  3. i try to type in the same content inside the comment and post it. but it won't let me. do you have some kind of spam blocking function in the comment app? it works perfectly fine if the content is different. waiting for anyone else's reply.

  4. Hi Justin. I have this problem Page not Found(404) in the part of the tutorial when I add the obj = get_object_or_404(Comment, id=abc):

    Here is my complete code for comments

    from django.shortcuts import render, get_object_or_404

    from .models import Comment

    def comment_thread(request, abc)
    obj = get_object_or_404(Comment, id=abc)
    context = {
    "object": obj,
    return render(request, "comment_thread.html", context

    Here is my comments

    from django.conf.urls import url
    from django.contrib import admin

    from .views import(

    urlpatterns = [
    url(r'^(?P<abc>d+)/$', comment_thread, name='thread'),


    In my blog urls I also add my url pattern for comments

  5. to redirect to the comment_thread.html page and not to the post_detail.html, use return HttpResponseRedirect(obj.get_absolute_url()) instead of return HttpResponseRedirect(new_comment.content_object.get_absolute_url())

    Love your videos very helpful!!!!!!!
