    264264        :exc:`django.contrib.auth.models.SiteProfileNotAvailable` if the

     266        :exc:`django.core.exceptions.ObjectDoesNotExist` if the user does not

    you'd like to have available, and also add a 
    470471:class:`~django.db.models.Field.OneToOneField` named ``user`` from your model
    471472to the :class:`~django.contrib.auth.models.User` model. This will ensure only
    472473one instance of your model can be created for each
    473 :class:`~django.contrib.auth.models.User`.
     474:class:`~django.contrib.auth.models.User`. For example::
     476    from django.contrib.auth.models import User
     478    class UserProfile(models.Model):
     479        # This field is required.
     480        user = models.OneToOneField(User)
     482        # Other fields here
     483        unicorns = models.ManyToManyField(Unicorn)
     484        favorite_animal = models.CharField(max_length=20, default="Dragons.")
    475487To indicate that this model is the user profile model for a given site, fill in
    476488the setting :setting:`AUTH_PROFILE_MODULE` with a string consisting of the
    instance of the user profile model associated with that 
    498510The method :class:`~django.contrib.auth.models.User.get_profile()`
    499 does not create the profile, if it does not exist. You need to
    500 register a handler for the signal
    501 :attr:`django.db.models.signals.post_save` on the User model, and, in
    502 the handler, if created=True, create the associated user profile.
     511does not create a profile if one does not exist. You need to register a handler
     512for the User model's :attr:`django.db.models.signals.post_save` signal and, in
     513the handler, if ``created`` is ``True``, create the associated user profile::
     515    # in models.py
     517    from django.contrib.auth.models import User
     518    from django.db.models.signals import post_save
     520    # definition of UserProfile from above
     521    # ...
     523    def create_user_profile(sender, instance, created, **kwargs):
     524        if created:
     525            UserProfile.objects.create(user=instance)
    504 For more information, see `Chapter 12 of the Django book`_.
