Lec. 1, Admin Site--CollectionAdmin

Hello all,

I am running into an issue that I cannot figure out. I am not getting errors per se when coding:


def products_count(self,collection):

    url = ( reverse('admin:store_product_changelist')


            + urlencode({

               'collection__id': str(collection.id)


    return format_html('<a href="{}">{}</a>', url,collection.products_count)


def get_queryset(self, request):

    return super().get_queryset(request).annotate(

        products_count= count('product') )

the code executes with code 200, but the changes do not show in the server.

I think this is linked to a new challenge that I am running into.

When I code to solve the autocomplete_fields = [‘collection’], the “ERRORS:
<class ‘store.admin.ProductAdmin’>: (admin.E040) ModelAdmin must define “search_fields”, because it’s referenced by ProductAdmin.autocomplete_fields” and then add “search_fields = [‘title’]” to CollectionAdmin it does not recognize the update and throws the same error.

Any help/suggestion would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, in advance.

I got the same error almost, but it showed up after chapt 13. Editing children using inlines.

My error shows like this:

Traceback (most recent call last):

Let me know if you discuss the mystery error and solution :slight_smile:
