I have two manytomany fields in my model, with both pointing to the same model.
in the admin interface when i add an item from within this model, the second combo box doesn't update without refreshing the page.

I've noticed this, too.

It seems only to happen when the target of the ManyToManyField (i.e. the class provided as the first positional argument) contains a non-default primary key.

So, as a temporary workaround, you could try ensuring that:


isn't present in the constructors for any of the fields in the many-to-many target class. This works for me.

  • Summary changed from Update Multiple ManytoMany Fields Admin to Update all fields related to the same model when adding an item
  • Triage Stage changed from Unreviewed to Accepted
  • Version changed from magic-removal to SVN

This would require some javascript help, and doesn't just happen for ManyToManyFields. This is something that comes up often enough that I am going to mark accepted.
