No module named avatars

Hello everyone.

It is very hard to install askbot to my site. It is giving errors continual. I am solving these step by step but now i stacked. It gives me this error.

' ImproperlyConfigured: Error importing middleware askbot.middleware.view_log: "No module named avatars" '

I installed django-avatar, i tried different names like avatar or avatars, i changed the words within askbot directory like avatar (not s), but no reason.

Please help me to install this askbot correctly. Thank you.

Sorry, where did you try avatars? In the you'd need to add "avatar" to the list of installed apps.

Hi, please take a look at this doc page:

The app needs to come from the git repo, the actual command is in the documentation.

I would uninstall django-avatar and then re-install it again. It is possible that you have another copy somewhere else. Are you using virtualenv?
