First time here? Check out the FAQ!

runserver is not working after askbot migration.

After runserver

*                      *
*   Askbot self-test   *
*                      *

Please attend to the following:

"askbot.skins.loaders.Loader" must be the first element of TEMPLATE_LOADERS

If necessary, type ^C (Ctrl-C) to stop the program.

I get this but I cannot see anything in my local server.

It is normal - the message that you've posted actually tells you what to do with the file.

This is the output of the startup procedure which runs every time in the beginning of compilation of the application code.

Nothing can be shown, at least with django if it is not set up correctly. We at least try to tell you on the console what to do. Django will just give a traceback which may be harder to decipher.
