Description

The section entitled "Using a custom user model when starting a project", when followed, seems to cause the "Users" section of the admin site to disappear.

https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.10/topics/auth/customizing/#using-a-custom-user-model-when-starting-a-project

The simple fix to this is to register the custom User model with UserAdmin. This is not mentioned in the documentation.
