Even after writing the correct url it is showing as task1 is no longer parsing

Django basics: urlpatterns = [ url(r'^$', views.hello_world), ] is showing as error may I know where is the fault.

from django.conf.urls import url

from . import views

urlpatterns = [

    url(r'^$', views.hello_world),

Hey there,

You don't seem to be putting in the correct URL. The instructions specifically ask for the index but you are routing to hello_world? The syntax is correct, but the URL is not. It should be:

urlpatterns = [
    url(r'^$', views.index),

Other than that, nice work! :) :dizzy:
