[Fixed]-Django rejecting urlencoded parameters in POST request?


request.POST is not a normal dictionary, it is actually a QueryDict object. You need to convert it to a traditional dict, before you can use it as such:


I must say, the above is not something I would put in production – there are no checks as to the contents of the dictionary – any malicious/junk can be used to create objects.

You should use forms to validate the input, and then create objects, like this:

class TransactionForm(forms.ModelForm):
   class Meta:
       model = Transaction

user_input = TransactionForm(request.POST())
if user_input.is_valid():
