Urls after recreation

After adding steps in a course, it throws an error for the newly created steps. The older ones, that is, the ones written before adding this url, work perfectly fine!

This is because you are not entering the right step pk in the url. Many people confuse the pk number with the "order" number. The pk number is not shown in the fields within the admin site. It is rather saved in the database.

To check the pk number of the newly created step:

  1. In the admin site, click on "steps".
  2. Click on any step in the list.
  3. You will see in your browser's address bar a url address that looks like this:

The pk number is the one that comes before the word "change" in the end of the url.
