Django redirect call appends package name to url

I am writing a view for editing a title in django (at 'project_edit.html', and redirecting to the 'project_detail.html' page, but (loosely) following the tutorial here I'm using the redirect method:

def project_edit(request, project_id):
    project = get_object_or_404(Project, pk=project_id)
    if request.method == "POST":
        form = ProjectForm(request.POST)
        if form.is_valid():
            project_update =
            project.title = project_update.title
            return redirect(to='gantt_charts.views.project_detail', kwargs={'pk',}, permanent=True)
            messages.error(request, "Form invalid!")
            return render(request, 'project_edit.html', {'project':project, 'form':form})
        form = ProjectForm()
    return render(request, 'project_edit.html', {'project':project, 'form':form})

In the tutorial, they also use redirect:

def post_new(request):
    if request.method == "POST":
        form = PostForm(request.POST)
        if form.is_valid():
            post =
   = request.user
            return redirect('blog.views.post_detail',
        form = PostForm()
    return render(request, 'blog/post_edit.html', {'form': form})

But when I click my link http://localhost:8000/project/2/edit and submit my form, I get sent to: http://localhost:8000/project/2/gantt_charts.views.project_detail

I cannot fathom why.

Looking at the redirect definition in and then the resolve_url definition, my only guess is that it drops to the bottom and it just returned as is. Why isn't the lookup performed?


Here are my url patterns for that app:

urlpatterns = patterns('', 
    url(r'^(?:project)?/?$', views.project_list), 
    url(r'^project/(?P<project_id>\d+)/edit$', views.project_edit), 
    url(r'^project/(?P<project_id>\d+)/[A-z\\-]{0,50}$', views.project_detail), 


Add a name to your project detail url:

                       views.project_detail, name='project_detail`),

And then refer to this name in redirect() call:

return redirect('project_detail',, permanent=True)
