Each Answer to this Q is separated by one/two green lines.
In django, if I set a field in a model to a foreign key,
"_id" is appended to the name of that field. How can this be prevented?
When using the foreign field in a model, Django creates two fields: One for the actual link, and one that references the other model.
class A(Model): i = IntegerField() class B(Model): a = ForeignKey(A)
B there is now two fields:
a_id is the unique id as stored in the database, while
a can be used to directly access the fields in
A, like this:
b = B.objects.get(...) b.a.i = 5; # Set the field of A b.a.save() # Save A
