Django - 'function' object is not iterable - Error during template rendering

So, I've been trying to create a user login. When I click submit on my login form, I get this error:

Exception Type: TypeError
Exception Value: 'function' object is not iterable

Here's the full Traceback:

So, If I'm reading the Traceback correctly, the problem is in the {% extends "base.html" %} line of all_poss.html. So would that would mean the problem is actually inside base.html? or in the view that controls all_posts?

My all_posts.html

{% extends "base.html" %}
{% load staticfiles %}

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<meta charset="UTF-8">


{% load staticfiles %}
{% load crispy_forms_tags %}

Edit 1: login.html login.html and register.html are identical modals, one with a login form and the other with the registration one.

{% load staticfiles %}
{% load crispy_forms_tags %}

<div class="modal" id="modal-login">
<div class="modal-dialog">
<div class="modal-content">
<form enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post" action="login/">
<div class="modal-header">
<button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="modal">&times;</button>
<h3 class="modal-title">Log In</h3>
<div class="modal-body">
{% csrf_token %}
{{ authenticationform|crispy }}
<div class="modal-footer">
<input type='submit' class="btn btn-primary" value="Log In" />

Edit 2: register.html

{% load staticfiles %}
{% load crispy_forms_tags %}

<div class="modal" id="modal-register">
<div class="modal-dialog">
<div class="modal-content">
<form enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post" action="register/">
<div class="modal-header">
<button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="modal">&times;</button>
<h3 class="modal-title">Register</h3>
<div class="modal-body">
{% csrf_token %}
{{ registrationform|crispy }}
<div class="modal-footer">
<input type='submit' class="btn btn-primary" value="Register" />


Alright, I was able to solve it.

The problem was apparently in my base.html where I had:

<li><a href="{% url 'profile' %}">{{ user.username }}</a></li>


<li><a href="{% url 'logout' %}">Log Out</a></li>

and I just changed the href="{% %}" tags to "profile/" and "logout/" respectively.
