Superuser isn't marked as being staff
I get the message "Superuser isn't marked as being staff" when the method create_superuser is executed:
Why is happened this?
from django.contrib.auth.models import BaseUserManager class UserManager(BaseUserManager): def create_user(self, email, dob, accepted_tos=None, password=None): if not accepted_tos or accepted_tos is None: raise ValueError("Users must accept the terms") user = self.model( # make sure that all the email addresses throughout your app are formatted the same way email = self.normalize_email(email), dob = dob, accepted_tos = True ) user.set_password(password) user.save() return user def create_superuser(self, email, dob, password): user = self.create_user( email, dob, accepted_tos, password, ) user.is_staff = True user.accepted_tos = True user.is_superuser = True user.save() return user
You're really close, actually. Because you're tossing the values up to the
create_user function you need to set your
accepted_tos = True inside your
self.create_user call rather than after it. If you don't, then when it hits the if-check in your
create_user it will default to
None. Also, you should also be setting your
password = password inside the call as well, since you don't want blank password superusers running around.
