Django Oscar: Nothing showing up at URL "http://localhost:8000/buy/"

Issue

I wanted to include an ecommerce portal on my website and I have done everything as given on the “Create your Shop page” as given in Django-Oscar documentation, just that in
urls.py instead of

url(r'', include(application.urls)),

I have added

url(r'^buy/', include(application.urls)),

but the problem is that when I hit the url it is neither showing anything nor giving an error.

Any idea what could be the problem?

It could be some urls are clashing or something else trivial but I am not able to understand from where to start debugging.

File urls.py

from django.conf.urls import patterns, include, url
from django.contrib import admin

                           # url(r'^users/', include('users.urls')),
                           url(r'^i18n/', include('django.conf.urls.i18n')),
                           url(r'^admin/', include(admin.site.urls)),

Solution

I see that in your second screenshot localhost:8000/buy/catalogue/ you actually get a result. It would seem as if you haven’t defined your own templates or somehow need to fix your TEMPLATE_DIRS or TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS settings.

I haven’t used oscar, but that fact that you get something on screen seems like a template loading issue to me.

See their docs about setting the template_context_processors

Can you post your settings please?

Update:

After seeing your settings, the template_context_processors look correct. I next looked at oscar’s templates and they seem to extend without qualifying the oscar directory. For example, layout.html (/oscar/templates/oscar/layout.html) does this:

{% extends 'base.html' %}

Now, if you also have a ‘base.html’ file in your own project directory, say project_dir/templates/base.html, then it’ll probably use that instead. Can you try to temporarily rename that file (if it exists) and see what happens?
