How to fix the Python Django MultiValueDictKeyError error?

To fix the Python Django MultiValueDictKeyError error, we use the dictionary get method to get the dict value and return a default if the dict key doesn’t exist.

For instance, we write

is_private = request.POST.get('is_private', False)

to call get on request.POST to get the is_private dict value from the POST request payload.

And if is_private wasn’t sent, then we return False.
