Model Detail Pages

If a model’s field values are modified, then it is necessary to add the fields ‘_position’ and ‘_ref_node_id’. Otherwise, it is not possible to create instances of the model.

Example:

class MyAdmin(TreeAdmin):
    fields = ('title', 'body', 'is_edited', 'timestamp', '_position', '_ref_node_id',)
    form = movenodeform_factory(MyNode)

admin.site.register(MyNode, MyAdmin)
