FieldError: Cannot resolve keyword 'answer' into field.

Hello, all!

Next is error I've got after selecting any of the previous versions of my edits. How can I fix it?

Thanks! Just fixed in the repo.

We have migrated models from Question, Answer, and Comment to just Post, this bug was due to not changing reference from answer to post.

Besides, I pull lastest git-8a8cde4fb9957ad829682870ec9dc87f0fe50ac7 from repo and do " syncdb & migrate", but problem still in sight. Sorry, fixed after Apache restart.
