Confusing message on the default Django home page mentioning the debug settings
|Therry van Neerven
|Patch needs improvement:
Description (last modified by )
When having no home page configured and when running the configuration with DEBUG=False the following message is shown:
You are seeing this page because DEBUG=True is in your settings file and you have not configured any URLs.
(Check the attachment for a screenshot)
This message is confusing as I'm running Django with DEBUG=False.
Also I have configured URLs, but they are not at the root of the project.
I believe that this message should be improved and stating that a the user should configure a route to replace the default page.
Update: I noticed that for this specific view the engine is forced to be in debug [source]
I still believe that the message should be changed in order to communicate correctly what's going on.
