After creating signup for users I am unable to login as admin to django project

(adm) #1


I am quite new to Django so hope this one is simple.

After creating user sign up with this tutorial:

I am unable to login to my admin user and the following error pops up:

RelatedObjectDoesNotExist at /admin/login/

User has no profile.

Request Method: POST
Request URL:
Django Version: 2.2
Exception Type: RelatedObjectDoesNotExist
Exception Value: User has no profile.

My guess is that Django thinks I am normal user without password confirmed.

Maybe it is something to do with this view?:
def signup(request):
if request.method == ‘POST’:
form = SignUpForm(request.POST)
if form.is_valid():
user =
user.is_active = False
current_site = get_current_site(request)
subject = ‘Activate Your MySite Account’
message = render_to_string(‘signup/account_activation_email.html’, {
‘user’: user,
‘domain’: current_site.domain,
‘uid’: urlsafe_base64_encode(force_bytes(,
‘token’: account_activation_token.make_token(user),
user.email_user(subject, message)
return redirect(‘account_activation_sent’)
form = SignUpForm()
return render(request, ‘signup/signup.html’, {‘form’: form})

Anyway, after taking of the app off the INSTALLED APPS and commenting out urls for that app admin is available.

Any guess of what might have happened?

ps. What I also have been doing is checking out each variant of login user as per article commenting out/replacing each parts of code with the new one suggested by the author. :slight_smile:

on how to extend Django user properly.

Thanks for pointing in the right direction.

What do you mean by ‘mapping user to profile’?

Kind regards

Once you create a User object you should create the Profile object with required fields for that user.

Had a similar issue where I was creating a profile for a user but it was not created for the admin user. I solved it by using a signal on the user’s save method to create a profile within Something like this:

from django.db.models.signals import post_save
from django.contrib.auth.models import User
from django.dispatch import receiver

class Profile(models.Model):
field = models.CharField(max_length=5, blank=True, null=True)

Note: blank=True, null=True or a default value is required if you want to create the profile without specifying a value.

@receiver(post_save, sender=User)
def save_profile(sender, instance, created, **kwargs):
if created:

Someone may have a better solutions… not a Django wizard by any means.
