I'm having a problem with a Django model. There's a model field known as URLField, which has a method .verify_exists. Basically this function checks that the URL exists when the instance is saved. Unfortunately, when the site is live, any URL I enter in the admin site will not save, even definitely real URLs like my own site, Google or PythonAnywhere.
There isn't a problem with the code in, e.g. models.py or admin.py, because it works when it's running locally on my machine (i.e. 127.0.0.1:8000/admin/ ), provided I'm connected to the internet. So, I'm wondering, is this something PythonAnywhere is blocking? Or am I missing some magick setting somewhere?
Appreciate the help,
