Did another 2 days of django. This time round the setting up is much simpler. Managed to fix some bugs myself. Now I am trying to work with Pinax template. Realized how little documentation / tutorials Pinax has online. The tutorial I have is more than 3 years old! A lot of the commands are deprecated.
Well I think my next step is to figure out how to use github to install a basic Pinax template. Then use the tutorial to add an app to the basic Pinax template. Then perhaps learn a bit more about how to use the apps that Pinax already has.
