I have tried to set up the blog as described in
i then modified the model for the Post Class in order to rearrange field ordering in the admin section as follows, where the --> arrows denote my changes:

class META:

admin = meta.Admin(


fields = (

(None, {'fields': ('title', 'slug', 'date', 'description')}),


###--->modification end

list_display = ('slug', 'title', 'date'),
search_fields = ('title', 'description'),
date_hierarchy = ('date',),


this then leads to the following error output from django:

Traceback (most recent call last):

self.result = application(self.environ, self.start_response)

raise wrapped

hope this is not just a user error on my side.

Best regards, volker
