#24594 closed Uncategorized (invalid)

urlpatterns as list breaks template code

Reported by: stephanm Owned by: nobody

According to

I switched a working project from

urlpatterns = patterns('',
                       url(r'^$', 'myapp.views.index', name="home"),


urlpatterns = [ url(r'^$',  myapp.views.index, name="home"), ]

But now I get the exception:

Exception Type: 	AttributeError
Exception Value: 	

'list' object has no attribute 'regex'

Exception Location: 	D:\Programme\python27\lib\site-packages\django\core\ in _populate, line 298

Because I have the following code snippet in my html template:

{% url 'home' %}

Another item: In my I have

LOGIN_URL = "/myapp/auth/login/"

which breaks too.
This one works (at least) if I change it to:

LOGIN_URL = "myapp.views.login"

System: I use python 2.7.9 (32 bit) on Windows 7 64 bit.

We will need more specific details about how to reproduce the error (such as a minimal project we can download). Please include only one "issue" per ticket as well.

It was my mistake, the old code i my project/

if settings.DEBUG:
        urlpatterns += staticfiles_urlpatterns()

and switching to the list form I changed the code to the wrong form:

if settings.DEBUG:
        urlpatterns.append( staticfiles_urlpatterns() ) #THIS IS WRONG

I didn't realize that the old code was still OK because staticfiles_urlpatterns()
returns a list.
