Hello folks,
I am completely new in Python programming, and at beginning of the day, I am having some issues.
Hope you guys will help me pass through the issue.

The error shows on my CMD:
NameError: name 'path' is not defined

Quote:from django.conf.urls import url
from.import views
urlpatterns = [
url(r'^$', views.index, name='index'),
Quote:from django.http import httpresponse

def index(request):
return httpresponse ("<h1>Hello About us</>")
Quote:from django.conf.urls import include, url
from django.contrib import admin
urlpatterns = [
path(r'^aboutus/', include('aboutus.urls')),

You have to import the path module:

from django.urls import path
BTW, what version of Django are you using?
Hello Gontajones,
Thanks for your reply.
Django version is : (2, 1, 0, 'beta', 1)

After I made changes I am getting now different Error (as you suggested).

What is aboutus? It is an app, right?

You have to import it too.

import aboutus
Yes, Aboutus is an App. where should I add this "import aboutus " ? on root or under my apps
Sorry if you found this is silly questions, i am new.
Where do you call it?
Usually is on your root (project
Here is the link of Image.
please take a look
What is the name of the app, AboutUs or abautus?
You have to use the exact name as include('app_name.urls') parameter:

# For app name AboutUs
path('aboutus/', include('AboutUs.urls')

# Or

# For app name aboutus
path('aboutus/', include('aboutus.urls')
And the file must exists inside the app's folder.
Perfect, Thanks Gontajones

it was Case sensitive
i used, path('aboutus/', include('AboutUs.urls') and after that i was getting
Quote:Request Method: GET
Request URL:
Django Version: 1.3.1
Exception Type: ImportError
Exception Value:
cannot import name HttpResponse

then i changed to
Quote:django.http import HttpResponse
and it works.
Thank you for your time.
Yep, now you got it!
When you use something from external modules, you have to import them.
