RoutablePageMixin + i18n + Preview = not working

See original GitHub issue

Today I’ve found strange issue. I have some page class:

class BlogPage(Page):


urlpatterns = [
    url(r'^wagtailadmin/', include(wagtailadmin_urls)),
    url(r'^doc/', include(wagtaildocs_urls)),

urlpatterns += i18n_patterns(
    url(r'', include(wagtail_urls)),

When I click “Preview” button in admin page, I see following requests:

[25/Jul/2016 13:29:19] "GET /wagtailadmin/pages/preview/ HTTP/1.1" 200 10327
[25/Jul/2016 13:29:20] "GET /wagtailadmin/pages/preview_loading/ HTTP/1.1" 200 9844
[25/Jul/2016 13:29:23] "POST /wagtailadmin/pages/19/edit/preview/ HTTP/1.1" 200 9594

And all works fine. But now I want to modify my page class:

class BlogPage(RoutablePageMixin, Page):

    @route(r'^tag/(\w+)/$', name='tag')
    def tag(self, request, tag):

Wagtail admin is still working. But when I open same page and click “Preview” - I see 404 page:

Page not found (404)
Request Method:     GET
Request URL:
Raised by:  wagtail.wagtailcore.views.serve

You can notice, that language tag appears in URI, but it shouldn’t - i18n isn’t enabled for admin pages. And now there are following requests:

[25/Jul/2016 13:35:52] "GET /wagtailadmin/pages/19/edit/ HTTP/1.1" 200 173884

I’ve also tried to remove any routes:

class BlogPage(RoutablePageMixin, Page):
    ... (only fields here)

And requests are now:

[25/Jul/2016 13:37:17] "GET /wagtailadmin/pages/preview/ HTTP/1.1" 200 10327
[25/Jul/2016 13:37:18] "GET /wagtailadmin/pages/preview_loading/ HTTP/1.1" 200 9844

I think you’re missing the “main” view on the routable page, this must be defined when you switch to using the RoutablePageMixin.

Try adding the following to your model:

from django.template import TemplateResponse

    def main(self, request):
        return TemplateResponse(request, self.get_template(), self.get_context())

If you need further support, please post in our support group instead:!forum/wagtail
