Tutorial, Part 3

Decoupling the URLconfs

There is a '' file in 'mysite' directory that looks like:

urlpatterns = patterns('mysite.polls.views',
    (r'^polls/$', 'index'),
    (r'^polls/(?P<poll_id>\d+)/$', 'detail'),
    (r'^polls/(?P<poll_id>\d+)/results/$', 'results'),
    (r'^polls/(?P<poll_id>\d+)/vote/$', 'vote'),

It is adivsed to copy this file to 'polls' subdirectory, and to modify original file, to make it looks like:

# ...
urlpatterns = patterns('',
    (r'^polls/', include('mysite.polls.urls')),
    # ...

So if now i'll take a look at my site:

Here's what happens if a user goes to "/polls/34/" in this system:

Unfortunatelly there will 'Page not found' appear :(

In my opinion, there shoul be:

Here's what happens if a user goes to "polls/polls/34/" in this system:

otherwise there should be something more removed ('polls') from one of the files.
