In the latest CS50 - pset7 - CS50 Finance, it is advised to use generate_password_hash instead of pwd_context.encrypt.

Also, in the template, there is a change where instead of url_for('register'), /register" is used.

I am unable to register and keep getting apology message. I am unable to register for an account and log in (despite login and logout already working)! And I am unable to see my rows via phpLiteAdmin or sqlite3.

Are we suppose to register only after implementation of all the functions or am I missing something? Thanks!

REGISTER

    def register():
    """Register user"""

    # User reached route via POST (as by submitting a form via POST)
    if request.method == "POST":

        # Ensure username was submitted
        if not request.form.get("username"):
            return apology("must provide username!")

        # Ensure password was submitted
        elif not request.form.get("password"):
            return apology("must provide password")

        # Ensure password confirmation was submitted
        elif not request.form.get("password_confirmation"):
            return apology("must provide password confirmation")

        # Ensure passwords are matching
        elif request.form.get("password") != request.form.get("password_confirmation"):
            return apology("Sorry, password didn't match. Try Again!")

        # Hash password / Store password hash_password =
        hashed_password = generate_password_hash(request.form.get("password"))

        # Add user to database
        result = db.execute("INSERT INTO users (username, hash) VALUES(:username, :hash)",
                username = request.form.get("usermame"),
                hash = hashed_password)

        if not result:
            return apology("The username is already taken")

        rows = db.execute("SELECT * FROM users WHERE username = :username",
                  username = request.form.get("username"))


        # Remember which user has logged in
        session["user_id"] = rows[0]["id"]

        # Redirect user to home page
        return redirect("/")

    # User reached route via GET (as by clicking a link or via redirect)
    else:
        return render_template("register.html")

My template (register.html):

<form action="/register" method="post">
    <div class="form-group">
        <input autocomplete="off" autofocus class="form-control" 
 name="username" placeholder="Username" type="text"/>
    </div>
    <div class="form-group">
        <input class="form-control" name="password" placeholder="Password" 
 type="password"/>
    </div>
    <div class="form-group">
        <input class="form-control" name="password_confirmation" 
 placeholder="Password (again)" type="password"/>
    </div>
    <button class="btn btn-primary" type="submit">Register</button>
</form>

  • Found the error, spelled "username" as "usermame" while defining results and adding user to the database.
