You can place this code above your form and it will list out all errors in your form if there are errors. Sometimes I like listing the errors at the top of the form because I think it looks cleaner. Make sure you add error_messages={'required': 'My detailed error here'} in your view.py for your form.

{% if form.errors %}
<div id="form-error">
	<p>The operation could not be performed because one or more error(s) occurred.<br />Please resubmit the form after making the following changes:</p>
	<ul>
	{% for field in form %}
	<li>{{ field.errors|striptags }}</li>
	{% endfor %}
	</ul>
</div>
{% endif %}

replace < li>{{ field.errors|striptags }}< /li>

with: {% if field.errors %}< li>{{ field.errors|striptags }}< /li>{% endif %}

so that fields with no error don't show up as an empty < li> element

p.s. remove the spaces i've put in the li tags, this site doesn't let me paste html! eurgh

This is a better one, it shows field name to clarify the "this field is required" message.
