I am just flummoxed. I started the web having just 1 single view in my views.py page, with one line to see if everything was working, namely:
from django.http import HttpResponse
def home(request): return HttpResponse(‘Hello, World!’)
so a few days after I return, I delete that code and paste a different one
return render(request, ‘home.html’, name=‘home’)
and now that home.html page is located in a directory called templates, and has just an html table and yes, I have modified settings.py to indicate where that templates directory is
DIRS’: [ os.path.join(BASE_DIR, ‘templates’) ],
Well, when I go the webpage,I am still seeing the hello world, and is a code that does not exist anymore.
Of course, nothing to do with cookies or browser cache, because apart from having deleted all browsing data, I tried different computers, different browsers, I even shot up Tor that I had never used before.
I am still seeing the hello world. This is incredible.
