Description

Hello,

I've been trying to get user profiles working for almost 2 weeks now. I'm a first time django user, which is probably the cause of this problem. Nonetheless I've searched endlessly within your documentation for how to properly use User profiles. I finally found the answer searching with google, the hard part was knowing what to search for. The answer I found is contained here: http://sam.bluwiki.com/blog/2008/05/extending-user-model-profiles-in-django.php I get how to setup the user profile, the hard part was understanding if you create the user object first, or the profile. The blog clarified for me that the profile is it's own entity which you connect to a user (by assigning it). So the base of my confusion was the relationship of a profile to a user and vice versa. I'm not sure how many people out there have such problems, but I'm sure it can't hurt to include some extra info.

Thank you for all your work!
-Dan
