At the start of "Writing your first Django app, part 4" in the first template code in the section "Write a simple form", I initially wondered where forloop had come from. The documentation text (templates.txt) explains the magic, but a pointer to this seems a good idea.

So, in the quick rundown list that follows the template, I suggest you add:

  • The forloop.counter is an automatic index associated with the for loop that starts at 1. For more information on <whateverformat>forloop</format> variables, see the <whateverlink>forloop</link> documentation.
