#237 closed defect (invalid)

get_absolute_url doesn't show up right in admin

I defined a get_absolute_url in a model to give '/files/something/' urls for objects. The admin shows the "view on site" link, but that link point's to /r/14/1 in my test - the view-on-site link doesn't point to the return value of the get_absolute_url method.

This has to do with the way those "view on site" links work; if you click on the link you'll see that you're redirected to the object's real URL from that /r/ place. It's an indirect link because of the way Django's admin handles multiple sites (look at django.views.defaults.shortcut)

Ok, so it's just missing the documentation for the /r/ stuff - because none of the tutorial settings do set up an urlmatcher for /r/ and so you just get a 404 when clicking the "view on site" link.
