I am creating a form with a textarea, but the textarea does not get rendered along with the form. I apologize if the problem is due to my ignorance of newforms; I am just starting to learn about it.

This is on an svn checkout from about 3 hours ago (Dec 9 2006 around 10:00AM EST)

import django.newforms as newforms
from django.template import Template, Context
class MyForm(newforms.Form):

... field1 = newforms.CharField()
... field2 = newforms.Textarea()

t = Template('{{f}}')
t.render(Context({'f': MyForm()}))

'<tr><td>Field1:</td><td><input type="text" name="field1" /></td></tr>'

This is not a bug. Textarea is a widget not a field. You would need to say:

field2 = CharField(widget=Textarea)
