I just can’t undersant what’s missing in my exercise. Can someone help me pls?

I think it’s ok. To go to next exercise just view the solution and overwrite with what they give you :man_shrugging:

In view the solution they only show the code in admin.py, wich they didn’t change. The bash code is not shown.

There is a bug in this exercise. At some point Django implemented a check to see if passwords are similar to the email address, which this one is, so it doesn’t let you set it as the password. You can see this if you try to change the password manually in the Admin UI.

View Solution, Replace, and move on.
