Python Customizing the Django Admin Customizing the List View Test: Search and Filters

Now add a search box to the QuizAdmin class... Task 2

Now add a search box to the QuizAdmin class, and make sure the searched text scans the 'title' and 'description' attributes.

I feel like my answer should work. I know I'm missing something simple...

from django.contrib import admin

from . import models

class QuizAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):
    fields = ['course', 'title', 'description', 'order', 'total_questions']
    list_filter = ['course']
    search_fields = ('title', 'description')

admin.site.register(models.Quiz, QuizAdmin)

Use square brackets instead of parentheses for your search_fields.

thanks that worked
