Description

Hi guys, i have spent hours looking for the solution and i think the documentation is wrong.
my code wasn't working and now it is after i did the fix.

urlpatterns = patterns(,

('$', direct_to_template, { 'template': 'abc.html' }),
(r'
polls/$', 'polls.views.index'),

)

The code above does not work because the docs say to me put 'direct_to_template', with '" , and not direct_to_template without it.
The doc url: http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.2/ref/generic-views/

After hours i found the correct solution in the djangobook. There they say the right thing:
http://www.djangobook.com/en/1.0/chapter09/

Thanks and hope to help with that.

First of all, please use formatting and the preview button when reporting.

As for the docs, they're correct and accurate. They are reference docs, so they assume that you at least done the tutorial and thus know how patterns() work: http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/intro/tutorial03/#simplifying-the-urlconfs.
