This is an incredibly simple question and I am ashamed to be asking it here, but I have been Googling answers for the past 3 hours with no results.
Basically, I am trying to send information using an HTML form and accept that information with a Flask python script. The problem is whenever I try to submit the form, it says Cannot POST path/form.html
The HTML Form:
<form method="post"> <label for="firstname">First Name:</label> <input type="text" id="firstname" name="fname" placeholder="firstname"> <label for="lastname">Last Name:</label> <input type="text" id="lastname" name="lname" placeholder="lastname"> <button type="submit">Login</button>
The Python/Flask Code:
from flask import Flask, request, render_template # Flask constructor app = Flask(__name__) # A decorator used to tell the application # which URL is associated function @app.route('/', methods =["GET", "POST"]) def gfg(): if request.method == "POST": # getting input with name = fname in HTML form first_name = request.form.get("fname") # getting input with name = lname in HTML form last_name = request.form.get("lname") return "Your name is "+first_name + last_name return render_template("form.html") if __name__=='__main__': app.run()
I know this should be simple but web development is not my forte and this is really out of my element. Is this a server problem? Thank you in advance.
