TypeError 'x' object has no attribute '__getitem__'


Question

Im getting the error

'CampSite' object has no attribute '__getitem__'

when I save a new CampCon entry in the admin interface. I have one application called campsites that handles the database of campsites, and I have another application called content that handles reviews. I am very new to Django and this is my first non-tutorial based project. I have been racking my brain and searching the web for an answer with no luck. Thank you in advance for your help. Here is my campsite model:

from django.contrib.gis.db import models

class CampSite(models.Model):
    name = models.CharField(max_length=250)
    showers = models.BooleanField()
    flush = models.BooleanField()
    rv = models.BooleanField()
    lonlat = models.PointField(null=True, blank=True)

    objects = models.GeoManager()

    def __unicode__(self):
        return self.name

Here is the content model:

from django.contrib.gis.db import models
from campsites.models import CampSite
from django.contrib.auth.models import User
from activities.models import Activities


class CampCon(models.Model):
    campsite = models.ForeignKey(CampSite)
    trip = models.ForeignKey('Trip')
    Date = models.DateField()
    user = models.ForeignKey(User)
    overall_review = models.TextField()
    facilities_review = models.IntegerField()
    things_to_do = models.IntegerField()
    privacy = models.IntegerField()
    beauty = models.IntegerField()
    overall_rating = models.IntegerField()

    def __unicode__(self):
        return self.campsite

class ImageDB(models.Model):
    campsite = models.ForeignKey(CampSite)
    user = models.ForeignKey(User)
    description = models.CharField(max_length=200)
    image = models.ImageField(upload_to='/home/bobby/Pictures/CampThat')
    date_uploaded = models.DateField()
    date_taken = models.DateField()
    trip = models.ForeignKey('Trip')
    activity = models.ForeignKey(Activities)

    def __unicode__(self):
        return self.campsite

class Trip(models.Model):
    date = models.DateField()
    description = models.CharField(max_length=100)
    title = models.CharField(max_length=100)
    blog = models.TextField()

    def __unicode__(self):
        return self.title

class ActivityCon(models.Model):
    trip = models.ForeignKey(Trip)
    rating = models.IntegerField()
    overall_review = models.TextField()
    activity = models.ForeignKey(Activities)

And here is the full Traceback:

Accepted Answer

Your issue is that your __unicode__ functions are returning model objects when they need to be returning unicode strings.

You can achieve this by adding the unicode() function to your __unicode__ methods:

class CampCon(models.Model):
    campsite = models.ForeignKey(CampSite)
    trip = models.ForeignKey('Trip')
    Date = models.DateField()
    user = models.ForeignKey(User)
    overall_review = models.TextField()
    facilities_review = models.IntegerField()
    things_to_do = models.IntegerField()
    privacy = models.IntegerField()
    beauty = models.IntegerField()
    overall_rating = models.IntegerField()

    def __unicode__(self):
        return unicode(self.campsite)

class ImageDB(models.Model):
    campsite = models.ForeignKey(CampSite)
    user = models.ForeignKey(User)
    description = models.CharField(max_length=200)
    image = models.ImageField(upload_to='/home/bobby/Pictures/CampThat')
    date_uploaded = models.DateField()
    date_taken = models.DateField()
    trip = models.ForeignKey('Trip')
    activity = models.ForeignKey(Activities)

    def __unicode__(self):
        return unicode(self.campsite)

This will call CampSite.__unicode__ which will return campsite.name.

Use this method instead:

   def __unicode__(self):
        return unicode(self.campsite)
