Ok, you won't believe this one: neither do I
(and I've seen a lot of mistakes done by myself during my programming years --- I'm not such an experienced programmer, but I try)
I'm so involved in internationalization, that I'm always reading online questions about this topic, trying to learn something more, and to help other people in the (rare) fortunate case that I know how to help them.
In several communities/forums/etc I've stumbled on several people posting tickets (with titles like "Django Internationalization not working" )
where the error was simply that they're copy-pasting the code in this documentation part
without noticing that in this line
<input name="next" type="hidden" value="/next/page/" />
/next/page/" string is just an example.
(They actually used
"/next/page/" as a value)
Ok, things likte this can happen to everyone, we know that.
At the beginning I thought that it was because the askers were newbies, but I've seen this issue also from more advanced people...
The reason could be maybe distraction, maybe faith... I don't know...
But the fact is that too many programmers made the same mistake,
so maybe this part of the documentation could be improved in someway
(I don't know... maybe a simple change like "
/next/page/path/" or "
next_page" or "
desired_next_page" could help)
