     5== POST to views loses POST data ==
     6
     7==== Symptom ====
     8
     9You are having a form that does a POST to some view and the view doesn't get the POST data from the form.
     10
     11==== Probable cause ====
     12
     13You might missing the / at the end of the form action. If that is the case, the CommonMiddleware redirects
     14to the exact name of the view - and that allways includes a trailing /. Because it does so by using the
     15standard HTTP redirection through Location header, it can't pass on the POST data - and that's why it get's lost.
     16
     17==== Solution ====
     18
     19Allways make sure that your form actions end with / like this:
     20
     21{{{
     22<form action="/registration/login/" method="POST">
     23<input name="username">
     24<input name="password" type="password">
     25</form>
     26}}}

    529== URLconf include() misbehaving ==
