#5901 closed (invalid)

r'^polls/' vs r'^admin/'

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: nobody
Component: Documentation Version: master
Severity: Keywords: admin site
Cc: Triage Stage: Unreviewed
Has patch: no Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: UI/UX:


From a new user perspective... This part is a big stumbling block for me.
This page documents how to get the polls working in the but disables the admin page... It should be expanded to include how to keep the admin site working... The instinctual answer would be to add the following:

from django.conf.urls.defaults import *

urlpatterns = patterns('',
    (r'^admin/', include('django.contrib.admin.urls')),
    (r'^polls/', include('mysite.polls.urls')),

but this doesn't work because:

ViewDoesNotExist at /admin/
Tried vote in module mysite.polls.views. Error was: 'module' object has no attribute 'vote'

Request Method:	GET
Request URL:	http://mysite/admin/
Exception Type:	ViewDoesNotExist
Exception Value:	Tried vote in module mysite.polls.views. Error was: 'module' object has no attribute 'vote'
Exception Location:	/sw/lib/python2.4/site-packages/django/core/ in _get_callback, line 184
Python Executable:	/sw/sbin/apache2
Python Version:	2.4.3

Your instinctual answer was correct. The problem you're getting is actually related to a separate bug, so I'll close this.
