The admin’s recommended use is limited to an organization’s internal management tool. It’s not intended for building your entire front end around.


  • Add 'django.contrib.admin' along with its dependencies – django.contrib.auth, django.contrib.contenttypes, django.contrib.messages, and django.contrib.sessions – to your INSTALLED_APPS setting.
  • Configure a DjangoTemplates backend in your TEMPLATES setting with django.template.context_processors.request, django.contrib.auth.context_processors.auth, and django.contrib.messages.context_processors.messages in the ‘context_processors’ option of OPTIONS.
  • If you have used cutomised MIDDLEWARE setting, django.contrib.auth.middleware.AuthenticationMiddleware and django.contrib.messages.middleware.MessageMiddleware must be included.

Make following changes in





from django.contrib import admin
from django.urls import path, include
# Adds site header, site title, index title to the admin side. = 'Geeks For Geeks' = 'GFG' = 'Welcome Geeks'
urlpatterns = [
    path('', include('main.urls')),
