I have a simple model as follows:

RATING_CHOICES = zip(range(1, 6), range(1, 6))
class Rating(models.Model):

    value = models.IntegerField(choices=RATING_CHOICES)
    additional_note = models.TextField(null=True, blank=True)
    from_user = models.ForeignKey(User, related_name="from_user")
    to_user = models.ForeignKey(User, related_name="to_user")
    shared_object = models.ForeignKey(ObjectDetail, null=True, blank=True)
    dtobject = models.DateTimeField(auto_now_add=True)

From the above model I generate a model form, in my forms.py as follows:

class RatingForm(ModelForm):

     class Meta:
          model = Rating
          exclude = ('from_user', 'dtobject',

In my urls I try the following:

url(r'^rate/(?P<form_type>[\w]+)/(?P<oid>\d+)/(?P<oslug>[\w-]+)/$', 'rating_form', name="rating_form"),                     

And in my views, the following:

def rating_form(form_type = None, oid = None, oslug=None):

    print form_type
    form = RatingForm(data=request.POST or None)

    if request.POST and form.is_valid():
        return HttpResponseRedirect("https://stackoverflow.com/")
        return render(request, "share.html", {'form' : form })

Doing this gives me the following error:

rating_form() got multiple values for keyword argument ‘form_type’

Additional Details:

the first argument to your view should be request
