undocumented problems with Multi-table inheritance and Admin

Reported by: ekellner <ekellner@…> Owned by: nobody
Component: Documentation Version: master
Severity: Keywords: admin, model inheritance
Cc: Triage Stage: Accepted
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: UI/UX:


The admin interface is not working with multi-table inheritance, seemingly because admin uses old-forms. It seems unlikely that it will be fixed on trunk, but rather in the newforms-admin branch and then merged up.

As this bug is not going to be fixed imminently, many users will be encountering it and trying to debug it. It would be nice not to waste their time, and let them know this is a known issue in the Multi-table inheritance documentation.

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

Since newforms-admin is the admin now, and since documenting bugs isn't a particularly worthwhile use of anyone's time (since the time spent documenting a bug and then removing the documentation when the bug is fixed likely is longer the time needed to fix the bug in the first place), I'm closing this as invalid.
