Adding a movie model to admin

To add the movie model to admin, go back to /movie/, and register our model with the following:

from django.contrib import admin
from .models import Movie

When you save your file, go back to admin. The movie model will now show up (as shown in Figure 5.8):

Figure 5.8 – Admin page

Try adding a movie object by clicking on +Add. You will be brought to the Add movie form (as shown in Figure 5.9):

Note that Url is not in bold, as we marked it as optional back in, url = models.URLField(blank=True). The other required fields are in bold.

Try adding a movie and hit Save. Your movie object will be saved to the database and reflected in the admin page (as shown in Figure 5.10):
