Search results doesn't show in the template (Django)


I am very new to Django and I am creating a very simple project. However, the "search" part of my project is having some issues. Every time I try to search, it redirect me to the search template but not showing the data from the database. No error message. Here’s my code…

class Userprofile(models.Model):
    use_id = models.IntegerField()
    first_name = models.CharField(max_length = 50)
    last_name = models.CharField(max_length = 50)
    position = models.CharField(max_length = 50)
    email = models.CharField(max_length= 100)
    password = models.CharField(max_length= 100)

    def __str__(self):
        return self.first_name

account_list.html This is the template where the search bar is located

        <div class="search">
            <form method="post" action="{% url 'account_search' %}" autocomplete="off">
                {% csrf_token %}
                <input type="text" name="acc_search" placeholder="Search Account">
                <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Search" style="width: 24%"></p>

def account_search(request):
    if request.method == "POST":
        account_search = request.POST.get('acc_search')
        accounts = Userprofile.objects.filter(use_id__contains=account_search) | Userprofile.objects.filter(first_name__contains=account_search) | Userprofile.objects.filter(last_name__contains=account_search) | Userprofile.objects.filter(position__contains=account_search) | Userprofile.objects.filter(email__contains=account_search)
        return render(request, 'core/account_search.html', {'account_search': account_search, 'accounts':accounts})
        return render(request, 'core/account_search.html', {})


        {% if account_search %}

        <div class="main-right">
            <div class="h-1">
                <h1>'{{ account_search }}' in Accounts</h1>

            <table rules="all" style="border: 1px">
                    <td>Personnel's ID</td>
                    {% for userprofile in userprofiles %}
                            <td>{{ userprofile.use_id }}</td>
                            <td>{{ userprofile.first_name }}
                                {{ userprofile.last_name }}</td>
                            <td>{{ userprofile.position }}</td>
                            <td>{{ }}</td>
                            <td class="action_btn">
                                <a href="account_edit/{{ }}" class="edit_btn">Edit</a>
                                <a href="account_delete/{{ }}" class="delete_btn">Delete</a>
                    {% endfor %}

        {% else %}
            <h1 class="h1-else">You forgot to enter the text in the input box.</h1>

        {% endif %}

I’ve searched in the Google and tried but I can’t find any solution or any discussion on how I can fix it.

I hope someone can help me, thank you. And I’m sorry for my bad English.

You are passing accounts as context variable from the view, but in template, you are looping through userprofiles. Hence change this line in template:

{% for userprofile in userprofiles %}


 {% for userprofile in accounts %}

You are passing accounts as "accounts" in the view, but looking for "userprofiles" in the template. You have to use "accounts" in the template as well.

{% for userprofile in accounts %}
