Where did the Askbot code come from, what Django version do you have?

Github master , I think Django is the one in requirements. 1.5.4

I have the same problem on OpenShift. I thought it was related to the environment.

This is because django-robots app was updated and Askbot did not have fixed version requirement. Added that in the repository. A release will follow shortly.

The Django version is the problem. This post:

For fix it, You can edit the file:


class RuleAdminForm(forms.ModelForm):
class Meta:
    model = Rule
    #fields = "__all__"  ---> Comment this line.

Btw, Why should I need more Karma to post a Link? That doesn't have any sense!!!

Karma limit to post links is there because of the spammers.

I have the same problem.

Try with:

pip install django-robot==1.0

and after restart your server.

This doesn't work, I get an error: Could not find any downloads that satisfy the requirement django-robot==1.0

It should say pip install django-robots==1.0 i.e. django-robots not django-robot. Works for us. Restart wasn't required.

I have met the same problem, It takes me all day long to reinstall and uninstall them. I think I make some mistakes when I install askbot, after I analysis the traceback infomation, I found it is beacuse the Django form part has a query using get method, but django 1.5 didn't support it. Hope someone can fix it.

Now, you can download the newest source code from git, they have fix the problem. :) have a good day!
