. But I think I must be missing something really basic for the 3rd question:

def article_detail(request, pk): article = Article.objects.get(pk=pk) article = get_object_or_404(Article, pk=pk) return render(request, 'articles/article_detail.html',{'article': article})

The message says to be sure that bad pk's are returning 404's Seems like this is how he did it in the video...

Thanks again.

Honestly? I have no idea LOL. I can't make it past it again either. I can do step one and 2 but fail on step 3. I'd suggest posting a whole new question and let someone with more points/experience than I have answer that one :)

Thanks...I actually think there's a bug. :)
