Actually, none of the links (Writing models, Model field reference, Related objects reference, etc.) work with the url given. The problem with is that it is missing a trailing slash. If you use instead all the links on the page work. So, is there somewhere in the docs that you followed a link to this page and got the url without the trailing slash or did you enter in the browser directly? If the former, we need to fix where the link is specified, if the latter I'm not sure what can be done about it.

  • Component changed from Uncategorized to Documentation
  • Resolution invalid deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened
  • Summary changed from Broke link in "Model field reference" to Getting doc page at URL without trailing slash breaks all links

In the latter case it seems like it should be possible (and not too difficult) to either redirect with appended slash or just make the URL a 404 if it doesn't have the trailing slash. Either one seems preferable to being able to load doc pages with every link on the page broken (I can foresee that being a source of many spurious bug reports on down the line).

Given that, reopening with adjusted Summary.

Agreed. I've just noticed that some of the doc search links come back without trailing slashes (for example, search for Admin in the docs and the first link (to tutorial part 2) has no trailing slash, so if you follow it links from that page don't work). Seems redirecting with an appended slash would be best, but the webserver config for djangoproject is outside my ken so someone else hopefully knows how to fix it up.

Not sure why it wasn't marked as such in the commit log, but I believe this was just fixed by r9097.
