Description

The line within the Poll.was_published_today(self) function does not work:

return self.pub_date.date() == datetime.date.today()

The python shell complains that datetime.date object has no attribute 'date'. When I change the line to:
return self.pub_date == datetime.date.today()

it works fine.

pub_date should be a DateTimeField. It looks like you may have made it a DateField instead. A DateTimeField will mean the Python attribute should be a datetime.datetime}} object, which does have a {{{date() method.

Check your models (and database) carefully and, if you're still having troubles, post your models to the django-users list with an explanation of what's going wrong. I just worked through the tutorial quickly up to that point and it worked fine for me, so I suspect there's a typo on your end.
