Hi Pabba,

I struggled on this as well. Because it is a simple_tag it should be placed between {% %} not {{ }}.

{% load fairy_extras %}

There {% conjugate_is num_elf %} {{ num_elf }} el{{ num_elf|pluralize:"f,ves" }}.

Check out the django docs here for more info: https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.11/howto/custom-template-tags/
