Erroneous quotes in view tutorial

Reported by: mark@… Owned by: nobody
Component: Documentation Version: 1.4
Severity: Normal Keywords:

An example in the view tutorial says:

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

but it seems that it should say:

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

I'm new to Python and django, so this might be something I'm not understanding, but when I had the quotes in it didn't work and when I took them out it did work.

You're reading the documentation for the development version of Django, but you've installed Django 1.4. There has been a been a subtle change to the {% url %} tag introduced over the last few versions, so there is a difference in the tutorial between the 1.4 version and the development/1.5 version.
