jquery data not inputting to postgresql database (django)

I have a datepicker in my base.html. The UI calendar appears in the page, so I know the libraries, etc. are set up ok, but when I submit, the date is not added into the database. Other data on the form is input.

I don't believe it's a formatting issue either, since I added a new CharField column and still get no results.


from django import forms
from widgets import *
import datetime
from django.forms import widgets

class DateTestSaveForm(forms.Form):
    date_nm = forms.CharField(
        label=u'Date Name',
    fromdate = forms.DateField(label=u'date of birth', input_formats=['%d/%m/%Y', '%m/%d/%Y',], required=False, widget=widgets.DateInput(attrs={
        'class': 'required'
    testdate = forms.CharField(label=u'test')


  <script type="text/javascript">

    $(function() {
      // $( "#datepicker" ).datepicker({ dateFormat: 'YYYY-MM-DD' });
    $( "#id_fromdate" ).datepicker();

    $(function() {
      // $( "#datepicker" ).datepicker({ dateFormat: 'YYYY-MM-DD' });
    $( "#id_testdate" ).datepicker();

        if form.is_valid():
            date_nm, dummy = DateTest.objects.get_or_create(
            fromdate = form.cleaned_data['fromdate']
            testdate = form.cleaned_data['testdate']
            return HttpResponseRedirect('main_page.html') 
        form = DateTestSaveForm()
    return render_to_response('datetest_save.html', {
        'form': form, 

def main_page(request):
    return render_to_response(


{% extends "base.html" %}
{% block title %}DateTest Title{% endblock %}
{% block head %}DateTest Head{% endblock %}

{% block content %}

<form method="post" action=".">{% csrf_token %}
{{ form.as_p }}
 <input type="submit" value="save it" /> 

{% endblock %}

Thanks for your help.

EDIT: Changed forms.DateField to forms.CharField in TestDate EDIT: Added views.py, added datetest.html


Figured it out. Missing the save method.
