Decoupled urls syntax in docs differs from what works on my platform

Reported by: chris.pagnutti@… Owned by: nobody

I'm just running through the tutorial and found that at the end of Part 3, where decoupled urls are introduced, I was getting an error which was resolved by removing the single quotes. Like this

<li><a href="{% url polls.views.detail %}">{{ poll.question }}</a></li>

Maybe this is platform specific? I'm running django on arch linux installed from the official repos.

You're following the tutorial for the in-development version of Django, but using an earlier release (probably 1.4).

Please use the documentation for your version of Django.

Duplicate of many other tickets.

In [4da1d0fd65e01abe013e0d5a9174b81c6bbfa677]:

Added a warning about the {% url %} syntax change

at the point where it bites most beginners.

Refs #18787, #18762, #18756, #18723, #18705, #18689 and several duplicates.
