Formset part 2

Hi all

I seem to be having issues with this task. Unfortunately I don't even seem to know where to start. I have tried many approaches.

Any advice would be highly appreciated.

products/views.py
from django.core.urlresolvers import reverse
from django.http import HttpResponseRedirect
from django.shortcuts import render

from . import forms


def product_form(request):
    form = forms.DigitalProductForm()
    if request.method == 'POST':
        form = forms.DigitalProductForm(request.POST)
        if form.is_valid():
            form.save()
            return HttpResponseRedirect(reverse('products:create'))
    return render(request, 'products/product_form.html', {'form': form})


def bulk_create_products(request):
    formset = forms.DigitalFormset()
    if request.method == 'POST':
      formset = forms.DigitalFormset(request.POST)
      if formset.is_valid():
        formset.save()
        return HttpResponseRedirect("products:bulk_create")     
    return render(request, 'products/bulk_create.html', {'formset': formset})

UPDATE I solved the issue. But thank you for reading!

Ok. So I sovled it. was a combination of forgetting to include the reverse() fucntion and indentation errors.

def bulk_create_products(request):
    formset = forms.DigitalFormset()
    if request.method == 'POST':
      formset = forms.DigitalFormset(request.POST)
      if formset.is_valid():
        formset.save()
        return HttpResponseRedirect(reverse ('products:bulk_create'))     
    return render(request, 'products/bulk_create.html', {'formset': formset})
