I noticed something in the documentation that is unclear especially to django new comers like myself.
If you follow the wiki(copy/paste) like I did getting posts by ID does not work.
The problem is that under 'Mapping URLs' the url pattern doesn't point to anything.
The read code actually points to 'blogpost_id' instead. Therefore the example url patter should read.
Or the other way around. The 2 a mixed up throughout the wiki. This makes it a difficult if you are just trying to do a quick audition of the app before making a committment.
