The second part of your code had the problem:

def send_lead(email, url): send_mail( 'Lead from {}'.format(email), '{} submitted {}'.format(email, url), email, ['kenneth@teamtreehouse.com'] )

def lead_form(request): form = forms.LeadShareForm() # <-- add default form initialization if request.method == 'POST': form = forms.LeadShareForm(request.POST) if form.is_valid(): return HttpResponseRedirect(reverse("lead")) return render(request, 'lead_form.html', {'form': form})
