As I understand it, you're supposed to use __unicode__ not __str__ for models.

    5252==== Probable cause ====

    54 You may have forgotten to create a {{{__str__()}}} function for your model. Django calls {{{__str__()}}} to find out how to display objects in the admin interface. An alternate cause is the string you return from {{{__str__()}}} includes brackets (an therefore looks like an html tag), and is cleaned up by the {{{strip_tags}}} template filter, resulting in blank entries. 
    55  
    56 ==== Solution ==== 
    57  
    58 Add a correct {{{__str__()}}} function (without brackets in the output) to all your models. Make it a habit so it becomes automatic.
