The quintessential app to learn from is of course a blog.
Started using a simple Post model. Added the new post form and view. Can now successfully insert posts into the DB.
-- create the detail page that will show the post after saving
-- when redirecting, how can I make the redirect URL decoupled from the urls.py of the parent app?
i.e. if the parent app has the following mapping:
‘^blog/' -> pass to blog.urls.urlpatterns
the blog app has mappings for
‘^post/new/' -> new post
‘^post/([A-Za-z-])/' -> post detail
inside the view, I want to redirect to "post/", but with respect to the app, it should be "blog/post/"
I should subscribe to one of the Django mailing lists to ask stuff like this.
