I don’t really know what the problem is. Any tips and i will be forever grateful. Also im new to this whole stack overflow thing, so please let me know if you need any more info from me.


from django.db import models
from datetime import datetime
from realtors.models import Realtor

class Listing(models.Model):
    realtor = models.ForeignKey(Realtor, on_delete=models.DO_NOTHING)
    title = models.CharField(max_length=200)
    address = models.CharField(max_length=200)
    city = models.CharField(max_length=100)
    state = models.CharField(max_length=100)
    zipcode = models.CharField(max_length=20)
    description = models.TextField(blank=True)
    price = models.IntegerField()
    bedrooms = models.IntegerField()
    bathrooms = models.DecimalField(max_digits=2, decimal_places=1)
    garage = models.IntegerField(default=0)
    sqft = models.IntegerField()
    photo_main = models.ImageField(upload_to='photos/%Y/%m/%d/')
    photo_1 = models.ImageField(upload_to='photos/%Y/%m/%d/', blank=True)
    photo_2 = models.ImageField(upload_to='photos/%Y/%m/%d/', blank=True)
    photo_3 = models.ImageField(upload_to='photos/%Y/%m/%d/', blank=True)
    photo_4 = models.ImageField(upload_to='photos/%Y/%m/%d/', blank=True)
    photo_5 = models.ImageField(upload_to='photos/%Y/%m/%d/', blank=True)
    photo_6 = models.ImageField(upload_to='photos/%Y/%m/%d/', blank=True)
    is_published = models.BooleanField(default=True)
    list_date = models.DateTimeField(default=datetime.now, blank=True)

    def __str__(self):
        return self.title


from django.forms import ModelForm
from listings.models import Listing 

class listingForm(ModelForm):
    class Meta:
        model = Listing
        fields = '__all__'


def createListing(request):

    form = listingForm()
    if request.method == 'POST':
        form = createListing(request.POST)
        if form.is_valid():
            return redirect('/')

    context = {'form': form}

    return render(request, 'accounts/create_listing.html', {'form': form})


from django.urls import path
from . import views

urlpatterns = [
    path('login', views.login, name='login'),
    path('register', views.register, name='register'),
    path('logout', views.logout, name='logout'),
    path('dashboard', views.dashboard, name='dashboard'),
    path('admin', views.createListing, name='admin'),

>Solution :

The name of the form is listingForm, not createListing, you thus call this with:

def createListing(request):
    form = listingForm()
    if request.method == 'POST':
        form = listingForm(request.POST, request.FILES)  # listingForm
        if form.is_valid():
            return redirect('/')

    context = {'form': form}

    return render(request, 'accounts/create_listing.html', {'form': form})
