Re: User authentication in Django

Okay, that problem is fixed. I just added the /accounts/login to the
url file.

New problem:

my login page is giving me: CSRF verification failed. Request aborted

This is the html from login.html

{% block content %}

{% if form.errors %}
<p class="error">Sorry, that's not a valid username or password</
{% endif %}

<form action="" method="post">
{% csrf_token %}
<label for="username">User name:</label>
<input type="text" name="username" value="" id="username">
<label for="password">Password:</label>
<input type="password" name="password" value="" id="password">

<input type="submit" value="login" />
<input type="hidden" name="next" value="{{ next|escape }}" />

{% endblock %}

Any ideas?
