Previous Lesson: Lesson 15: Create a New Page in Django

In the previous lesson, I gave you an assignment or, so to say, a challenge. And, in this lesson, I will create a new page in Django, step-by-step, for you! Here’s our website:

Now let’s start coding!

home.html

Before:

After:

We added a new link on Line 9.

about.html

Create a new file:

Name it about.html:

And start writing your own essay. Remember, it can be about your experiences when you were creating this word count website; you know, the challenges you faced yourself, your mistakes, how you overcame them, and the things that you’ve learned. Or, you can simply tell something brief about yourself:

views.py

Yeah! We’ve just crushed my challenge! If you’re wondering what Bethel is, just click on that link.

Anyway, was it challenging? Whether it was or it wasn’t, if you did your best to do this challenge without cheating, you are a winner and I still want to congratulate you! So you should be proud of yourself!

Now, let’s move on to our second website! See you there!
