So close! You forgot to put in your define function def register(): line.

This is part 1 of 3, the next parts will require a deeper understanding of imports, forms, and models. So make sure to read the instructions carefully because if you forget to import or namespace, it won't quite work.

Good luck with your Python journey!!

@app.route('/register', methods=('GET', 'POST')) 
def register():
    return ("register")
