#11628 closed (fixed)

Incorrect comment in part 1 of tutorial

Reported by: tommstein@… Owned by: nobody
Component: Documentation Version: master
Severity: Keywords:
Cc: Triage Stage: Ready for checkin
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no

In the last big box full of example code in part 1 of the tutorial, it says

# Get the poll whose year is 2007. Of course, if you're going through this
# tutorial in another year, change as appropriate.
>>> Poll.objects.get(pub_date__year=2007)
<Poll: What's up?>

I first tried this with the parameter set to 2009 as instructed by the comment, and got a DoesNotExist exception. Then it occurred to me that a little earlier in the page we had set the year to 2007, so the comment saying to change the year does nothing but mess you up.

This is actually against version 1.1, but that's still not an option in the Version dropdown. Maybe that should be its own ticket.

(In [11538]) Fixed #11628 -- Corrected the tutorial, removing instructions to update the year where that isn't required. Thanks to tommstein for the report.
