Django, Error 404, Not Found: /products/5 GIVE me Your hand

I have quation regarding Django, I tried to solve it myself during 2 days, but I haven't any ideas about this problem, can YOU help me? I read a book about Django, and there is example:

from django.urls import re_path
from django.urls import path
from firstapp import views

urlpatterns = [
    re_path(r'^users/(?P<id>\d+)/?P<name>\D+/', views.about),
    re_path(r'^about', views.about),
    path('', views. index),


from django.http import HttpResponse

def index(request):
    return HttpResponse("<h2>Main</h2>")

def about(request):
    return HttpResponse("<h2>About site</h2>")

def contact(request):
    return HttpResponse("<h2>Contacts</h2>")

def products(request, productid):
    output = "<h2>Product № {0}</h2>".format(productid)
    return HttpResponse(output)

def users(request, id, name):
    output = "<h2>User</h2><h3>id: {О} " \
                   "Name:{1}</hЗ>".format(id, name)
    return HttpResponse(output)

But after using this link(http://127.0.0.l:8000/products/5), I get this text: Using the URLconf defined in hello.urls, Django tried these URL patterns, in this order:

^products/?P\d+/ ^users/(?P\d+)/?P\D+/ ^about/contact/ ^about The current path, products/5, didn’t match any of these.

You’re seeing this error because you have DEBUG = True in your Django settings file. Change that to False, and Django will display a standard 404 page.

And this thing in terminal: Not Found: /products/5 [08/Feb/2023 12:17:13] "GET /products/5 HTTP/1.1" 404 2597

I need Your help!

I tried to delet code about:

re_path(r'^users/(?P<id>\d+)/?P<name>\D+/', views.about),

and I haven't this 'ERROR 404', but I can't finish my project without this text

Haven't tested this solution myself yet - but it looks like you're missing some parentheses. I believe the first path you've configured should be something like:


This should work, but will match products/5 as well as products/5/anything/else/here which is probably not the behaviour you're after. In that case the path should be something like:


The django docs do a pretty good job at explaining how all this works in any level of detail you need, see

EDIT: In the above, should be views.products. Presumably this should be pointing to your def products view.
