All this means is that no error will be raised. For example, in this filter::
- Blog.objects.filter(entry__author__name='Lennon')
+ Blog.objects.filter(entry__authors__name='Lennon')
(if there was a related ``Author`` model), if there was no ``author``
associated with an entry, it would be treated as if there was also no ``name``
attached, rather than raising an error because of the missing ``author``.
Usually this is exactly what you want to have happen. The only case where it
might be confusing is if you are using ``isnull``. Thus::
- Blog.objects.filter(entry__author__name__isnull=True)
+ Blog.objects.filter(entry__authors__name__isnull=True)
will return ``Blog`` objects that have an empty ``name`` on the ``author`` and
also those which have an empty ``author`` on the ``entry``. If you don't want
those latter objects, you could write::
- Blog.objects.filter(entry__author__isnull=False,
- entry__author__name__isnull=True)
+ Blog.objects.filter(entry__authors__isnull=False,
+ entry__authors__name__isnull=True)
