SignUp view problem
I am getting a "Bummer: Try again!" error. I can't spot the error.
from django.core.urlresolvers import reverse_lazy from django.contrib.auth import authenticate, login from django.views import generic from . import forms class SignUp(generic.CreateView): form_class = forms.UserCreateForm template_name = 'accounts/signup.html' success_url = reverse_lazy("products:list") def form_valid(self, form): saved_form = super().form_valid(form) usr = form.cleaned_data['username'] pswd = form.cleaned_data['password2'] # use confirmation field user = authenticate(username=usr, password=pswd) if user is not None: if user.is_active: login(self.request, user) return saved_form

You issue might be in your if conditions? I'm not sure as I didn't try to do it this way, but maybe one of those if conditions is failing, like for example the is_active attribute, which would prevent the user from being logged in.
The code I used for the challenge assumes that if the registration form is valid then the user is also valid and simply logs them in directly.
def form_valid(self, form): data = super().form_valid(form) user = authenticate( username=form.cleaned_data["username"], password=form.cleaned_data["password2"], ) login(self.request, user) return data
