I've some django models for my extended customers profile. Problem is this fact code doesn't create tables when syncdb can be used (simply nothing happens. No validation errors). Can you explain that happening? (Also individuals models give import error elsewhere) :

#!/usr/bin/env python
# encoding: utf-8
from django.db import models
from django.contrib.auth.models import User
from registration.signals import user_registered
from forms import ExtendedRegistrationForm
import hashlib

class InheritedProfile(models.Model):
    first_name = models.CharField("Name", max_length=50, blank=True, null=True)
    last_name = models.CharField("Last name", max_length=50, blank=True, null=True)
    pid = models.CharField("PESEL", max_length=11, blank=True, null=True)
    street = models.CharField("Street", max_length=50, blank=True, null=True)
    number = models.CharField("Flat/house number", max_length=10, blank=True, null=True)
    code = models.CharField("Zip ", max_length=6, blank=True, null=True)
    city = models.CharField("City", max_length=50, blank=True, null=True) 
    class Meta:
        abstract=True

class UserProfile(InheritedProfile):
    def upload_path(self, field_attname):
        filename = hashlib.md5(field_attname).hexdigest()[:4] + "_" + field_attname
        return "uploads/users/%s" % (filename,)

    user = models.ForeignKey(User, unique=True, related_name='profile')
    image = models.ImageField(upload_to=upload_path, verbose_name="Image", blank=True, null=True)

    class Meta:
        ordering = ['-id']
        db_table = 'userprofile'

    def __unicode__(self):
        return u"%s " % self.user.username

def user_created(sender, user, request, **kwargs):
    form = ExtendedRegistrationForm(request.POST)
    extended_user = UserProfile(user=user)
    extended_user.is_active = False
    extended_user.first_name = form.cleaned_data['first_name']
    extended_user.last_name = form.cleaned_data['last_name']
    extended_user.pid = form.cleaned_data['pid']
    extended_user.image = form.cleaned_data['image']
    extended_user.street = form.cleaned_data['street']
    extended_user.number = form.cleaned_data['number']
    extended_user.code = form.cleaned_data['code']
    extended_user.city = form.cleaned_data['city']
    extended_user.save()

user_registered.connect(user_created)

class Friend(InheritedProfile):
    friend_of = models.ForeignKey(UserProfile, related_name='friend_of')
    class Meta:
        db_table = 'friend'

In contrary this code produces tables perfectly :

#!/usr/bin/env python
# encoding: utf-8
from django.db import models
from django.contrib.auth.models import User
import hashlib

class InheritedProfile(models.Model):
    first_name = models.CharField("Name", max_length=50, blank=True, null=True)
    last_name = models.CharField("Last name", max_length=50, blank=True, null=True)
    pid = models.CharField("PESEL", max_length=11, blank=True, null=True)
    street = models.CharField("Street", max_length=50, blank=True, null=True)
    number = models.CharField("Flat/house number", max_length=10, blank=True, null=True)
    code = models.CharField("Zip ", max_length=6, blank=True, null=True)
    city = models.CharField("City", max_length=50, blank=True, null=True) 
    class Meta:
        abstract=True

class UserProfile(InheritedProfile):
    def upload_path(self, field_attname):
        filename = hashlib.md5(field_attname).hexdigest()[:4] + "_" + field_attname
        return "uploads/users/%s" % (filename,)

    user = models.ForeignKey(User, unique=True, related_name='profile')
    image = models.ImageField(upload_to=upload_path, verbose_name="Image", blank=True, null=True)

    class Meta:
        ordering = ['-id']
        db_table = 'userprofile'

    def __unicode__(self):
        return u"%s " % self.user.username

class Friend(InheritedProfile):
    friend_of = models.ForeignKey(UserProfile, related_name='friend_of')
    class Meta:
        db_table = 'friend'

Must I move this user_produced function elsewhere ? Signals should not lead to further problems here...

You appear to possess some type of mix import should you import some models to forms plus some form after that to models this can not be resolve, because when processing models forms is needed to become imported, and forms requires models again... This can not be resolved!

Besides i think it's better design not requiring to import forms inside a models module, since they're more associated with sights!
