Description

Hello,

In the page Writing your first Django app, part 2 (http://www.djangoproject.com/documentation/tutorial02/), when you explain how to add the poll choices fields in the add poll page, you should tell the reader to restart the server, since you made him change the data model. Else, nothing new will display.

I think this can be very misleading for newcomers, since following the exact instructions will not lead to the result.

I'm discovering Django at the moment, and it is very impressive!

Regards,

Cyril CRESSENT

If you're running under the development server, changes to the code should be picked up automatically. It's only under a production server such as Apache that a restart is needed to pick up changes.
