Common Pitfalls - Data Models
the 'edit_inline' option
As mentioned elsewhere in the documentation, if you are using edit_inline in data model's foreign key, be sure the rest of your fields use the option core=True. Failure to do so will lead to obscure errors or no errors.
Errors like the following:
AttributeError: 'User' object has no attribute 'get_message_list' ProgrammingError: ERROR: invalid input syntax for integer: ""
providing an image field in without media configured
If you are going to have an image field in your data model, you have to have a directory configured where the images will be saved. The entry in the database for the image field is a string of the filesystem path where the image is/will be saved.
Data not being posted to the database with a refresh of the "add" screen.
