    v1 v2  
    88 1. make a directory in your template path named ``admin_copies``
    99 2. copy change_form.html from your Django install's contrib/admin/templates/admin
    10  3. create your admin/project_name/model_name/change_form.html:
    11     the template loader will look first in your template_dirs before looking in the app directories, i.e. django.contrib.admin.
     10 3. create the template to override admin, in this case admin/auction/participant/change_form.html (the template loader find it because it looks first in your template_dirs before looking in the app directories, i.e. django.contrib.admin.)
    1211 4. your change_form.html will look something like:
    13 
    1412   {{{
    1513{% extends "admin_copies/change_form" %}
     
    3028   This makes the layout use a sidebar and populates it with some links for related functions or data.

    32 You need the admin_copies directory because you can not extend admin/change_form because it will never be found--you are editing the very file that overrides it. So you give the template loader another place to look.  Hence, the copy.
