class PostDetailView(DetailView):
    model = Post
    template_name = "post_detail.html"

    def get_context_data(self, *args, **kwargs):
        context = super(PostDetailView, self).get_context_data()
        post = get_object_or_404(Post, id=self.kwargs['pk'])
        comments = Comment.objects.filter(post=post).order_by('-id')
        total_likes = post.total_likes()
        liked = False
        if post.likes.filter(
            liked = True

        comment_form = CommentForm()

        context["total_likes"] = total_likes
        context["liked"] = liked

        return context

class PostCommentCreateView(CreateView):

Resolved using this code, thank you ``` class PostCommentCreateView(LoginRequiredMixin, CreateView): model = Comment fields = ['content', ] success_url = reverse_lazy('score:post-detail') def post(self, request, *args, **kwargs): form = CommentForm(request.POST) if form.is_valid(): post = print(args, kwargs, request.POST) return redirect('score:post-detail', slug=kwargs['slug']) ```
