+.. admonition:: Make sure your views are all correct
+ As part of working out which URL names map to which patterns, the
+ ``reverse()`` function has to import all of your URLConf files and examine
+ the name of each view. This involves importing each view function. If
+ there are *any* errors whilst importing any of your view functions, it
+ will cause ``reverse()`` to raise an error, even if that view function is
+ not the one you are trying to reverse.
+ Make sure that any views you reference in your URLConf files exist and can
+ be imported correctly. Do not include lines that reference views you
+ haven't written yet, because those views will not be importable.
