Priority: major Milestone:

My model is extending TimeStampedModel? class of django-extensions. However, I get the following error when I do "./ migrate blog"

Traceback (most recent call last):

Yes, you'll need to make sure South knows about the field; you can use the instructions in ExtendingIntrospection for that (more precisely, something like:)

from south.modelsinspector import add_introspection_rules
add_introspection_rules(rules, ["^django_extensions\.db\.fields"])

Ahem. I meant:

from south.modelsinspector import add_introspection_rules
add_introspection_rules([], ["^django_extensions\.db\.fields"])

If you want a quick explanation, I'm saying that all models in the django_extensions.db.fields module are fine to introspect with no additional rules (since they're all very simple subclasses of core Django fields, which South knows about).
