Redirect after login simply appends LOGIN_REDIRECT_URL

I'm very new to django and have been struggling to implement authentication for two weeks now.

When I successfully login from my

/auth/login
page I want to be redirected to
/auth/logged_in
. However, it redirects me to
/auth/login/auth/logged_in
instead. I can't figure out the problem. Here are the files I think youight need to help me.

settings.py

Answer

Change:

LOGIN_REDIRECT_URL = 'auth/logged_in'

to:

LOGIN_REDIRECT_URL = '/auth/logged_in'

You're redirecting to a path that is appended to the current url. You need to use a leading slash to redirect to a path that is appended to the domain root.
